Saturday Centus - Be afraid, be very afraid....

Jenny Matlock
Welcome to week thirty-eight of Saturday Centus.

I think we all need to continue to shake things up a little bit for the New Year so this week we'll continue doing that. I'll tell you more in a moment, but go ahead and curse me now!

This week, we're going to go further with a shake up and do a genre specific SC from the prompt.

This week you can have the whole 100 words (plus the prompt) BUT try writing sci-fi.


BTW, I hate sci-fi, so I'm not picking this because it's easy for me.

I got this prompt from a galaxy far, far you can't technically be annoyed at me.

The prompt is:

"Beam me up, Scottie..."

You have the entire week to link your work to the meme and you can link more than one story if you like. Please try mightily to visit all the other weeks. There are some great writers participating in this meme AND it will be a zippy quick read this week for sure!

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.

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.

Link anytime between now and next Saturday morning.

I'm going back to bed. When I wake up, this will all have been a bad dream. Right? Kat

I have been awake a chunk of the night...finally just got up and came to computer. When I saw this prompt, I moaned out loud! Yuck. Went to brew tea, turned up the furnace, and a wee tad of a scene came to me. Sure not sci-fi but it was something! You almost knocked me out of the game, Jenny, but I rallied!

Terra said...

Like Bonnie, I thought I was knocked out this week, but I mustered up a little something....yes, Yes I did. Way to go Jenny...

Allie said...

I love you. I'll stick to reruns and leave the writing up to you!

You certainly aren't making life easy for Tina, who is trying to link all of her stories together. I look forward to reading her sci-fi take on the body problem :D

linda said...

Oh poop!
You about got me this time, but i'm up for a challenge.
I think.
Thankfully we have all week to come up with something.
Ok, lets see, beam me up beam me up beam me up.....zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Tina said...

Why don't you like me, Jenny? I've got this murder thing going, and I've dragged her to the mall, I survived Tom T. Urkee, and all the goofy holiday prompts and now I gotta change to sci-fi????? Sigh.

Unknown said...

Had to stew about this one for a while. Hmmmm. Don't know if mine ended up as fact or fiction.

Susan Anderson said...

Oh, woe is me. Sci-fi?

Shoot me now.

Hi - I am excited to join for the first time!! I have been a little nervous to do so but it was great to...WRITE! Thanks said...

Dear Miss Matlock,
Has someone been drinking way too much - and I mean WAY TOO MUCH - caffeine these days?
Just wondering.
PS Can I please be demoted to the more special class?

Judie said...

Earth to Jenny! Come in, Jenny! Can you hear us? Please put on your oxygen mask, Jenny, before you lose consciousness! You are beginning to talk nonsense.
