Wednesday's Words on a Friday
The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along and read it.
This month the words are supplied by Margaret Adamson and friend Sue, also photos by friend Bill and can be found here.
This week's words are a phrase: "Back to the drawing board" and a photo which I have included.
Here is my story:
Stan slammed the door against the wall as he entered the office, red faced and angry.
"Back to the drawing board Johnno, these plans are totally useless. Get Celia on the phone too, she needs to contact the client and find out if he actually knows where that block of land is. I've got an idea he's been scammed."
"Scammed?" said Johnno. "What have you found out?"
"Remember when he came in all excited about buying five acres along that desert road? He couldn't wait for us to start drawing up plans for his "mansion with a pool". Well, I took a drive out that way yesterday after we closed, there is no flat land on the northern side and the southern side is a sheer cliff rising up God knows how high. Here, take a look at this photo I took. The whole road is like this."
"Geez, Stan, I recognise that area. It's a Wilderness Conservation Park, there's no way anyone would ever be allowed to even buy into it, let alone build a mansion with a pool. You don't suppose there's another desert road that we don't know about?"
"No mate, this is it, the only one. Get Celia to give him a call ASAP. He's going to have to contact the police, probably won't get his deposit back. Let's not charge him for the plans, I think he's lost enough."
