I'm finally taking the plunge and joining Jenny Matlock for her Saturday Centus. This is a themed writing meme. We are provided with a prompt, (in blue) and then write a tale using 100 words or less. This is a great creative exercise, and the talent out there is really amazing.
Make sure to visit all the links, I think you'll be pleased to find some really great voices out in blogland!
