100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week#43

I have to start this week with an apology. I am very embarrassed about it but have to fess up to you all. I am not able to keep up with commenting on all your posts. I have tried but in my defence the children’s 100WC has really taken off. We are getting around 500 entries each week and although I have the excellent Team100 to help me I still have a commitment there.

I have also seen a wonderful rise in the entries for the 5 Sentence Challenge which is for younger writers. That is averaging 150 each time and although it is fortnightly, there is no team backing me up with the comments there. I hope you agree that as these are our very youngest writers, I must continue to support them.

So the result is that the grown ups have missed out. However, you all comment on each others and provide great support so I’m sure that my few words are not missed. I just wanted to explain my absence and say sorry. I did get a comment that one of our contributors was not feeling the love. Do let me know if you feel the same. If you are keen for me to read your work please tweet me (@jfb57) or leave a comment below & I’ll do what I can.

Now, moving onto this week I think we need to get back to basics so the prompt is:

….The flame flickered before….

As usual you have 100 words to add to these to create a piece of writing. You can use any genre. please make sure it is suitable for a PG certificate, please link back here. You can use the badge if you like – just copy & paste this code into  HTML version of your writing box.
