So I was happily browsing WordPress this morning when I came across a post at Only 100 Words with a writing prompt and I thought I’d have a go. Here’s the prompt:
You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:
- Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).
- Link back to this post (& check the link shows up under the weekly post).
- Tag your post with 3LineTales (so everyone can find you in the Reader).
- Read and comment on other TLT participants’ lines.
- Have fun.
And here’s what I came up with:
Death at River Road
It happened as the elders had always warned; all I wanted was some lunch, but what I got was something quite different.
Something sharp jabbed my cheek and I was wrenched through the water – slowly at first then faster and faster until my world whirred right past me and I shot up through the surface into the hot, dry sunshine.
My skin began to crackle, my eyes were sore with drought, and I knew, at last, it was time to meet my maker.
Thanks Sonya – that was fun. I’ll be sure to join in for the next one too 😀
