October Madness Challenge #1

 
 
Today's challenge from Britney:
1. Visit this website:
2. Keep all the fields the same and hit “Generate.”
3. Read the prompt at the bottom of the page.
4. Write for 5 minutes and see what you come up with.
 
Here's my challange prompt: 'A character steals something, but it is done for different reasons than people would expect. A character is greedy throughout most of the story. During the story, a character has an accident at home.'
 
 

Jessie couldn't help it. She had the disease. Jessie was a kleptomaniac. Since she was six years old and stole her Nana's favorite watch. She had it bad. Jessie took unusual things. She couldn't help herself.
 
Over the years her disease became greed. She had a proclivity for greed, not taking things anymore out of habit, but out of greed.
 
Jessie's stash of stolen goods built and built until they overwhelmed her and she has no room in her tiny house. She'd become a hoarder and in the end her disease and her greed caused the accident. She lit the cigarette too close to a brand new shiny gas heater.
 
Note:
All of the elements were used in this prompt.
Paragraph 1:steals
Paragraph 2: greedy
Paragraph 3: accident
Time: 10:25 am-10:30 am CST
