The prompt will appear at high noon on Thursday and close high noon Wednesday. (This will be Australian time)
So here’s the rules if you wish to participate –
1 Completed piece must be in multiples of 50 words – maximum of 250 words. Anything is acceptable – poetry, story, anecdote.
2 There will be a photo and a random phrase that I will take from the current book I am reading – you can use either or both
3 Please pingback and tag 50 word Thursday, so I can do a summary on the Thursday morning. You can either put your piece in the comments on this post or do a post of your own.
Love to have you participate and here is this week’s photo and phrase prompt.
Douglas Preston’s Tyrannosaur Canyon
Here’s my attempt for the week:
Even now he found it hard to comprehend but the evidence spoke for itself and as they moved away from the crowd Doug stated, “So the murdered man was a dinosaur prospector.”
His companion nodded, twisting the end of his moustache as he surveyed the discovered fossils, “It certainly appears that way but the question is, was that relevant to his death. Is there some connection?”
Doug was silent as he considered this point, “What do you think he wanted the bones for?”
“Money, I guess, there are some rich collectors out there.”
They had paused on the edge of the plains and Doug stilled, “I think there may have been another reason why he was murdered.”
“What makes you say that?”
Doug gestured towards the farmlands and his companion turned, to stare into the distance baffled, “What?”
“Don’t you see them? Look.”
“Oh indeed. Their tracks, dinosaur tracks.”
Thanks to everyone who participated last week, I’m really enjoying reading your pieces.
