Yeah Write #13: Rube Goldberg Retribution

I have a particular set of skills not ordinarily useful.   But give me a lying, cheating boyfriend, a crammed closet I said to clean a thousand times, and a bowling ball — and I will give you a Wilhelm Scream and broken foot.

      Haha. I wondered if anyone would notice that! FYI, I searched in vain for an image of a Krull themed bowling ball. LOL

      I must be in a mood today to have that as a thought for a story. LOL

        Moods make for great writing inspiration! Premeditated revenge is the best. I had to Google Wilhelm scream. Neat detail.

        Thank you 🙂 It’s really hard to work that scream into text and sound natural.. Always wanted to do it though. LOL

    I loved the Wilhelm Scream reference. I also love the Wilhelm Scream. It’s so evocative, and instantly recognizable. 🙂
