Saturday-Centus Week 9

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to the ninth 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 and you can link more than one story if you like.

We have a guest "prompt writer" this week. Our very own Sami wrote todays prompt and it's a fun one! Thanks Sami!

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. You cannot split the prompt.

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.

Try to visit each one because they are tremendous and since they are so short they are definitely a quick read!

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.


"Are you sure that's the one you want?"

I felt a little lump in my throat as I peered down at my choice, held tightly in my hand. I didn't think this would be so nerve-wracking. Was I making the wrong decision? I couldn't agonize over this any longer.

I took a deep breath before managing to say, "... Yes, it is."

This link will be live until next Saturday morning around 7 am. And please, remember to link to your SC URL...not your main blog. If you are unsure how to do this please leave me a message in the comments or e-mail me and I'll help you through it! Have fun!

Succinct and yet a roller coaster ride of thought and emotion. For we have all been there...that instant, frozen in time in which...the decision has to be made!

CM said...

So cool! Love the prompt, I linked up for the first time today. :-)

I've got a big 4th of July post for today, so I won't be putting up my Centus until Monday. It's a good prompt!


Judie said...

Jenny, I absolutely have no clue how to do this! I am usually good at following directions, but yours could be written in Chinese as far as I am concerned. I only know very basic computer stuff. I think I have laready screwed up and I haven't even written anything yet.

Susan Anderson said...

On second thought, I will just put my Centus at the bottom of my 4th of July post. I hope people will figure out to scroll down!

I think I might do more than one for this one, but put them all in one post.

I have a couple ideas swirling in my head right've been warned.

Julie said...

Jenny, love the idea. I think I'll give this a whirl. I did read a bunch that are already done so now I understand better what is expected.
Take care Jenny and do have a blessed weekend.

Has it been 9 weeks already? Perhaps we shouldn't name these by weeks it is a tough reminder of how time flies.
