Monday Finish the Story – Identity

Arriving at the beach, she reflected on her life. However, there wasn’t much to reflect on after losing the memory of everything in her past. Her memories were exactly two days long, beginning on the day she woke up in her car after it went off an embankment on the side of the road.

Today, she went to the beach to see if it would help trigger some memories of her past. She watched as the waves lapped the crusty rocks densely scattered along the beach. She sat on one of the larger rocks and listened to the calming movement of the sea. She closed her eyes and let her mind drift from one thought to another hoping for some revelation to her identity.

Suddenly, a large hand picked her up and removed her along with the entire scene. At the last minute, the author had changed his mind and decided not to use this story in his book after all.

    • I don’t know JR, that sounds like an awful lot of work and I worked very hard for many years in order to retire. LOL! If I can write a book and have fun at the same time then I might do it.

  1. how many times have we done exactly that?? Sometimes I write up a story, and before i know it turns out into a completely different one! Enjoyed your story! It’s fun!

  2. This was so cool. I really liked this story because I was hooked by the beginning with the memory loss then you went in a totally different direction. Nicely done!

  3. PJ, this was brilliant! Loved it. You set the scene so well with her memory loss and trying to recover it at the beach and then all of a sudden she’s deleted from the story. What a fantastic twist at the end!

  4. Great surprise ending, Joy. And she had such potencial too. Maybe she’ll nag the author until he puts her back or into another of his books. Really amusing. πŸ˜€ — Suzanne

  5. Nice work , Joy! A very sudden and surprising ending. Very clever…I enjoyed being jolted to having to adjust to a new change for the ending of your story! πŸ†

  6. You are getting better and better. Dramatic story and then it was just thrown out by the author. Wonder why he/she did that?

  7. Love the ending! It caught me off guard since the beginning was so interesting and I thought the memories would come back to her. Great job PJ! I love reading your stories

  8. I got bummed out…. was not expecting that….Nice job….
    I may have to learn more about this challenge
    not sure I could stop at 150 though

I would love to read your thoughts...
