When you write fiction you have unlimited freedom and some might say power. Power can corrupt, but fortunately this amount of power is limited. In fact this particular exercise limits the freedom to 100 words. Who can tell a complete story with a beginning, middle and end? My friends that answer the Friday Fictioneers prompt each week. You will be delighted and perhaps surprised with the variety and detail of the offerings.
None of this would be possible without the efforts of our gracious hostess, Rochelle, who picks one of her collection of unique photos each week. It has become one of my favorite weekly activities. The photo nod goes to Claire Fuller this time around.
Fiction – 102 words
Cindy Lewis stared at the exterior of the church building.. She had traveled across three continents searching for clues to her heritage.
“Hello,” a person in the building greeted her at the door.
“I seek information on my family.”
“It is Reauchanbour.”
Two blinks and then a response
“Finally, you have come. Follow me.”
A third floor tower room held a chest.
Cindy opened to
find a jewel encrusted crown. She lifted it and the man motioned toward her head.
Cindy placed the crown on her head and the man bowed.
“Princess, I am here for you.”
I want to share another opportunity for those of you who love writing flash fiction. Red Dyer and Redmund Productions offer a quarterly publication that gathers 250 flash fiction stories according to a specific theme and set of words during a thirteen week time period. Right now is the fall session and several words are already in play. There is still over a month to go with this, so hop on over and try your hand: http://mommasmoneymatters.com/flash-fiction/
