How to Build a Hoard

Spare some change please?

What is WonHundred Word Wednesdays? It’s when a group of amazing authors and I write 100 word stories all based on the same short prompt and post them. All the variations are fun to read. In honor of the sumemr heat, I’ll be adding dragon references into my entries. Dragons make everything better. Here’s this week’s entry.

Talons grasping the strings, the dragon perked up. “Thank you! It’s not hard gathering a hoard at all.” Spreading his wings, he launched into the sky.


Now see the rest!

  1. Awesome! Just ask for the gold and you’ll have a horde in no time. Smart dragon. 🙂

  2. I love the ‘me-sized incisors’! What a clever dragon 🙂

  3. This is seriously the coolest prompt ever. You should totally write a book about it because I want to see more with that dragon!!

  4. I was in love as soon as I read “A dragon, one attempting to look sheepish.” AWESOME.
