Hey y’all, remember the writing challenge I proposed to you last week? The one that goes something like…
Compose a short story… made up of 14 text messages… and ONLY 14 text messages.
And, as promised, I am here to today to take this challenge for myself!
So, here goes.

122-215-5676 at 14:09, 11/11/20: Sorry, isn’t this Dylan Everett from the Anthony Dorms?
266-677-8901 at 14:44, 11/11/20: no, actually, but this was his old number he gave to me. i can pass him your number in chem lab tomorrow if you want
122-215-5676 at 15:02, 11/11/20: That would be great. Also, can you tell him I have his Intro to Nutrition notebook, but I left it in Newman Hall.
266-215-5676 at 15:09, 11/11/20: no prob. also, i’m going to dinner in newman hall later, do you want me to look for it
122-215-5676 at 15:11, 11/11/20: If you could, yeah. It’s close to Vernon’s Table, right by the doors. I left it in one of the storage lockers. It’s where I keep a lot of stuff.
266-215-5676 at 15:13, 11/11/20: got it. does the locker have a combination though
122-215-5676 at 15:15, 11/11/20: Nah, I kept the door open.
266-215-5676 at 15:25, 11/11/20: ok. anything else
122-215-5676 at 15:31, 11/11/20: Yeah, make sure you don’t miss the Biannual University Rave, Nine o’clock at Ian’s place Thursday!
I really hope those aren’t real phone numbers…
Also, there it is! I tried the challenge! Did I pass?
ALSO ALSO, I put a lot of “little riddles” in all of that, if you didn’t catch it. If you need a hint as to what/where they are, I’ll tell you this: pay attention to the capitalized names/places.
And, of course, I invite you all to share your own versions of this challenge down below in the comments! I seriously wanna hear what you guys came up with!
AND AND let me know what you thought/think of this whole challenge.
