If you missed last week’s episode, you missed a great one. You can watch the replay here.
As always, the ladies of the podcast created some great pieces of writing from this sprint prompt. This week, the prompt was: Autumn Traditions. We really enjoyed Rhonda’s take on the prompt, and we think you will as well! Enjoy, and make sure you reach out to her to let her know you want her to finish this story!
Marcy crept up behind Cheryl, stepping gingerly to avoid giving herself away by the crunching of leaves. She slipped into a spot next to Cheryl and placed the warm mug on the rail in front of her. The fragrant steam formed a cloud around Cheryl’s head. She coughed sharply, then continued coughing obnoxiously.
“Now, why did you have to go and ruin this beautiful scene?” In her best Vanna White, she swept her arms to encompass the view before them. The colors in the valley below them were so vibrant they could have been alive. A long time ago, someone said that certain drugs make colors speak to them. Cheryl wondered if it was similar to what she was experiencing right now. Michigan might not have mountains like the west does, but there is no way the Rockies could compete with the Upper Penninsula in the fall. No way, Cheryl had insisted.
Cheryl looked at the mug in front of her, then at Marcy’s. “Excuse me, but why does your mug have hot apple cider and mine has…”Cheryl paused to take another whiff in the mug. “Is that PSL?” Each initial was emphasized with what could have been considered disgust.
“Well, you said you hadn’t tried it yet…” Marcy seemed to realize her mistake and was shrinking away from the railing.
