Need a "slice of life" story idea for a class.

I am in a writing course & just finished an assignment. Had 3 different people edit it and then 2 different web sites do the same, turned it in and it was rejected for being too long. No where in the assignment notes did it say what the word count was. The assignment went take the story from the previous one (which had a limit of 1,500 words) and finish it in 3 parts. 1,500 times 3= 4500 words right? nope apparently 2,500.
Now I have to complete a new "slice of life" story in 10 days in 2,500 words and I have no idea what to write about.
Ideas anyone? It has to have a female protagonist and be relevant to a modern woman.
The rejected story is about being lost and separated from your child in a land where you can't speak the language.

  • 2500 words doesn't sound a lot. I PM you in a minute.
