Write from the perspective of a peasant citizen of Pompeii living his or her regular life leading up to the eruption, and then witnessing the eruption first hand.
(We will submit this vignette as our official Guinness World Record attempt, so please make sure you contribute to the story!)
Update: The Guinness World Record attempt allows for a maximum of 10 sentences per writer. Please keep this in mind as you brainstorm. I know this is different than the other vignettes, where you can write up to 800 words, but Guinness is very strict in their guidelines. Please be in touch if you have any questions.
