Saturday Centus: Family Drama Part 12


Downing her third micro-bottle of surprisingly good chardonnay, Kat realized she had about the same chance of finding Russ as the lottery ticket she'd bought being the winner.
********************
Jenny is still shaking things up for us over at "off on my tangent".  This week's Centus is a 25us.  Yup, only 25 words not including the prompt (in bold italic above).  But, I'm still managing to string them all into one story, just for the challenge of it.  Now there are some other Centusians  doing that too, so it's catching on.  Need to catch up?  Put Family Drama in my search gadget.  Only need last week's?  It's here.  Then head on over to Jenny's to link up your own, or to read the other micro-stories

Well that was seamless!~Ames

Kat said...

Brilliant! I wondered how you were going to pull this off, and once again you did it beautifully. I checked out #9, as you suggested. How funny! No we did not cook this up, guess I found someone else who has the same twisted sense of humor that I do :) Kat

great job. You have me wanting to read back so I can know who Russ is.

Judie said...

Hahaha! Again, you leave us hanging!!

Dear Tina,

Wow, you are very clever. I am starting to really enjoy seeing how you tackle this and
cheering you on.

You should write a novel. If you can create a plot line with all of these crazy prompts, you should be able to write a book where you have the freedom of inventing without these crazy restrictions. Your SC-posts show your inventiveness. I think you could do it.

Use your material. You can take what you have written and rewrite it and make it more of a logical whole, develop the strong parts, delete the weak ones.

Hugs (Kram),
Anna

Well, a good man is hard to find!

It is amazing that talented writers can create an entire story with only 25 words. Great Job!

You continue to amaze me with your seamless segues from week to week! And this week you accomplished it with ONE sentence. Kudos!

Looking forward to next week..........cj

I am feeling glad for Kat that, at least, the Chardonnay was surprisingly good. You have a way of pulling us right into the scene. Very nice.

Well done, Tina! Anyone can write some sort of Centus with the hundred word rule, but to tie them all together and to write something that good in 25 words is remarkable!!

Terra said...

Clever none the less and cute too....oh life can smack us in the face sometimes can't it, I hope she finds something she is looking for.

Viki said...

I see you're still continuing. I need to go find out what happened last week LOL. This one seemed pretty effortless for you. Good job.

Monkey Man said...

Very nice. Try 25 words being 160 characters and you have both a Sunday 160 and Centus.

Tina said...

awww double sorrow. at least she has her chardonay for comfort!

RockiBottom said...

you are a total rock-star when it comes to making the obscure fit your story!

Jenny said...

Rockibottom said it best. You are a rockstar. And I know you'll find the sci-fi prompt wayyyy too easy for your continuing saga. I promise I will try to make it more of a challenge for you...mwahahahahahahahaha!

Clever, clever continuation of your amazing story.

Can I have your autograph, please?
