Mining My Own Material ;)


In Writing 101 our assignment was: Can you dig through your online treasures and build upon old stories and existing writing? Take a peek in the drafts section of your dashboard. Can you use unpublished copy in a new way? So, I found this daily prompt that I started and have yet to finish called “Mouth Drop” where we were asked: 

In exactly 100 words creatively describe one moment when your mouth dropped open, chin hit the ground, and tears rolled down your face (figuratively or not). If you prefer to develop this into a longer post, that’s fine too!.

The moment my mouth dropped was March 1st of 2014 at 2pm to be exact. My dragon and i went to get our car oil change and just a tune up. She needed a little more work than expected. About $1500 in repairs. So, my dragon said I’ll just trade it for a new car. My dragon told me to pick one i liked. I did. As we were with the salesman he told him to put the car on my name and then paid the full amount in cash. I think he was offended when they asked, “How much you want to put down? How much can you pay per month “

Needless to say, Mouth Dropped

  3. I like the expression, “Mining My Own Material”! Hey, I’m a little lost…Is the “dragon” another name for your car? I had trouble following who said what. i think the use of a noun here and there instead of just pronouns would make the story line easier to understand. Word count stories sure are fun, aren’t they!
