The sun is shining. The thermometer is thinking about kissing 60 degrees. And for the second week in a row, we have a Janet contest.
In honor of the imminent release of Writing Without Rules by one of her authors, Jeff Somers
she challenged us to craft 100-word stories using:
I came up with "Against The Lawn" literally in my sleep yesterday morning.
Susa was livid, though limited.
“Your hoor, this ma stole all my ehs. I ca’t eve say it anymore.” She punctuated her pathos with a plaintiff plea of “Please!”
Cases in the Alphabellate Court can be tricky, often turning on some obscure rule or twisted tenetcality. Susa stumbled into the latter.
“He should face a firig squad. Or a canon.”
A collective gasp sucked the air from the courtroom, and her argument. My smirk turned to face the judge.
“You see, your honor. Reg ipsa loquitur. I didn't steal them all. I borrowed a few. That's not against the lawn.”
Kinda different. But when the theme with without rules, well...
So what is your favorite rule to break?
