Oh Yeah! I’ve finally completed the challenge I had set for myself. Over the past ten weeks, I have written ten stories with word limits, starting at ten words and working up in multiples of ten each week until one hundred. I’m chuffed with what I have achieved, and I don’t think I have done a bad job with the stories that I created each week.
This post is the last of the Monday writing exercise posts. I have two other writing exercises on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and I’m scaling back due to my desperate need to plow more writing hours into my work in progress. Two is plenty to be getting on with. Mondays can be free for book reviews, musings, tip shares etc as and when the fancy takes me.

Seven earth years ago, I took her from her mother’s dead arms. Now, I have to leave her with another mother- my own. A loving, disciplined woman is what she needs, not a reckless, irresponsible, space outlaw. Not that I had much choice in the matter.
My sentence will end in five years. I know she will keep the High Diamond safe for me. My girl, the universe’s best and youngest thief.
Feel free to join in with your own one hundred word stories and let me know what you come up with.
I would like to thank everyone who has followed these writing exercises, and the wonderful comments I have received. It is a joy to know that my stories have been well received.
