Saturday Centus - Hanging off a cliff...

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to week eighty-eight of Saturday Centus. I am only one week behind in reading now! Go me!


It's a new year and I'm feeling like we should stretch our brains just a tiny bit to rid ourselves of the last residues of fudge and sugar cookies.

Let's try a two week Saturday Centus.

Using a literary device.


I said a literary device.

It's good for you.

Don't groan. Please.

This week I thought we could try to use a cliffhanger. A cliffhanger is defined as: The narrative ends unresolved, to draw the audience back to a future episode for the resolution.


The two part challenge.

Next week we will conclude our cliffhanger centus.

Cool, right?

THE PROMPT THIS WEEK IS: Hanging off a cliff! (Might as well be literal while we're attempting to use this literary device!)
WORD COUNT - Not to exceed 100 words plus the 4 words of the prompt. 104 words total.
STYLE OF WRITING - Any so long as you utilize a cliffhanger writing device to wrap your story up. Next week we'll do an additional 100 words for the rest of the story.

The regular restrictions apply: PG, no splitting of the prompt, play nicely and visit the other entries, any style or genre of writing you prefer.

Please display my 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.

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.

Feel free to link up anytime between now and next Saturday!

Girl, this is ultra COOL !!! Basically a 200 word cliffhanger story split over 2 weeks with all the pictures we want...that will purge the cookies, fat and candy out of my brain for sure !

I'm off to a bridal shower/brunch and Papa is helping friends move...busy Saturday but will get to gettin' later this P.M.

Hope you and your Hubs have a lovely weekend !
