Friday Fictioneers ~~ Dec 13, 2013

Ah, Friday again and Friday the 13th no less! I’ve always enjoyed Friday the 13’s, they have been pretty lucky for me (I need to remember to play the lottery today).

But for this Friday it’s also Friday Fictioneer time! Time for another 100 word challenge. So come join me to read along or to participate, either will do! Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is the hostess of course and on her blog you will find the few rules we live by (or not) and also a little blue critter you can click on that will take you to many other great writers who have posted a story based on the same picture.

Enjoy yourself!



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


Make every word count.

The boots stood on the pier in the early morning sunshine. That’s all that was left of her.

People searched for days, weeks, months and never found a trace of anything else.

It was like she was whisked into nothingness, taken right out of those boots.


The night before a multi-million dollar jewel went missing from the museum. The theft happened in the middle of the night by an expert burglar. That morning she disappeared, told her husband she was going for her usual morning hike. Nobody connected the two.

Laying in the sun, sipping a Mai Tai, she hummed, “These boots were made for walking.”







I enjoy reading, writing, and painting. I love animals and at present have one dog (Sam) and 2 cats (brother and sister, Notwen and Pouncer). I've lived in various places in the USA and now in Canada. I've always enjoyed watching life and people and have developed an appreciation for it all. My outlook is sometimes out of the normal.... but that's what makes things so interesting! I am always interested in the opinions of others. Everyone has their own outlook and it's always worthwhile to listen!

  1. You’ve got a good story here, however in my mind I had to change the order of your sentences to get a better picture of what is being told. and in doing this I also needed to tweak it a little. I love the juxtapose characteristics of your main character.


    1. Of course! Hi Frank! Glad you stopped by. Sorry if I haven’t visited lately, I am so far behind on my reading. Always a pleasure to see your name pop up.


  2. Dear Jackie,

    I wonder if her husband or the police will ever connect the two events. Of course if they do they might think she was kidnapped or killed by the jewel thief. Either way she comes out on top.

    Nice one.
