In The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today, someone will die.” Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it. Take it wherever you like, but make it original and make it 33 words exactly.
“It is the first day of November
and so, today, someone will die.”
Sounds like a prophecy of madness.
Yet, chills ran up and down my spine.
Raspy whispers of a homeless woman.
