Wednesday's Words on a Friday



On Wednesdays, Delores, from A Feathered Nest has a meme which she calls Words for Wednesday.

She puts up a selection of six words which we then use in a short story, if we are able.
Sometimes I look at her words and nothing at all comes to  mind.

This week's words are:
1. clang
2. intrepid
3. cliff
4. buzzing
5. flash
6. broken


Here is my short story >

As Cliff danced around the controls of his spaceship, he felt just like the Doctor. The flash of lights and the buzzing of machinery indicated that all was going well.
He was fearless!   He was brave and heroic!   He was....what was that new word he had learned just last week?
In.....in.....intrepid!   That was it!   He was intrepid!
He would fly through time and space saving people just like Dr Who!
Suddenly....Clang, Clang, Clang!  the bell in the tower rang and the spell was broken.
Cliff came back to earth with a thud.
9am and classes were about to begin.
Math was first and Cliff paid close attention.

He'd be needing Math when he was a grown-up....when he started building his real spaceship.

  7. The Wicked Writer; I often say I'm not a writer, but hand me a small challenge like this and I do okay.

    Red Nomad OZ; there'll be another next Friday. And every Friday until Delores stops putting up the Wednesday words.
