Another fine week of songwriting for My Blog Can Beat Up Your Blog. By songwriting I mean listening to Bonnie Raitt’s version of Richard and Linda Thompson Dimming of the Day and making something literary in just 100 words. We had a lower turnout but the quality was terrific. Help Leeroy and I spread the word and maybe we can have both Qs, quality and quanity this week. My friend Stephanie aka The Drama Mama aka @writesidemama does serialized fiction stories like I do. We are kindred spirits. Her story of Viola is really taking off. She took Dimming of the Day and put 100 words into character development with “In Time: Remorse”-
I asked Stephanie errr, Mama, to pick this week’s tune. She chose an excellent song by an amazing songwriter, John Hiatt. I think you folks can really do great things with this one.
Here’s my 100.
Previously with Violet and her mom and dad aka “Soul To Body: http://lancemyblogcanbeatupyourblog.wordpress.com/2012/02/17/leavethepieces/
White Cancun sand sifted over their feet. The evening tide crept toward their stolen hotel white towels. Her curly blonde hair jumped onto his chest as she rolled into his arms.
“You’re thinking about what happens after we leave this beach, aren’t you?”
Her dimpled cheeks conspired with her magnificent blue eyes to alter his answer.
“I just hope when I wake up from this dream, it’s not a disaster.”
Mischief formed in the corners of her smile. She nibbled his right ear before whispering.
“Have a little faith in me and I’ll make your some of dreams come true.”
I took an orphan prompt from Indieink http://forum.indieink.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=104 , a Keith Richards quote- “I just hope when I wake up from this dream, it’s not a disaster.” You can find the rest of Soul To Body, so far, here: http://lancemyblogcanbeatupyourblog.wordpress.com/soul-to-body/
Here’s the great John Hiatt with Have A Little Faith In Me. Do great things with this writers and friends.
