100 Word Challenge – inspiration is you can’t use the letter D


100 Word Challenge : This week’s Challenge is brought to you by the letter – D. As in, while you write your 100 Words, you can’t use the letter D.

I am starting to write a memoir. Probably last week I was starting to research memoir books, plus write a few chapters basing it on my life. I have written other smaller bits, just placing them as non-fiction on my blog all along. Now I will not be placing the chapters on the blog since they are going in a book. A piece of non-fiction here or there is okay, just no complete chapters.

I have been working on remembering little bits of my life slowly, but surely. There’s a lot that is coming to my memory in bigger bits.

*****100 words*****

AS FAR AS I KNOW THERE ARE NO D’S

Tara’s Rules

1) I provide a one-word prompt.
2) Write anything you want using that prompt, either as inspiration or as part of your 100 Words.(That means you don’t have to actually use the prompt word, it can be implied.)
3) Your story has to be EXACTLY 100 words (because someone will ask, hyphenated words count as a single word.) This is the one rule I will be a stickler about.
4) Submit your story here as a comment, as a Facebook status, or as a blog post. (Add the specific FB status or post’s URL to the Mr. Linky list just under the prompt.)
5) If you write a blog post, please link back to this post. It makes it easier for me and the other Wordsters to find you.
6) You have one week to write your story and link up (The link stays open, so you can really submit stories whenever… this is the one rule I don’t really enforce.)

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word delicacy


100 Word Challenge (delicacy)

Hmm Good?

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Nick and his two friends were sitting down to a fancy banquet in this quaint village. They were told they were to be served a special delicacy, but it was to be a surprise.

With growling stomachs, they were looking forward to dinner. Drum rolls started and the local women brought the food out. The plate was set in front of the guys and was covered. The lid was lifted, and the guys just gaped. Held in place, by bony hands, they stared at the delicacy with dismay. It was a human tongue. They had stumbled upon a cannibal village.

PS I looked up cannibal delicacies for this one and found google had it.

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word boredom


100 Word Challenge (boredom)

Boredom!

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

Here I sit thinking. Trying to come up with a piece on boredom. I have several prompts to catch up on, but I am not really feeling it right now.

I had to clean off my computer desk looking for the piece to my cellphone that allows me to add a headset, but it wasn’t there. It was a very small piece and I was ever so careful with it for over a year, but somehow it has disappeared. I am sure it is someplace safe. Why do we always lose things from where we put them to be safe?

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word spot


100 Word Challenge (spot)

Bingo!

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

The Bingo game was about to start soon. She paid the fee for a spot at one of the tables.

She purchased her cards and she had her Bingo chips with her.

The game started. “B 1,” announced the caller followed by several more in a row. Janice yelled “BINGO!”.

The checker came over to call the numbers for confirmation. The announcer listened and then said, “Sorry, but no BINGO!”

Janice was confused.  She looked down at her card and then realized that she had moved one of the chips with the sleeve of her sweater.

NO BINGO! No prize!

100 Word Challenge (give)

The Trip

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

Mona was looking forward to her cruise to Mexico with three of her friends. Mary was giving her a ticket.

Happily, the girls chatted over the weeks leading up to the trip.

The day they were to take off, she lugged her luggage to the curb and waited for the transport to the ship. When she arrived, the other girls were ignoring her.

“What’s up Mary?”

“You have the nerve to ask me that? What about Jack?”

“What do you mean?”

“I will not give a ticket to a man-stealer. I just found a love letter from you to Jack!”

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word pink


100 Word Challenge (pink)

Pink is not one of my favorite colors unless it is pale. With the warmer weather coming it is time to start thinking flowers. It is also time for the yearly argument.

I would rather have an array of different types of purple. There are many different shades to make a colorful garden.

Off to the garden store and everyone spreads out. I quickly find the purple area and look to combine shades.

I gather my selections and meet up with the family bracing myself for all the pink.

Imagine my surprise when every selection was some shade of purple.

100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word blank


100 Word Challenge (blank)

Tilly eyed the blank canvas out of the corner of her eye. Her mind was just as blank as the canvas. She needed a subject for her next painting. She just didn’t know where she wanted to go.

She glanced over at the current novel she was reading, her mind wandering.

She decided to do a still life. She dived into it as she wanted it ready for her class showing. She finished it and covered it, not looking back.

At the unveiling there were many gasps around the room. Her painting contained blood, guns, knives, and other murder items.
