Seven ways to sin

seven deadly sins by Ligorano + Reese writing promptTo kick off the maniacal month of October, write a short short story about someone succumbing to one of the seven deadly sins. With a character motivated by greed, envy, laziness, gluttony, wrath, pride or lust, how can you quickly set the scene and get inside of the reader’s head? Focus on visuals and a defining act that will bring your character to his or her doom.
