I’m approaching a maximum overdrive with my robot sensors and other parts this week concerning the blog. I apologize for being a day late and a few dollars short with 100 word song but a writing deadline and the release of my novel, The Ballad of Helene Troy have overwhelmed me. I can’t believe I wrote almost every day this week. Deb aka @debIsee aka Ms. Wyoming wrote more of her fantastic serial, Vivid Black this week with her 100 word song entry. It was an excellent interpretation of Rene’s choice, Billy idol’s John Wayne. I’m the last cowboy in the meme/prompt world that loves when my writing pardners serialize. It’s harder to write that way. I appreciate the talent. Leeroy asked Deb to choose this week’s tune. She went with Tom Petty’s I Won’t Back Down, from his finest CD, in my opinion, Full Moon Fever. It’s also perfect for my 100 words this week as we head back to Jake, Augusta, Violet, and Mallory in my short story, Soul To Body.
Violet and Augusta stood side-by-side in the center of the living room. Violet chewed on her upper lip. Augusta crossed her arms. Their faces burned rage that Jake had seen in his late wife, Camille. He kept his eyes on the women while addressing the controversy standing quiet in the kitchen.
“Mallory, I’d like to call rain check on tonight. I’m not feeling well and I have some things to talk about with my family. I’m sorry.”
His gaze stayed on the two sets of angry blue eyes lasered back. Mallory caressed Jake’s arm as she whispered “goodbye for now”.
As always you have one week to write 100 words inspired by the song chosen, I Won’t Back Down, by Tom Petty and Deb. Please tell a friend or fifty and link up your excellent response on the Mr. Linky provided by Leeory, below. We didn’t have a lot of responses last week. Let’s get back on track with many more. Thank you for being patient with my neuroses with the book.
