Cheers, Cavanaugh Blogfest!

Hosted by David Powers King, Morgan Shammy, Mark Koopmans, and Stephen Tremp. I think the title speaks for itself. Here's the rules:

On Dec 10-12, answer these four questions as creatively as you'd like:

·         In +/- 20 words, what does Alex look like?
 ·        In +/- 20 words, who could play Alex in a documentary (living or dead)?
·         In +/- 20 words, who does Alex remind you of?
·         In +/- 100 words, (excluding the title) write flash fiction using all these prompts: Cavanaugh, Ninja, IWSG, Cosbolt, Guitar. 
 
- Be a Follower
- Join the Linky List
- Post your 200 word contribution (on Monday, December 10, if you would)
- Have fun!
So, what does Alex look like? From the one picture I've seen of him, I'd say Nick Carter in the 90's with his hair dyed black ;)

Who could Alex play in a documentary? Greg Ginn. I really have no idea who that is. I googled guitar players and he was in the top 100.

Who does Alex remind you of? My older brother, only nicer.


Here's my Flash Fiction, or a double haiku, however you want to think of it. 


Cavanaugh rips chords
Guitars are the ninja way of life
The music carries me away

Cosbolt’s fly, sure wings
Insecure, I-W-S-G
Friendship flies me home


Thanks for being so awesome Alex!!

Calling someone an older brother is such a great compliment-- it embodies so many wonderful qualities.
