Monday Finish the story
Mondays are becoming my writing days. Lars has a thing at 10pm most mondays so thats when I can do ‘whatever’ for an hour. For the past few weeks I’ve written blog posts for other sites and tonight I have a post brewing for the non-toy gift site. It is fitting that one of the challenges I’m trying out is a super short story prompt. I am given the first line (in italics) and a picture and 150 words. ps. 150 is NOT A LOT.
ok, here goes, my first Finish the Story;
Diamond Jack had his hideout next to the Rattle Snake River. He rarely saw a snake, much less a rattler, but today one was sitting on his front step basking in the sun, soaking in the heat of the concrete.
The point of a hideout is that it is not close to anyone else. This writer’s getaway was his treat after his first big book. He would often retreat there when he was in the swing of the story. Being a bit of a nerd, snakes were not in his wheel house but was it worth going back to town for help?
Town was 30 minutes away and the story was bubbling out of his brain. Jack yielded the front door to the snake and quietly broke into his own house. “you win this time snake” thought Jack and made a note to google ‘kill a snake’ for later
