Writing True Sentences

The brief for October 2021's Furious Fiction was to set the short story in a COURT, include a character who measures something, and the words BALLOON, ROCK and UMBRELLA. So recalling Ernest Hemingway's advice to write one true sentence, I wrote, "The policewoman at the front of the Court is trying to catch my eye."

Writing True Sentences is a blog post from the Tall And True writers' website, written and narrated by Robert Fairhead.
