Every Wednesday Madison Woods posts a picture prompt to challenge writers to create a 100-word story or poem or anything that works for you. then post your work on your blog. additionally, on friday, you go back to her site and post a link to your blog entry in the comments on her friday fictioneers post.
I’m going to try to keep up with this, as should you. give it a shot. i prefer to stick to 100 words, but she doesn’t mind either way. not everyone has the time to sit and write, revise, edit, revise, edit, etc. until getting it down to 100 and telling everything you want to tell.
For the past few weeks, I had trouble and didn’t come up with something until the last minute. This week too. Oh well.
Here’s this week’s picture and my 100 words –
“Hey Dave, look at that bug.”
Bug? You little shit. Try Zygoptera. Try Ischnura Elegans. Can you clock twenty-four miles per hour? No. And don’t even try “dragonfly.” Dragonflies can’t fold their wings back. I can. See? Little bastard. Who do you think eats those mosquitoes and spiders that freak you out? Yeah, me. That’s right douche face. I can rip a spider right from its web and eat his ass while you’re running for mommy. Think just any bug gets the nickname “El Caballito del Diablo”? The Devil’s Horse. Well, sorta. Whatta you say now, punk?
(smack) “Got him!”
