writespiration-2017

This week your story needs to include the following phrase:
“I don’t believe you.”
“I don’t believe you! There is no way Johnny Depp is inside that café. Stop playing with me!”
Leanne stormed past her best friends, the bell tinkling to signal her arrival.
Only he was there, and so was she, stinking of manure, after having cleaned out the stables.
“Ground! Swallow me now!”

#SoCS Nov. 18/17 – Psst!

Linda’s #SoCS prompt this week:

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “psst, or any other attention-getting noise or word.” Find a word or noise that you’d use to get someone’s attention, and start your post off with it. Enjoy!

 

 

Ahem… Cough, cough… Are you listening?

I feel I need to be a little honest here…

I’ve been a bad girl.

Well, okay, not like law-breaking awful, but still, I have been naughty.

You know I spent all that time posting all that yummy healthy food, and my weight loss journey?

I’ve only gone and fallen off the wagon!

Okay, so it’s not as bad as it could have been… but ever since Easter (wow that is a while back!) I have been struggling with my willpower. Too many chocolate eggs around didn’t help… and I found myself craving the things I shouldn’t have.

If I wanted something, one wasn’t enough, I needed two. But I managed to control myself for a while longer.

But…

Since the summer holidays, OMG, I can’t stop eating!

I try so hard to be good. And I am. During the day.

But once the evening hits, I am unable to stop myself from pigging out on the stupidest of things!

As a result, I am now at the stage where I need to lose half a stone, or seven lbs to make me feel better about myself again!

Eeeeek!

But, since it’s anniversary weekend, don’t expect me to start this weekend!

Maybe I’ll be part way there by Christmas…

Now, let me get back to my chocolate fruit!

Flash Fiction Challenge – Meshed #CarrotRanch #FlashFiction @Charli_Mills

I’m taking a chance on one of Charli’s 99-word prompts over at The Carrot Ranch!

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary, and I was prompted to write something that tied with this momentous occasion when reading Charli’s prompt this week. ❤

November 16, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) use the word mesh in a story. Mesh is both an object and a verb, which you can freely explore. You can play with its sound, too. Go where the prompt leads.

Here’s my take!

Meshed
Sitting together in the backseat, our fingers met and slowly entwined. Our eyes met and a smile spread across our faces.
It had been a big day today. Emotional, but worth every tear I had shed.
After vows had been taken, congratulations had been exchanged, music and merriment, feasting and festivities had finished, the final goodbyes had started.
Looking back, I saw my family waving. Looking forward, his family held their arms open, welcoming me.
It was then I realised that there was no them and us, but two families, forever meshed together because of our love and union.

#WritePhoto – Haven

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

I thought I’d continue the adventures of Barbie and Ken!

“Red sky at night, shepherds delight. Red sky in the morning, shepherds warning. That’s what my dad always used to say,” Ken pondered. “It’s 4.30 pm now. What does it mean in the afternoon?”
“Why don’t you go and ask a shepherd, babe? I don’t know!” Barbie lifted her eyebrows and glanced over at her boyfriend, before lowering her gaze to her nails, which she had been filing with great care.
“But babe, it’s not Christmas yet. And you know the shepherds only come out then, for the nativity!”

#WRITESPIRATION #141 52 WEEKS IN 52 WORDS WEEK 46 – @sacha_black

Sacha’s #Writespiration prompt this week:

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.

Write about THE LAUNCH!

And…
Lift off!
The launch went perfectly.
Or so everyone thought.
Peter shuffled backwards, and into the crowd, allowing his shuffle turn into a sprint as soon as he was able.
Looking down at the bag in his hand once he stopped, he gulped.
Shame he’d forgotten to load the toilet paper!

http://sachablack.co.uk/2017/11/15/writespiration-141-52-weeks-in-52-words-week-46/

The Launch, because in literally a couple of days a certain lady named Ms De Black is launching her debut novel in her Eden East Trilogy, Keepers! A YA Fiction piece that promises to please fans of JK Rowling, Genevieve Cogman Trudy Canaan and the like!

She has been literally run off her feet with the organisation involved in writing and publishing a book, as well as penning writers help book, and workbook, and working, and being a fantastic mum, and being the Super Boss of the ABBA’s!!!!

So, no wonder she forgot to fill the body of the prompt post first thing this morning lol! Still, a timely reminder meant that no one went without their weekly #Writespiration fix!

Anyhow, I’ve downloaded my copy…. And you? Stop procrastinating…

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
