Friday Fictioneers ~~ March 22

It’s Friday! It’s Friday! Hello Friday! Yeah, I love Fridays. You want to know why I love Fridays? It’s because it is Friday Fictioneer time! I know they usually start on Wednesdays, but that is only because of time differences in other parts of the world. Need to give everyone a chance right? Right!

Come read all the different stories that come about from one photograph, you will be amazed! We have very talented and creative people writing these little stories. So click on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields name (that will take you to our leader) to go and read the few tiny rules if you want to join, or scroll down on her blog and click on the cute little blue guy to read many great stories. Thanks for reading or participating.

THE CHALLENGE:

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

THE KEY:

Make every word count.

Damn rustlers. They thought they had me. Showed them I was no one trick pony!  After they forced me in that trailer, I heard them no goods talkin’ while they drove away. Was goin’ to make big money from selling me across the border.

When they stopped for the night I made my getaway! Learned how to open doors when I was just a colt. Those losers were sleepin’ off a bottle of whiskey. I walked right by ’em. Then I started runnin’, it felt good to have the wind in my mane again!

It’s thirsty business outsmartin’ rustlers.
