Ralphie thought it all felt like an episode of The Chicago Code as he and Max cautiously followed the officer out the door and down the hall to the stairwell. She had her gun drawn, a grim, stoic look on her face, and moved with trained fluidity. Contrastingly, it was all Ralphie could do not to trip over his own feet.
Max followed a bit too closely, his head swiveling nervously, hissing into Ralphie’s ear. “This is such a mistake. We’ll be sitting ducks going down the stairs!”
“Are you kidding?” Ralphie whispered, breathlessly, in reply. “This is fucking brilliant!”
This is my response to this week’s 100 Word Song Challenge from Lance, Leroy, and Linda, Elvis Costello’s wonderful “Brilliant Mistake.”
Well, it’s December, and you know what that means! No, not Christmas, it’s time for NaBloPoMo again! Seriously, thanks to inspiration from BlogHer I’m going to give this a shot again this month. Last month I finished with 30 posts in 30 days, though I had to do a little catch up at the end due to missing a couple of posts along the way. Maybe this month I can pass the willpower test and get one in every calendar day.
I plan to work hard to represent myself each day in December and finish off the year with a bang. I’ll be back tomorrow, and every day after that 😉
I was reminded by the awesome Studio30Plus (via their Facebook page) that November, aside from being some other crazy writers event month (more on that in another post,) is also National Blog Posting Month!
30 posts in 30 days. Really, what else do I have to do? No excuses. Get it done. Because it’s fun and because I can. No really, I can. What? You don’t believe me? You say there’s no way I can write a novel, work, have a personal life, be a dad, help coordinate the Studio Features, post on my blog every day in November AND have like, three or four Thanksgivings due to friends and a multi-faceted family?
To you doubters I say, “watch me.” Rawr.
