I like to blame the Easter Bunny for a lot of things. But this year he didn’t make me pack on pounds with Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs, because I didn’t have any. But he did leave us, here at 100 word song, with only 4 entries. Maybe with all of you back home and in a writing mood, we’ll at least double that, this week. We had a new participant, Christine aka @hanolsy from the fantastic writing community Yeah Write http://yeahwrite.me/ and her own award winning blog, a real writer’s paradise http://trudgingthroughfog.wordpress.com/ . If you’re not following, friending, and reading her, you’re missing out. She chose indie pop act October Project. If Peter Paul and Mary had a baby with the Mamas and the Papas and that baby grew up and to have a baby with The Tragically Hip, you’d have October Project. The harmonies are excellent and the lyrics are, too. So, this week’s 100 word song is Deep As You Go by October Project.
Silas slid spread out crumbled bills across the counter. He pulled his baseball cap down and stared out the glass door, watching Olive and Zola dance around the Cutlass.
“Son, a good woman doesn’t take you down, she builds you up. And two of them? That’s drowning in the ocean.”
Silas looked up at the middle-aged man. His scruffy face and deep brown eyes framed a content grin. Silas responded.
“That nice lady that checked me in was your wife?”
The man nodded his head and handed Silas his receipt. Silas smiled then said, walking away.
“That’s good advice, sir.”
As always you have 7 days from NOW, to write 100 words inspired by Christine’s pick of Deep As You Go by October Project.
