Welcome to Saturday Centus, Mrs. Jenny Matlock' writing challenge where participants write their own text to a given prompt using 100 or less words, plus the prompt, which is There's a yellow rose in Texas.
Here is my text:
Johnson, from the
Springfield Horticultural Society, had saved her
pennies for years in order to make the trip to this floral
exhibition in Holland. It was botanical Heaven for
Charlene, who walked through rows and rows of tulips
until she arrived at the roses. Passing quickly red, pink and even
dark mauve roses, her heart nearly skipped a beat when she saw the
yellow roses from all corners of the globe. The prettiest one was also
the very last one she spotted. On the label was its place of origin: Texas!
There's a yellow rose in Texas, thought Charlene and inhailed the yellow rose's fragrance.
Word count according to WordCalc: 100 + the prompt's 6 words.
Welcome to week ONE HUNDRED and four of Saturday Centus.
I actually pre-posted a prompt for today about the Wichita lineman...do you remember that song?
Mr. Jenny and I are leaving mid-week for a little Texas road trip (thus
the prompt for today) and I told him all about my brilliant idea for a
prompt this week. He paused for a moment and then said, "You know that
Wichita is in Kansas and not Texas, right?"
Of course I knew that.
Geez. As if I didn't know Glen Campbell was singing about Kansas. Geez.
Technically, there could be a Wichita, Texas, though...
But just in case there isn't...
...ummm... here's a new, improved Texas prompt...
The prompt this week is: "There's a yellow rose in Texas..." Number of words: 100 PLUS the five words of the prompt for a maximum word count of 105 Style of writing: Any Pictures: As many as you like
