Cheers Cavanaugh Blogfest
Today kicks off the the Cheers Cavanaugh Blogfest, hosted by Mark, Morgan, Stephen, and David. The prizes include a signed copy of one of Alex’s books, a recording of Alex playing guitar, and a photo of the elusive ninja himself.
We are to give back to the most giving blogger on the Internet, Alex J. Cavanaugh. That’s probably not possible in a single blogfest, but we’re going to try.
In +/- 20 words, what does Alex look like?
He looks like the very sexy Hugh Jackman. (I’ve heard there are bonus points for this!)
In +/- 20 words, who could play Alex in a documentary? (Living or dead.)
I’ll stick with Hugh Jackman. (Maybe more bonus points?)
In +/- 20 words, who does Alex remind you of?
Captain America - wholesome, genuine, humble, and willing to do anything for others.
In +/- 100 words, (excluding the title) write flash fiction using all these prompts: Cavanaugh, Ninja, IWSG, Cosbolt, Guitar
The stage lights dimmed. The crowd roared, and I added my voice to the cry. I’d waited all year for this concert. Cosbolt live!
Strobes flashed, spraying a rainbow of colors. Shadowy figures moved across the stage, keeping to the shadows as if ninjas. The crescendo around me rose several decibels in anticipation.
The strobes ceased, plunging the arena into darkness. My heart pounded in my chest. I stretched higher on my toes, determined not to miss the moment.
The bright lights dimmed and spotlights fell on the figure. Tossing back his long hair to reveal the “IWSG” logo on his chest, he stepped up to the microphone and held up his fist.
“Are you ready to rock?” Cavanaugh screamed.
I think I lost my voice that night.

For Bonus Points: In +/- 40 words, leave a comment for Mrs. Cavanaugh - thanking her for sharing
Thank you for allowing Alex to pursue his dream. He’s helped so many and made the blogging world a better place. True success is based on how many lives one touches, and Alex is the epitome of true success.

Best I could offer, Alex! Hope you enjoy today. You deserve it.
