Writing exercises for jarheads

Toys For Tots and other notable events are taking up most of my time lately. In the meantime, I present a 26 word story penned by yours truly.  It was a writing exercise I found on the web and had some fun with. I think the final product is appropriate for the Christmapocalyptic season.

The mission: Write a 26 word story where every word begins with a different letter of the alphabet.

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Alien bio-engineers created drones, effective fighting grunts hailed intergalactically. Jaded killers left mankind nearly obliterated. Professors quietly recalculated solutions, tragically unleashing viral weapon X. Yes, zombies.

I invite you to post your own 26 word stories in comments.

Semper Fidelis!

Ok, i'll play... although i had to cheat a bit at the end.

Angry beyond caring, Deborah exited Frank’s grimy house. “It’d justify killing! Losing Mum’s new opal pendant!” Quite revolted, she tramped unhappily, vectoring westwards. “Xanthous yikkering zoocephalist!!!”

Another bright Christmas dressed elegantly for good, happy, innocent, jolly kids. Long memorable nights of pretty, quaint red stockings. Tired unseen vigorous warm xeric yawning…zzzz’s.

Merry Christmapocalptic Season!
