100-Word Challenge: Handsome and Tall!


The prompt this week is to go back to last week’s entries. You are to use the last 10 words of the post next to yours and using just 100 words create a story. It may continue from the previous one or you may like to take it in a different direction. So:

You find your entry HERE

You go to the next entry (if you were 6 you go to 7 etc.)
(I was #29, so I’m using #30 for my prompt from:  Sarah the suberbanite: What the Rabbit Was Late For.

The last 10 words were: But a flash of sun – and where did it go?

Using the last ten words as the prompt you write your piece. The prompt can be anywhere in the piece but must be complete as it was in the original.

If you didn’t take part last week, choose any entry to use the last 10 words from.

I continued again in the vein of my previous challenge.

Before Alice makes for the door, the Mad Hatter blows in. Her eyes pop. He looks like Johnny Depp; handsome and tall. Maybe he’ll take her away.

“Come, let’s not dilly-dally.”

“Where are we going?”

“You’ll see,” Johnny Mad Hatter winks and hurries out.

“No. I want to go home. Will you help me?”

“We’ve a tea party to attend.”

“Not that again,” frowns Alice, “I’ve already heard you sing.”

“Would you rather paint Easter eggs?


The table is laid as before. The teapot is hot. But a flash of sun – and where did it go?

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  6. Alice in wonderland is my all time favorite story, book, movie…even the latest one with Johnny (who is not one of my favorites, I feel compelled to add…). I love what you have done with both of these challenges.


  7. Oh Tess you took me on a fantasy journey with the luscious Johnny, could it get any better???
