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.
Ninja limped, shuffled up each rocky step. The final gateway punctured the evening mist. The increasing sweat impaired his vision. He couldn’t read the ancient script surrounding the opening, thus he dared not move. Fingers twitched. The gate was just one step away. Weakness battled will power. He straightened his spine, eyes tall. Master approached from the other side.
“You were warned not to come,” said Master.
Ninja remained still, silent, but ready.
Master dared not look away but pointed to the sign next to the gate.
“Closed for refurbishing.”
Master spoke. “Gift shop is open.”
“Tiiimmyyyy!” called Ninja’s mom.
My inspiration for this came from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip. Sometimes Calvin would imagine himself as a superhero Stupendous man, or adventure hero Spaceman Spiff, or the gruff detective Tracer Bullett, and then his mother or father would do something that would snap him back into reality.
