July Challenge: Under 100

Recommended Posts

Welcome to July! Sorry this is late going up, yesterday was my countries national holiday so I was offline and out in the sun with my family all day!

 

This month's Challenge is to stay Under 100. This could be Under 100 words for story or Under $100 dollars for a craft (which yes, I know is usually pretty easy, but hey, you'll get it done). It can be anything you want to it to be, so be sure to say what your goal was when you post your finished work.

 

Good Luck Everyone!

I just wrote this. It's a look at the theme in two ways. 99 words.

 

 

 

He hit the 99th opponent square in the jaw, shattering the bone and teeth. The thrill of victory shot through him, raising his already high adrenaline.

 

One more to go, he thought, wiping his damp forehead.

 

He launched himself at the challenger as soon as the bell rang. Dodge, jab, hook. Duck, hook, upper cut.

 

I've got him, now. One more blow and it's finished.

 

Out of nowhere, the opponent sent two jabs straight to his face; he fell to the ground.

 

"GAME OVER" displayed on the screen.

 

I almost had it. I guess I'll always be under 100.

Wow! That was scary fast and really well done! Two under a hundreds in one entry! You set the bar high!

 

I hope to see more tries at it. Is anyone trying?

He he, that was really cool. I think I'm going to take it on and use under 100 notes to write a little tune, but I won't be able to post that, so I'll just tell you whether I manage it or not. XD

Good luck bard! Please let us know how it goes. And if you share your process I'd listen...just saying <.<

 

Edit: unautocorrect the nonsensical parts.

I thought about writing a story called "100 Shades of Gray" but meh, been done.

 

Then I thought about singing 99 bottles of beer on the wall, but that would take too much time.

 

So then it hit me.... it's time to Hiaku! It's under 100 words.

 

 

Morning light breaks, dawn,

Coffee brews fresh in the pot,

Still goes back to bed.

Found it online via Google. :smile: A lot of haiku are based off or accompanied by pictures, so I thought I would add one in.

Last Date (title doesn't count in the word count I hope? If not, I'm at 99 :wink: )

 

I find now that I am nervous as a girl about to see what her first kiss is like. Most of life is spent being too busy to really experience you. But I am ready now, ready to let you see all of who I am, ready to experience all of who you are. I want to taste each moment of you, of us. What is it but being together? Nothing. I’m sorry. Please hear me…

 

“It seems as if she’s trying to say something to me. Doctor?”

“I’m sorry. But she is not coming out of that coma.”

I know it's late, and that I've posted it elsewhere but... This is a sword I modelled and rendered in Modo (3D software) in about 80-90 mins... So under 100:

Why promise?

 

You promised

You promised me

The sky

The why,

Let me

Confine

My hands

Less

Than their reach

Why promise?

Why?

 

You promised

You promised me

The world

Then why

Let me

See

Nothing

Beyond

These walls

Why promise?

Why?

 

You promise

You promised me

A home

Then why,

Let these

Walls

Become

An everlasting

Prison.

Why promise?

Why?

 

You promised

You promised me

Love

Then why,

Let me

And my heart

Feel

Hate

Only hate

Why promise?

Why?

 

You promised

You promised me

A life

Then why,

Let me

Think

Of death

More than

Of life.

Why promise?

Why?

 

You promised

You promised me

Comfort

Then why,

Let me

Believe

That even

Feathers were

Cold stones

Why promise?

Why?

 

You promised

You promised me

Beauty

Then why,

Let me

See

Nothing

But

Harshness

Why promise?

Why?

 

You promised

You promised me

Truth

Then why,

Let me

And

My life

Become

A lie.

Why promise?

Why?

 

You promised

You promised me

Strength

Then why,

Let me

Feel

Like a coward

Always

Running away.

Why promise?

Why?
