Another twist on the 100 word challenge. This week we are to write 50 words under the theme ‘The Season’ and then later in the week, we choose someone else’s writing and add 50 words to make an ending. What a great idea! (I used to love playing ‘consequences’ as a child).
If you’d like to read others or even take part yourself, take a look at Julia’s Place http://jfb57.wordpress.com/2011/12/19/5050-word-challenge-week24/
Mine’s a bit of a tear-jerker this week, just to remind us all that ‘The Season’ isn’t always a happy time for people.
In western countries they’ll be sitting at the table now, greedily attacking the golden roast, inhaling the delicious smells of gravy and cranberry sauce. Here, grovelling in the dust, plagued by flies, the emaciated child whimpers pitifully for want of a few grains of rice and some clean, fresh water.
