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.
Here’s this week’s picture and my 100 words –
“What’s that?” Jimmy trudged through the woods.
“Machete.” David hacked at low branches. “Found it by the creek.”
“What’s it for?”
“Chopping things, trees and bushes. Explorer stuff.”
“Why not walk around them?” asked Jimmy.
“Because it’s fun.”
“To kill things that you don’t have to?”
“Yup.” David swooped low, slicing wild flowers.
“We’re lost again.”
Jimmy leaned against a rock, David followed, tilting his hat back and wiping sweat from his forehead. The afternoon sun hugged and warmed them, eyes and legs heavy. A slim vine slowly pulled the machete from David’s limp hand. Another crept towards his neck.
