If you want to give yourself an added challenge (optional, and not part of the judging criteria), see if you can write the story in your own genre (eg if you’re a horror writer, write a horror story; a romance writer, a romance story, etc).
Once you’ve posted your Challenge post on your blog, pop back here and link directly to it in the linky tool below (make sure you include the direct link to that post, not just the link to your blog!).
Entries in the Second Crusader Challenge will close next Friday, March 25th (at 11.59pm EST), so make sure you get your post in the linky link before then!
|Dash the goldfish as Goldie|
The goldfish bowl teetered. Goldie swam to one end. His tail propelled him forward before his head struck the plastic again. It tumbled over.
The bowl didn’t shatter but cracked along one side; the top skidded along the floor. Water leaked onto the tiles. Goldie leaped from his prison.
Victory over the humans would be his. Freedom never tasted so sweet to the goldfish.
He didn’t see the furry swish of the cat’s tail. By the time he felt the feather-light paws, it was too late.
Stripes pounced, trapping the goldfish. Mouth wide, he swallowed Goldie whole.
