Warmup Wednesday: Superhero

Write a scene or an entire story of 100 words on the nose (no more, no fewer), inspired by this photograph.


I know what you’re thinking. Where’s my costume? Don’t all superheroes have one?  Well, yeah. Unless they got roaring drunk after mistaking some recently dumped chick sitting on a ledge as a jumper. Afterwards, we hit it off, swapping stories about our exes over Yaëgermeiser. Then we figured, hey, why not?  She was single, and so was I. Besides, I needed a break from saving the world. Who’d expect her ex to show up at her door with roses and chocolates?  And me panicking, unable to find my costume, slipped his clothes on.  Oh, the humanity!  This is so embarassing.

[100 words]

So how’s everyone doing this week?  Me, I’m doing well, though I’m nervous about my manuscript being with Swoonreads and waiting for readers to rate it – the higher the ratings, the better its chances of getting reviewed by Swoon staff, and published by Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of Macmillan.  In the meantime, that manuscript sits there for 6 months and there’s nothing I can do but wait.  So I’m asking – if you’d like to be a beta reader for some romance novel at 86K words, please click the link and check out the final (to me) manuscript for Loving Ashe.  Rate it, be honest, and maybe it’ll make it to Swoonreads desks for publication.

Anyway, hope you all are having a wonderful week so far!

P.S. So that’s where this drabble went!  This was meant to go with a drabble challenge back in January and I guess I ended scheduling it by accident.

Got something to say? Spill the beans!
