For the “Are you up for some emojination?” Daily Create, I used the random emoji generator to produce five image prompts that I turned into the short story below.

“It’s fine, no harm done,” she responded with a smile.

  3. Great job with the story plot! It has been fun seeing how people work with the different emojis and I love your representation. I don’t know how I would have combined trumpets and tennis but you did a fabulous job with them. I had to click through about a dozen different emojis until I found the rights set.
