Doing a bit of internet hopping I stumbled upon Saturday Centus, a themed writing meme. The challenge is to write 100 words to add to the prompt started by Jenny Matlock from off on my tangent.
The writing prompt is in itallics....
The small Cessna 172 picked up speed as it roared down the runway, Sara at the controls, the flight instructor beside her,
She shook the daydream from her mind and went back to watching the bird, whose wings dipped in perfect harmony with her feelings. Up, down, side to side. When the bird dipped close enough for Sara to see it she noticed how incredibly plain it was. But in flight, wings spread, soaring, it appeared to be so much more.
Just like me, thought Sara.....

I can fly.....

Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.

Beth, I didn't read your post yet but I wanted to explain how to do the linky so everyone can come to your story.ReplyDelete
The top rectangle should be your Title or the name of your blog: I can Fly
The bottom rectangle is where you paste your URL. Click on the name of your post. And then copy the URL displayed above your blog. In the case of this story it is this URL: http://www.bethkobysnotallwhowanderarelost.com/2010/05/i-can-fly.html
Now paste that in the bottom rectangle and you will be good to go.
If you have any questions you can e-mail me at: jennymatlock at cox dot net
I just saw you had linked wrong and wanted to fix it before I forgot.
It is correct now!
PS. Good morning!
I'll be back later to read.

Hi I just came by from the list at Lady Bloggers Society. You looked interesting and you are! I will totally be back for more of your fun posts!ReplyDelete
So often, things are so much more beautiful from a distance. Think of standing across the room from a Monet or a Renoir, then walking closer. All that beauty melts into a blur.ReplyDelete
Thanks for such a thoughtful story.
Seeing a plane as a bird...very creative!ReplyDelete
