Short story

So for my portfolio I have to write a short story totalling 2,500 words. I was inspired by the following quote;

“Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned,”
– William Congreve, The Mourning Bride (1697)

I was thinking of writing a story of a woman who is obsessed with her ex-lover and is filled with rage and the desire to seek revenge, especially as her ex-lover has now found someone else.

What do you guys think? Good or not? Any suggestions?

    1. Thanks 🙂 with only 2,500 words I haven’t got that much space to build up but was going to start small with phone calls, text messages, following his movements etc. Typical stalker behaviour. Then eventually move on to physical contact. I even played with the idea of the woman dying her hair exactly like her ex bf’s new girlfriend!
