Saturday Centus - Week 1

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to the first week of Saturday Centus.

This is a themed writing meme.

Each Saturday you will be giving a new "prompt" for the week.

You have the entire week to link your work to the meme.

Each linked essay must be 100 words or less, not including the "prompt" words. No pictures should be used. No profanity.

Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus.

Please link your SC URL to the Linky and not your main blog.

Please e-mail me directly with ???'s or ask your question in a comment and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.


Week 1 Prompt:

My untied shoelace changed my life. As I leaned down to re-tie it, I kicked away a few leaves. When I turned my head slightly to look where the leaves had been, I was astonished to see a rubber-banded wad of hundred dollar bills nestled in a little indention in the muddy ground.

OMG can you help me? I'm leaving links everywhere I go and I'm not doing anything. I put up a new post and every since then, its been happening. I've deleted the post and have done it again, to no avail. Now, I'm afraid to browse my favorite blogs as I'm leaving my links and I don't want to. Do you know how to stop this???
