Saturday Centus 24 September Are you seriously ordering

Jenny Matlock

THIS IS A SATURDAY CENTUS POST  -  Straight from Jenny's blog "off on my tangent" and we can use up to 150 words plus the six word prompt of 
             "Are you seriously ordering another martini?" But, in dialogue could we write fiction?  We can write anything, just only in dialogue and NO pictures!

The other cool thing about this week's centus is the whole he said, she said, they said...with simple dialogue you could completely have no idea is it, he or she speaking?  Unless, you were eavesdropping!

Here's my offering

“At the rate you’re slugging those martini’s down, you’ll need a million dollars and multiple lawyers if you don’t stop now.”

“Really smarty pants, you know this because?”
“I’m already defending you on another charge!”
“Well, it’s not everyday your ex marries your best friend and you’re invited to watch.”
“It might happen on The Good Wife.”
“Oh never mind. Just draw in your horns and let’s leave this point of no return now.”
“Not on your life.  Pyrrhic victory or not, I'm staying!”
“Really, are you seriously ordering another martini?”
“How else will I have the courage to……..”

So come on now I just know you are all crazy about putting your own he said, she said, they said together, or at least reading some other ones, so go here

Ooh, this is much better than reality Tv. I'm already into the characters and want to know what's said next. Great job, Karen.

The courage to what, LOL. I could see why one would want to drink a whole lot if they were watching their ex marry their friend. Oh boy!!!

Anna said...

Is it the courage to go to the wedding of his ex?
I didn't think exes were ever invited according to all of the etiquette-books.
Clever use of the prompt.
Best wishes,

Talk about a cliffhanger! So clever what you do with these prompts. Always fun.

I. Loved. This.

It was perfect! I read it to myself and then read it out loud and the dialogue was immensely believable.

You are a writing rock star.
