Saturday Centus - Week 3

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to the third week of Saturday Centus.

This is a themed writing meme.

Each Saturday you will be giving a new "prompt" for the week and you have the entire week to link your work to the meme.

Mr. Jenny has taken over the writing of the prompts and I suspect he will really make us stretch our imaginations!

Each linked essay must be 100 words or less, not including the "prompt" words. No pictures should be used. No profanity. The prompt words can be used in any place within your story but must be left intact.

Please display link button or just a hyper-link back to Saturday Centus. Be careful to link your SC URL to the Linky and not just link to your main blog.

I would suggest that since these are so short, if you can't think of a title just use your blog name as the title in the Linky.

And it would be great if you would try and visit the rest of the links. Actually, it will be fun for you because they were wonderful last week for sure!

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 3 PROMPT
I look back over my shoulder, squinting into the late afternoon sun, gawking with stunned alarm at the broad rolling muddy waters of the Mississippi,


This link will be live until next Saturday morning around 7 am.

Another round of applause for Mr. Jenny for coming up with a great prompt.

Your prompt made me "flash" on my son who lives a few blocks from the Mississippi in Minneapolis. He has a violin repair shop that he shared with his pet iquana, Gustav, for many years. When the lizard died in the early spring, Son and a friend went kayaking on the river with the four-foot-plus corpse. Son placed the lizard on an ice floe and gave it a Viking funeral. We often speculated on where Gustav finally came to rest.

Haha, great prompt. You always come up with fun things. If I were more creative, this would be fun to join in on.

I've never done a writing meme before so this should be fun! I'll give it a try and try not to embarrass myself too much. LOL!
