Saturday Centus time once again. This is a great little writing exercise hosted every week by the fabulous Jenny Matlock at Off On My Tangent. A simple premise, take a writing prompt provided by our lovely hostess and add 100 words or less to make a story. Sounds simple, but it's not as easy as it seems!
After the shake up last week, I was terrified that we were going to have to write a Western! But no, back to our normal program, with this week's prompt being provided by Sami.
This week's prompt:
Somewhere over the rainbow...
And my take on the prompt:
Why had I listened to the girls? A lark, they said. Totally out of character for you, the class bookworm. Worse case scenario? Feeding lines to giggling girls or a small part as a munchkin. But this? Had Mrs. M lost her mind? 30 years of trying to coax talent out of hordes of hormonal teenagers had finally pushed her over the edge!
Looking at the audience from the wings, my stomach rolled. No salvation there. A full house. Wobbling into the spotlight in those stupid red heels, I took a deep breath, closed my eyes and opened my mouth. Somewhere over the rainbow...
