Wonhundred Word Wednesdays.

Time again for the writing prompts. If you've never done something like this, I highly encourage you to try.

Learning how to cut down the unnecessary words has helped me immensely in my other writing as well.

Plus these are just fun to think up a new story and see where it might lead someday.

So here is this week's.

October 29th: Was it a knock that had woken her?
She eased herself out of the bed and placed her feet gently on the floor. She didn’t make a sound as she draped her tattered robe around her thin shoulders. She grabbed the double barreled shot gun from where it leaned against the end of her bed.
She chambered a shell and brought the barrel up, aiming at the door. No one had knocked on her door in ages.
She was almost sure she was the last human in these parts.
If any creature out there had evolved enough to learn to knock, she’d have trouble on her hands.

A this one is a previous week's I'd missed:

September 10th: She had found something that would mean she'd never be poor again - but there was a catch
There’s always a catch. No matter how hard you try to work things out to your benefit, it just doesn’t go according to plan.
The genie in the lamp would grant her untold riches. She’d never have to eat from a dumpster again. Never have to beg for help again.
But the genie wanted something in return.
He was tired of being a slave. He wanted to experience life for himself.
So she accepted his offer and made the wish.

All her memories of her former life vanished and she looked up into the lavender eyes of her new husband.

I really loved the way this one turned out and I'm tempted to make this a longer story.
