Three Things Challenge: PL28


Three Things Challenge: PL28

Rules from originator:

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing! 😀

Today’s prompt: nose, Alabama, sailboat

**************************

The bright Alabama sun was burning down over them hotly.

The sailboat was tossing around under that same sun and Tony’s nose was burning. He searched the boat for sunscreen to try and stop the sun from making his nose any redder. At this rate he was going to look like the famous reindeer.

Duck!

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

“I told you to clean up this mess already,” Manny said to Gloria.

“If you want it cleaned up so bad, you do it.”

Manny tossed a plate at her.

“That really did not help,” Gloria glared at him.

Surprised, she watched as Manny cleared the table and began washing the dishes.

Reena’s Rules:

FOR THE NEW ENTRANTS

There is no restriction on the format or the length of the piece. It just has to be your reflection on the prompt from the core.

Write a post on your blog, and link it up with here with a pingback, or copy-pasting the blog link in Comments.

I eagerly await your responses.

The prompt:

“That proves you are unusual,” returned the Scarecrow; “and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”
― L. Frank Baum, The Land of Oz

************************************

“Oh, scarecrow what are you blathering about now? If you only had a brain you would make more sense.” whined the cowardly lion. “Here, here,” said the tin man. “What are you two going on about now?”

The cowardly lion felt a tear drop run down his face and he ran away so no one could see him and make fun of his tears.

“How the heck should I know,” said the Scarecrow. “I don’t have any brains, so I have no idea what is going on.”

“Oh you two, I need a heart, but you don’t hear me going on and on about nothing.”

Thursday photo prompt: Sign #writephoto


Thursday photo prompt: Sign #writephoto

The Rules:

Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt.  If you know where the photo was taken, please keep it to yourself until the challenge is closed and I usually share something about the place during the round-up.

Use the image and title provided as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  on Wednesday  each week,  and link back to the promt post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly and not passionately political.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

The wizard’s Ride

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

“Quiet,” Marley hissed! “Do you want the guards to hear us?”

Jen pushed her and quietly said, “no.”

They had found a hiding place just before the park closed and were supposed to meet up with their friends at midnight at the old wizard’s castle. They were looking for the sign out front of the ride with a wizard’s hat on it, but the full moon was now sliding behind some clouds and they were having trouble seeing. She could barely read the map. Jen had forgotten to bring a flashlight and now to her dismay she could hear thunder rumbling in the distance.

“Maybe this wasn’t such a good idea,” Marley said. “We’ll need to look for a dry place to wait out the storm, not to mention the rest of the night either way.

“What’s the point of trying to sneak inside anyway,” Jen asked. “I would rather be in bed, especially now that a storm is coming.”

“Jen you are such a baby,” Marley complained. “We’re just trying to see if it can be done.”

They plodded on searching for landmarks on the map. “I think it is just ahead.” Just as the sign came into view the girls were wondering where to wait for the others when someone yelled, “Boo!” Both girls screamed and turned to run and bumped into some more of their friends.

Floodlights popped on and lit the area up. They all huddled together wondering if the guards were going to catch them. Instead they saw a figure in a wizard’s hat seemingly float out of the ride’s door. They split up and ran for the guard’s shack. They no longer cared about getting caught.

“I guess those stories of the ride being haunted were true,” Marley said, not caring who heard her.

One-Liner Wednesday – (3/13/19)


One-Liner Wednesday – (3/13/19)

*********************

Yay, my rent went down this year instead of up and that doesn’t happen every year, if ever LOL!

**********************

Rules from Linda G Hill:

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!
