Here is the information from the site about this weeks challenge (the 100 word challenge week 32) .” Following last week’s topical slant and as it is a Leap year, this week the prompt is: …Take a Leap of Faith….
Like, last week, you don’t have to include those words in the piece. If you get to write it before midnight on Feb 29th, you may like to put a reminder for yourself to post it onFeb.29th .net as well. It is set to be the biggest blogging event of the year so don’t miss out on getting involved! You can only post on that day – 29th Feb though!
This link will close at midnight on 5th March. If you are completely confused by all this but would like to find out what it is all about, read ‘What is 100WCGU?’ which should make things a little clearer”
With the ground rules and posting information explained, here is my 100 word challenge entry! Keep in mind—it is fiction!!
Hold Your Breath
The managers arrived in Arizona for team building and headed to the barn. Mark and the guides placed odd backpacks upon each of their backs. They rode horses out to a desolate area, and hiked to the southern rim of the Grand Canyon.
“Your packs contain hang-gliders; pull the cord to open them. Get a running start. Hold your breath and take a leap of faith. The updrafts will support you as you slowly guide to the bottom. Remember, success takes courage.”….. Mark took a running start, leapt, and disappeared. I ran and…..jumped with courage into my own bright future.
