Saturday Centus

Well, I’ve screwed this weekly writing exercise of late…I did one two weeks ago, but I forgot to link the bloody thing on Jenny’s site, so no Centusians are aware that it existed! And last week’s, I just missed entirely, because I just couldn’t think of a way to do that one without dwelling on death. So let’s see if we can’t do things right, this time! Instead of a word-based prompt, Jenny Matlock asks us to write a story in 25 words, using 5 sentences of 5 words each.

“Is that our new planet?”

“Yes, that’s it. We’re home.”

“I pictured it more blue.”

“Yeah…welcome to New Earth.”

“May it outlive the old.”

    Well, I COULD get very picky and say your second line is actually TWO sentences. But instead I'll just savor your words and smile. Well done!

    Ahh, very interesting. And says a lot in those 25 words. Nicely done and very imaginative. I like Sci Fi.

  15. Unknown says:

    Clever, and fits your ongoing theme of 'intergallectic-gloom-and-doom'.

    Hi! I'm so behind I haven't noticed anyone playing hooky. I've been doing it myself of late!

    I always enjoy your sci-fi theme.

    This one seemed especially poignant to me.
