June 20: Flash Fiction Challenge – A Wee Wait

Charli’s Carrot Ranch prompt this week:

June 20, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about having to wait. Who is waiting and what for? Think about how the wait impacts the character or the story. Go where the prompt leads!

A Wee Wait
“I know you’re desperate dear, but I’m afraid, you’ll have to wait. They’re all desperate.” Mrs Brown turned around, indicating the long line of children stretching to the end of the corridor.
“But Miss, I can’t wait!” Millie hopped from foot to foot, performing a toilet dance typical for a child, crotch clutched as if that was all holding a possible flood from occurring.
The queue moved down one.
“Just get to the back of the line, Millie.”
“I can’t.”
“Why on earth not?”
Millie looked down at the puddle slowly forming.
“Oh dear. so you really couldn’t wait!”

#WritePhoto – Waiting

Sue’s #WritePhoto Prompt this week:

It’s that time again
Can you feel the pain?
Don’t know what you gain
Crying like the rain
Still wrapped in your chains
Yet I can’t refrain
It all starts to drain
Thoughts inside my brain
And you’ve left a stain
But I’m still

This was actually a poem I wrote a couple of years back… I hope you enjoyed it.


#JusJoJan Daily Prompt – Jan. 27th/17 – Incomplete / #writephoto – Waiting

Day 27 of Linda’s #JusJoJan challenge!

The Just Jot It January 27th prompt, brought to you by Cyn of That Cynking Feeling is: “Incomplete.” Use it any way you’re inspired to. And make sure you stop by and say hi to Cyn as well! Here’s her blog: .

And I am combining it with Sue’s great #writephoto challenge!

Her prompt photo is this.


And here is my effort! A limerick trio!

There was a young knight called Ted
Who appeared to have lost his head
Though incomplete
He was always upbeat
Because he was very well bred!

He waited for love to come
But alas for Ted there was none
When it came to a kiss
No head meant a miss
And away the ladies would run!

He tried to keep out of sight
Didn’t want to give people a fright
So he stood in a corner
Like Little Jack Horner
Even though it was rather tight!

Impatient! And An Update!!


Sometime soon…
The news will come…
That my cousin’s wife
Is finally a mum!

But oh the wait
To hear some news
Boy or girl?
I sit and muse

Oh phone, please ring
Or WhatsApp, beep
I’m staring at it
Nothing, not a peep!

I think I need
To just keep busy
To stop myself getting
In such a tizzy

Baby will come
When it’s time is here
And I know that I’ll
Definitely shed a tear

My little cousin brother
Becoming a dad
I can’t quite believe it
It seems quite mad!

But still I wait
To coo over a pic
Of he or she!

They are far away in Australia… It’s baby number 1… We all know it can take time, but still, I just can’t wait!!!!!


But I Smile Anyway...
