Day 25 of the challenge!
My theme is NIFTY NUGGETS. Little nuggets of writing based on a photo, a phrase and an object, which is designed to encourage lean, tight writing. I’m aiming for a word count of under 300 words.
Thank you to L.Diane Wolfe for providing the beautiful photo prompts. You can visit her blog to check out more pictures.
PHRASE – play havoc with
OBJECT – dice
Life became a never-ending shindig.
Dicing with danger had never been on my party list, and soon we were dubbed the rollercoaster revellers with a penchant for living on the wild side.
The initial rollercoaster craze soon passed, and was followed by white water racing and then came… bungee jumping.
Poised and waiting we’d throw caution to the wind. Ignore the many voices in your head, telling you that it is utter madness.
A twinge of doubt.
A fractional hesitation as a thousand thoughts play havoc with your mind.
Spontaneity wins the day.
An adrenaline fuelled impulse drives you.
Push everything aside and take the plunge.
Indulge in a careless disregard.
A moment of wildness, unrestrained.
Recklessness your ally in these seconds of freedom.
Terra firma rises up to meet you.
You hurtle forward to make its acquaintance.
At the last minute, you are snatched away.
