September 2011 Blog Chain

Starting Date: Thursday September 8, 2011
Open to all forum members, even after it starts!

This month’s prompt: A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words

You have two choices this month:

Option 1: Respond to the default picture.
Write a brief response to this picture: Nighthawks (1942) by Edward Hopper.

Option 2: Respond to your own picture.
The default not doing anything for you? Choose your own picture! You must include a link to the picture in your post. Please, no overly violent, sexual, or otherwise NSFW pictures. Let’s keep this PG-13/15 certificate, okay?

Simply post in this thread to join. Each post should be less than 1000 words if possible. Read and comment on other participants’ posts if you possibly can–they’ll be doing the same for you!

Frank gripped the steering wheel, “Are you sure it’s her?”

“Yeah, I’m sure,” said Al through clenched teeth. The tip of Al’s cigar flared. “That’s her all right and she is a Red as her dress.”

Frank   adjusted his wire frames, “If that’s the case then maybe we should call in the Feds.”

“I ain’t going to have Hoover’s Girly Men interfere with my case. This is our turf and she is our collar,” spat Al.

“And is that Murphy sitting with her?”

Al squinted, “Yeah, that looks like Murphy.” He pulled out a snub nosed .38 revolver from his shoulder holster, checked the  cylinder and put it back, “I always knew that Murphy was soft when it came to dames. If he gets in our way, well I got six answers for him. He payed the check. Get ready to follow them.”

“Okay Al.”

  8. Murphy, great gumshoe name! Murph. It’s funny how you haven’t described Frank and Al and yet I have a very vivid picture of a hulking, overweight Al and a rail thin, bookish Frank.

    Again, some great dialogue!

  9. I can just see them sitting there watching her, especially Al with the tip of his cigar. 🙂

  13. Perfectly gangster, from the snub .38 to the banter. Even though this isn’t a continuation of the earlier entries, it seems that the red still stands for communism!
