I heard an interview with Lord Jeffrey Archer about a 100 word story challenge. Complete stories with beginning, middle, and end. Thinking of running one at Mythic Scribes in December, with Amazon gift card as a prize. What do you all think of trying to condense a complete story into 100 words?

Finally watched Logan last night. Good movie. Daphne Keen was wonderful.

Saw a group of little girls all with Wonder Woman dolls. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

People being bullies 

My daughter, in college, started new job today working with people in a home who can't care for themselves. Fairly high-functioning but need help cooking, cleaning, some self-care, and making sure all runs smoothly at the home. She takes them to the bank because they have accounts. Guy in line starts loudly taunting them, calling them "retards." She is so angry, on verge of tears, but not wanting to respond for fear of further upsetting her charges. What do you do? :(

Currently reading Shirley Hazzard's The Transit of Venus. Let me just say...wow! Phenomenal writing.
