In a continuing effort to improve as a writer, I’ve added this exercise to my weekly drills. Writers from all over are prompted and must write a response in 100 words. Below is my first effort. It demands efficiency, encourages creativity, and I think it’s fun. Let me know what you think, and click on the image above if you’d like to participate.
This week’s prompt was: …you bought her what…
Without further adieu…
“I didn’t know.” Jake spun his wedding ring around his finger, staring at the rain.
“Didn’t know what?”
“That it was hers.” Jake’s palm smacked the column on his porch – water splashed his cheek.
Jake turned to speak, but fear held his tongue.
The boy followed Jake’s gaze – his soaked mother walked up the drive, glaring at the umbrella in her husband’s hand.
