Friday Fictioneers ~~ April 5

This is going to be a super busy month for me, with packing up a house full of stuff, moving, writing, and trying to work on 2 paying jobs (in writing of course)! I don’t know if I’m coming or going but it certainly isn’t boring! Even with all this craziness I can’t miss a Friday Fictioneer! I just love doing them as they are indeed addictive.

Please join us, just click on Rochelle Wisoff-Fields name and read the few rules. We would love to have you. If you don’t want to participate and just want to read a bunch of great flash fiction then once you are on Rochelle’s page scroll down and click on the little blue guy. Either way, thanks for coming and reading!

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.

They circled the tree, gazing with awe.  Elves, fairies, pixies, trolls, a pair of unicorns. Even the dragons were represented, deep purple, scales shimmering in the fading light, golden eyes transfixed, still and beautiful the dragon laid before the tree.

The tree itself, tall, gnarly, old as time itself. Tree of all living things beautiful in its ugliness. Each knot representing a traumatic event in the world. Too many of them they all thought. Saddened they watched as another node formed. The world had forgotten its wonders and the wonders wept as the tree groaned with fresh pain.
