A Moment on the Beach With Bella (Inspiration Monday)

The InMon Prompts:
COST OF LIVING
EARTH EATER
ORANGE JUMPSUIT
UNREAD
SECOND BEST

Stephanie has me thinking about putting these Inspiration Monday prompts into 50 words. But 50 words is so few to craft a complete thought out of, let alone a story (though she really did it well). Perhaps I can start with 100 and whittle my way down.

Here's this week's cluster of prompts in  A Moment on the Beach With Bella in at 100: 

Bella wiped a bead of sweat from her forehead as she set the unread, second best book back on her beach towel. With the cost of living soaring, she did not understand why there were not more red hump earth eater's sifting sand under the water along the long peninsula, or why the orange jumpsuit wearing prisoners were not clearing out broken glass and bits of trash that trailed along the edge of the shoreline. In her mind it was simple, there were plenty of things that needed to be done, and plenty of people that needed to be doing.

  1. A nice melding of the prompts. Funny, I spent Saturday morning working on a community beach cleaning crew, no orange jumpsuit though.

  2. Lifting books? Tsk tsk tsk, I hope Bella doesn't overexert herself. ;-)

    An amusing character sketch complete with subtle reproach.

    1. Thank you Stephanie, for taking the time to check it out. Bella should be safe, she only has a couple books with her.
