An international community of blogging writers, hosted by the gracious, Rochelle, come together once a week to share their creative talents, these are the Friday Fictioneers. They are given the challenge of writing a ‘hundred word’ (roughly) flash fiction story prompted by a photo. Some use the photograph for inspiration while others use it as an illustration.
- Writers are encouraged to think outside the box.
- The story should have a beginning, a middle and an end.
- THE KEY: making every word count. As close to 100 words as possible.
If you are a writer, even an aspiring writer, have some fun this week and give them a try, tune up your writing skills and then share. Just click on the link above. This weeks photo prompt courtesy of Claire Fuller
Reading Books – That’s What You Do With Them!“Okay, so big deal, books!” ‘Yes, but these aren’t just any books. They’re special books!” “What’s so special about them?” “You don’t read them.” “What?” “I said you don’t read them. You just pick one out, hold it in both hands and if there’s a picture on the cover you think about it.” “Well that’s just stupid.” “Why would you say that?” “Because you’re supposed to read books, that’s what you do with them.” “Are you sure?” “Of course I’m sure. Otherwise what would be the point?” “What point?” “Of having books?” “I guess there’d be no point, would there?”
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed this brief conversation on the purpose of reading a book. Reading is almost at the top of the list of things I love to do – as a child and then as an adult. Encourage children and others around you to read. That’s what books are for, after all!
Have a great day.
