Welcome to the “Cheers, Cavanaugh BlogFest.”
Thank you to Mark Koopmans, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King and Stephen Tremp for hosting this blogfest, which runs from December 10 - 12. And thank you to Capt. Ninja Alex for being such a good sport!
So, here are my answers to these questions four:
1. In +/- 20 words, what does Alex look like? Like any good ninja, Alex is a master of disguise. One day he’s clean-shaven, with long hair, and the next he dons a straggly beard and nose prosthetic.
2. In +/- 20 words, who could play Alex in a documentary? (Living or dead.) Robin Williams from Good Will Hunting.
3. In +/- 20 words, who does Alex remind you of? Robin Williams from Good Will Hunting. He’s the lovable mentor.
4. In +/- 100 words, (excluding the title) write flash fiction using all these prompts:
Cavanaugh & the Ninja
The ninja pushed open the batwing doors and strolled into the saloon. Conversations stopped and everyone except Cavanaugh looked over. The musician in the corner put down his guitar, leaving the bar in sheer silence.
Cavanaugh continued to sip from his Cosbolt. He couldn’t hear the ninja approaching, but he could feel him—feel him drawing closer.
The sharp sound of unsheathing steel rang through the quiet saloon.
“IWSG!” a lady in a crimson dress screamed.
Cavanaugh eyed her suspiciously. She’d had more than her share of Cosbolts.
“I mean, OMG!” she said, correcting herself and flushing the color of her dress.
The ninja was now just a few steps away with his blade raised and gleaming.
“This ends now,” Cavanaugh growled, slid his hand to the revolver on his hip, and finally turned to face the masked man.
For Bonus Points:
In +/- 40 words, leave a comment for Mrs. Cavanaugh.
Thank you, Mrs. Cavanaugh, for sharing your husband with us crazy blogging folks. I’m sure it’s hard at times to pry him away from the computer, from his countless adoring friends and fans. The blogosphere wouldn’t be the same without him!
