Sarah is our host for the MLMM Saturday Mix and we have a whole new load of challenges coming up.
For this challenge, I will be using “Rory’s Story Cubes” to generate 9 random “ideas” for inclusion in your response. I use story cubes with my students at school and just like the lucky dips from our childhood, you never know what you’re going to get! You need to use a minimum of 5 cubes, or for an extra challenge, try and use all 9. The cubes can be interpreted any way you like and for your response it is your choice to use poetry or prose.Okey dokey then……….
She was running late because she’d got so engrossed in her book, she almost missed the flight!
The story was a mass of chess moves, a whodunnit of the highest order with red herrings, twists and throwaway characters coming out of every chapter. It had been hard to put down and she was waiting to see if her ‘culprit’ was the female of the iffy heritage referred to by her family as The Poison Dwarf.
Racing down to arrivals, she saw her aunt coming out of the line with her small wheeled carry on suitcase. She was now using a walking stick since her stroke the previous year, and her face lit up like a rainbow of smiles when she saw her niece holding a small posy of her favourite flowers in welcome.
My words used for the cube were:
flowers, book, late (clock), chess, rainbow, poison, flight, iffy heritage (DNA), and walking stick.
Hope you enjoyed my tale for this fun challenge!
That was so fun, I loved those cubes, they gave so much room to build your tale
I’m looking forward to the others as I love word puzzles.
I went and looked at the link hoping I could download something, but doesn’t appear so 😞
MLMM is a site that does a variety of challenges as you know, and the Saturday Mix has had a revamp. I have a link for the NY wordle if you’d like it but again it’s not a download?
I’ve gone and had a look, thanks for pointing it out to me
You are most welcome.
Some of those were harder to spot than others while reading. I got them in the ‘end’ though 🙂
Good for you!
Sounds like a great read… Glad she didn’t miss the arrival!
