Friday Fictioneers ~ Nov. 9

Copyright – Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

 If this is your first go at Friday Fictioneers, here’s how it works:

Every Friday authors from around the world gather here to share their 100-words and offer constructive crit and encouragement to each other. This creates a wonderful opportunity for free reading of very fresh fiction! Readers are encouraged to comment as well.  A thank you  to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting and for  this weeks picture.

Here is my story:


Teri looked at the frosted window pane with her artist’s eye. To be able to  take what mother nature provided for a muse this cold winter day and paint it on canvas would prove to be challenging. Challenges she was not afraid of. She looked again at each unique ice crystal upon the window and smiled. To Teri it was like looking at each individual she knew. So different yet so wonderful in each their own way. As she was also. She picked her paintbrush up with her toes and delicately dipped it in the paint and then lightly touched the canvas.

  1. An interesting twist at the end there — I almost think you could leave out the line “As she was also” to heighten the impact of it and give us a sense of how she values the differences in others. On the other hand, “Challenges she was not afraid of,” was expert foreshadowing — great job!


  2. A nice subtle twist at the end. I’d like to have had maybe a bit more about Teri’s disability and less about the ice. But there’s the rub. 100 words do limit. A unique take on the prompt nonetheless.


  3. I am going to agree with Brian on this one..”as she was also” gave it away for me and it was at that point I knew she had no arms or use of her arms. An inspiring story and a nice piece of writing on the whole.
