Another 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....
I look back over my shoulder, squinting into the late afternoon sun, gawking with stunned alarm at the broad rolling muddy waters of the Mississippi.
Thick black smelly water begins to fill the car from the bottom up, giving me just a moment to ponder my decision to take the powerful candy apple red sports car that wasn’t mine and speed down an unknown path toward an ending that wouldn’t surprise anyone. The cops would surely be in big, big trouble for chasing me. I always knew I’d pay them back somehow.

Oh black water.....

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.

Very clever use of this week's prompt! Nothing like a bad boy (or girl) to get a story rolling. KathyReplyDelete
