Both bloggers are wonderful people. Jules has been my friend for a long time and Tiger is my daughter.

Now for today's post:

Normally I do a writing exercise on Wednesdays called: Hump Day Improvisation. I'll show a picture and ask you to write one or two sentences in the comments using the picture as inspiration.

Today's exercise is Keys...have your character do something with keys. Any genre, just keep it PG. Have fun. I'll add my sentences in the comments later tonight.

Congratulations on the followers! :)

He stared at the metal objects she'd handed him, clinking slightly as he held them up. They were so old--no one had used physical keys since the turn of the millennium.

Jules said...

First thanks for the shout out Nancy, I'm not worthy!

Being katzenjammer all she could do was stare at the keys. She knew they were hers and worked her locks but that was not the problem. She had no idea where her house had gone nor why she was wearing another's shoes.

katzenjammer: hungover, a bewilder state :)

She stormed out of the restaurant seething walking briskly for home. Approaching the door she digs into her pocket, then her handbag, he had the keys.

Debbie said...

And here I am without any creativity to do something with that wonderful photo.
Congrats on your awards.

She opened the gaily wrapped package, then stared inside. It was lovely. A small diamond key in a gold chain. She looked up at her mother misty eyed and said, "Thank you, I thought you had forgotten it was my twenty first birthday."

Nas Dean said...

And forgot to add, Congratulations on the followers!

Michael Di Gesu said...

Congrats on your growing blog family.

With a nervous twitch he dropped the keys between the crevice of two planks of wood on the front porch. "NO." he gasped. Long, tapered fingers probed the slit, searching. As he pulled, an empty ring appeared. "Now what?" he howled.

L'Aussie said...

Congrats on the new followers Nancy. All going well? And the awards too. Yes, Jules is wonderful.

"Here's the keys."
"What do I need keys for?" she smirked, walking straight through the heavy oak door.

Snicker, snicker, sorry, best I can do this early in the morning.


N. R. Williams said...

Thank you Nas, Michael and Denise. Your sentences were great and I'm thrilled you dropped by.

N. R. Williams said...

My sentences:

I rummaged through my purse. The keys were missing. I checked my desk, the nightstand, the counter top, still missing. I looked in the makeup drawer in the bathroom. Still no keys. Frustrated, I remembered taking out meat from the freezer to defrost. Sure enough, my keys were on top of the frozen vegetables.

Nas Dean said...

Oh Nancy, and it happens all the time to me! My keys on the frozen food and my glasses on my head!
