Won Hundred Word Wednesday Double Feature

Once again I was out of town last week and didn't think far enough ahead to do my writing prompt.

So I'm doing two again this week.

Here's last weeks prompt:  THE PINK GLOVE LAY ON THE GROUND, ALMOST COVERED.


The pink glove lay on the ground, almost covered. The snow hadn’t stopped falling since late last night. He picked it up wondering who it belonged to. Probably some kid who hadn’t noticed it was missing.
He shook off the snow and placed it gently on the fence post, hoping to make it visible if someone came looking.
As he turned to continue on his errand, he ran into her.
“Jillian?”
“Spencer? Is that you? I haven’t seen you in ten years.”
The desire to caress her face like he used to washed over him.
Was she single?

No ring.

Now for this weeks prompt:  THE URGE TO INTERRUPT HIM BEFORE HE HAD FINISHED WAS OVERWHELMING. 


Stopping another dragon mid-hunt was stupid even for a maverick like himself.
Yet if he didn’t stop Kors from devouring that human, Drog would regret it. Something about the human sparked a memory from years ago.
Drog took in a slow breath. Goat’s milk. The same thing he’d been fed as a hatchling when his mother had been killed by knights.
Drog inched closer to the peasant and looked into the terrified eyes.
Recognition sparked in both of them. Drog swung his tail into Kors.
I claim this one as my slave. It was the only way to save him.




Now go see what the other's did with the prompt

WonHundred Word Wednesday

These sure give me a lot to think about. It's fun to see where my mind leads me with the different prompts. This was inspired by the account I was told of my Grandparents. 

It was time, she’d fought against it for so long



It was time, she’d fought against it for so long, but now she found herself staring death in the eye. Leland had put up a valiant fight against cancer, but he was finished.
She held his hand and rested her head against his.
“I can see children at the end of the bed,” he said.
“Do you know them,” she asked.
He nodded weakly, then frowned. “They’re leaving.”
“Do you want to go with them?” she asked gently.
“Yes,” he sighed.

“Then go have fun. I’ll see you again soon.” She kissed her husband of fifty-six years one last time. 

Now go see what the others did.

Wednesday Writing Prompts

Wonhundred Word Wednesdays have been helping me keep my writing muscles working. I've been doing edits for so long, if I didn't have these, I think my mind would get really bored. So many of the prompts just beg to be developed into longer stories. 

It will be fun to come back to them some day and see where I can take them. 

Here's today's prompt:

It was just for one night: 



It was just for one night. A million dollars and a newly built mansion would be the prize to the one who could stay the longest in the haunted mansion. I’d lived in worse conditions. Endured more fear and terror than anyone alive. I could handle it.

At least I thought I could.

I placed my sleeping bag on the hard floor in the corner and settled down to sleep.  Most of the other contestants were gone within moments. One stayed for over two hours before finally fleeing.
None of it scared me.

Until my murdered sister spoke my name. 


Please check out the other ones.

WonHundred Word Wednesday

And here we are again. Another Wednesday, another prompt.  The rules of the game are to take a writing prompt and write 100 words. Simple, right.  Some days yes, some days no. Either way, it sure is a great way to exercise my writing muscles. 


The PROMPT:   She had to find the necklace before...

She had to find the necklace before Granny noticed it missing. The wooden jewelry box held odd costume jewelry, but that one necklace was obviously special.
Granny stroked the bright blue stone so often, Robin thought it had to be something magical.
She’d slipped it over her head, letting the heavy stone hang between her barely-there cleavage. It felt so natural, Robin forgot about it and went about her chores when Pa called her.
Now it was gone. Probably lost in the barn where she’d been mucking out stalls.

Finding the sapphire in the blue dragon manure wouldn’t be easy.


Now go see what the others have done. Give extra love to anyone who included a dragon. ;)
