Hey, fellow writers, here’s a new blog hop to get the creative juices flowing. Each Wednesday I’ll post a sentence to start the ‘Ninety Nine‘ story off, and then anyone can join in and finish it so that the story has a total of 99 words. Some Ninety Nines will be more difficult to finish than others. Please keep it reasonably clean. Thanks.
Here’s the first sentence…
She climbed into the hot air balloon, glad that she had written and signed her will.
Here’s my effort, and I’ll look forward to reading yours:
She climbed into the hot air balloon, glad that she had written and signed her will. She had put off her son Joe’s Buy- a-Gift trip for her fiftieth birthday for as long as she could, but with the good August weather she could not hold out any longer.
Heat from the burners caused yet another hot flush and made her cling to the edge of the basket. With the anchor cable disconnected, the balloon began to rise. She gave a feeble wave to Joe, took a deep breath, and decided to enjoy briefly being one with the birds.
Click on the button below to join your blog to this one, and try to comment on at least two stories. I’ll schedule another two Ninety Nines for when I’m away, but it’s going to be a while before I can read your contributions.
