Friday Fictioneers ~ March 1

FRIDAY FICTIONEERS!

**We set a new record last week with 105 postings!**

THE CHALLENGE:

Write a one hundred word story that has a beginning, middle and end. (No one will be ostracized for going over or under the word count.)

THE KEY:

Make every word count.

Every Friday (or Wednesday, Thursday) a group of us write a little story or poem from the same picture. It’s a lot of fun, but also great practice for our writing. Why not come join us? Thanks as always to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting this great event. She does an awesome job!

Here is this weeks photo and my short story.

Genre/General Fiction (100 words)

People were such suckers, Elaine thought.  Laughing she counted  the wad of cash. Stashing it in a special lock box, Elaine walked outside. Strolling over to the car Elaine patted its rusted exterior.

She climbed through the window to get inside. Once in she settled into the ratty interior with its grocery cart seats and non-existent vinyl. The perfect look of the car pleased Elaine as she turned the key and started up its 750 horsepower racing car engine and listened to it roar to life. She had another race to win tonight and more suckers needed to lose their money.
