I do look forward to Fridays, well actually Wednesdays, unless your in Australia and then it’s Thursday, anyway it’s Friday Fictioneers time! Where a wonderful group of international and talented writers take part in a writing challenge. A “flash fiction” (100 words or less) piece, based on a photo prompt. If you enjoy writing I encourage you to give this one a try. Just click on the link and the hostess, the talented Rochelle will provide all the information needed.
This weeks photo prompt is:
“Do the socks match?”
“I asked if the socks matched!”
“No, I heard you. I don’t get your point of reference.”
I’m a photojournalist. After the police remove his body from your piano … player? She nods and he nods back and continues. “I’ll be doing a piece about the utterly incredible, and totally unbelievable, set of circumstances leading up to his end … in the piano … in that position!
“And the socks?” She asks, confounded.
With great wisdom, he sighs and then replies, “In life, it’s all about the little things. So do the socks match?”
(100 words) so I guess we’ll never know what the utterly incredible, totally unbelievable set of circumstances were, but we do know – the socks matched! No wait! She didn’t answer, so we can’t be sure. I guess we’ll have to use our powers of observation to deduce this. Go ahead I dare you to try not to look at the socks one more time right now!
Hope you enjoyed, thanks for stopping by, be sure and check out the other excellent flash fiction entries for this week.
