Sacha is back with this week’s #Writespiration prompt!

writespiration-2017

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.
This week, include the following in your story:

“The bitch was right.”

Here goes!

She sniggered.
“Erm, Jane, you might want to lose that loo roll stuck to your shoe!”
Silly cow, always trying to show me up.
Not this time.
I walked into the meeting room and smiled at the board of directors.
They looked at me.
I looked down
Damn, the bitch was right!

‘Everything Works Out in the End’-FFF 39 #FlashFictionForay

Matt The Book Blogger’s prompt for this week’s #FlashFictionForay.

This week’s edition will be on (drumroll please)… Kodaline’s Everything Works Out in the End. Feel free to base responses of anything to do with the song, I always enjoy any different takes!

It’s a song I hadn’t heard before, but here’s my take!

100 words of crazy, as usual!

Meet Bob, my fiancé.
And that’s Jill, my Maid of Honour.
Yes they are walking up the aisle.
Together.
Rewind to three hours ago.
I was having a breakdown.
It had dawned on me that it was Jim I loved, not Bob.
Jim, the Best Man.
Jill’s boyfriend.
Confused?
So was I!
And I was meant to be getting married TODAY!
Then Bob went all gooey eyed looking at Jill.
And she looked at him the same.
So we swapped places today.
Jim squeezed my hand.
Everything works out in the end, they say … I guess they were right.

Shore #writephoto

Sue’s prompt this week for #writephoto.

 

“I’m sure that was the way they told me to go!” Dozy Derek scratched his head. Looking around he realised he had near enough sculpted a new shoreline for the town!

“They told me to clear the pathway for the big guns, so they could lay the road to the new HQ.” He sat there puzzling at the set of directions, and the map that he had been handed.

Slowly, as if a small spark had ignited in his brain, the fog within cleared. he turned the map around.

“No one told me it was this way up! Now, how do I go about rescuing my bulldozer from the sea…?”

Oh Sacha, you evil task master!!!! What have you got us doing this week??

writespiration-2017

Your challenge is to write your story using the weekly theme/prompt and write it in just 52 words…. EXACTLY, no more, no less.
Backwards.
BUT, in addition to that, I want you to write your story backwards…!

Seriously??!!

Ok, so I wasn’t sure, word for word backwards? Sentences backwards? Reflected backwards???

Here’s what I came up with, in several forms! And all 52 words!!!!!

Backwards sentences…

The discussion about changing her surname was always going to happen, but there was no way she was going from Portia Peters to bloody Portia Carr!!!!!
The marriage proposal came soon after.
It had been a few years since they started dating.
Tim stared back sullenly.
“Jeez! You’re so backwards!” Portia huffed.

Word for word backwards…

And in case that made no sense whatsoever… The original!

“Jeez! You’re so backwards!” Portia huffed.
Tim stared back sullenly.
It had been a few years since they started dating.
The marriage proposal came soon after.
The discussion about changing her surname was always going to happen, but there was no way she was going from Portia Peters to bloody Portia Carr!!!!!

OMG Sasha, that was tough!!!

‘Once Upon A Dream’-FFF 37

I am so excited that Matt The Book Blogger is back with his Flash Fiction Foray Challenge!

Neon Music Sign

For those of you who haven’t seen this challenge before, Matt chooses a song, fro which we are to gain inspiration, be it from the title, lyrics or music, and write a flash fiction piece of no more than 100 words.

(Though he is being a little lenient, if you go over he won’t bite!)

This week Matt has chosen Lana Del Ray ad Once Upon A Dream, from the recent Maleficent soundtrack.

I remember the original version, all sweetness and light… this has a haunting, almost disjointed quality about it….

And so to our Flash Fiction piece…

He watched from behind his paper… she ran about, larking with her friends. She looked exactly as he had imagined. Somehow he had to get nearer to her, let her know who he was. Getting up, he tried to saunter over towards her casually.
She was running towards him, looking behind her, and careered into him.
“Oh, sorry!” she said.
“No problem,” he replied, and smiled.
She disappeared back to her friends, but not before looking back at him.
There was something familiar about his face… she had seen him somewhere before… Or had she been dreaming again?

I hope you enjoyed it! (Matt I hope it was worth it!)
