Dinner Table Conversations

Food tastes best when it’s homemade, so I brought my friend for dinner. Grandma said he was the best roast she ever had.

Improving your writing

One of the purposes of writing two-sentence stories is to hone your craft. It forces you to be concise and clear with your message. It is surprising how long it can take to come up with two sentences that make sense. You are taking the beginning, middle, and end and putting them in a tiny box of vocabulary.

Are you a fan of the macabre? So are we! Check out our collection of dark poetry and fiction.

Dark Poetry & Fiction

25 stories
a creepy jack in the box outside of a store front.
a hand painted black squeezing bright pink slime between its fingers.

When you are struggling with writer's block or burnout, it can be inspiring to make your mind think outside the box. Taking a topic that you enjoy and putting it into the smallest sentence possible is so much fun! We highly recommend creating a writer exercise around two-sentence stories.

The challenge

To our readers, we challenge you to write a two-sentence masterpiece! Any genre, but it must be only two sentences. Tag us (@ Tas(They/Them) so we can read and comment on your work!
