I was so sorry to miss
my writing assignment
I am glad to be back
to participate in Jenny Matlock's
What is Saturday Centus?
It is a themed writing meme.
Each Saturday, Ms. Matlock will give
a writing prompt.
if you choose to accept it...
is to write a 100 word story.
Yes, 100 words or less...
not including the "prompt words".
Oh, and the prompt words can
be used anywhere in your story!
Sounds like fun, doesn't it?
The writing prompt is good for the entire week,
so you can join in at any time!
THIS WEEK'S PROMPT:
"Did you notice Elizabeth in class this morning
and how forlorn she seemed?" Perhaps I will
write her a comforting note, I thought.
So here is my contribution
to Saturday Centus...
"Did you notice Elizabeth in class this morning and how forlorn she seemed?" Perhaps I will write her a comforting note, I thought.
"Did you see Julio's eyes? I don't think he has slept in days." Remember not to say anything if he rests his head on his desk.
"Lauren has worn the same long sleeve shirt three days in a row. I wonder what is going on at home?" Note to self...check her arms for bruises.
It was never discussed in pedagogy. I was never warned about caring. There were no courses on how to heal young, damaged souls.
"Welcome back from lunch, class. Back to work! Give me a word to describe Eudora Welty's short story."
"Don't look at Julio right now!"
