Friday Fictioneers ~~ Jan 10, 2014

Hello People! Today is Friday! You all know what that means. Friday Fictioneer time!

For those that might not know what Friday Fictioneers are, let me tell you. This is a great group of people who write flash fiction (100 words) based on one photo that is generously provided by one of us. Rochelle Wisoff-Fields is our hostess every week. We have a few rules we try to follow, which can be found on Rochelle’s blog Addicted to Purple. If you are interested in joining us, please do! Or if you are interested in reading the many and various stories, again click on Rochelle’s name, scroll down till you meet the little blue guy and click on him. That will take you to all the great stories based from the same picture.


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.

“Isn’t the water beautiful Margaret?”

“Sure is Bart. We’ve been walking a long time, is it much farther?”

“Shouldn’t be too far. Just look at that sky!”

“That cloud reminds me of a dragon! Look Bart!”

“I see it, Margaret.”

” I’m so glad we took this vacation. Just what we needed, Bart.”

“I know my dear. After the year we had, we deserve some down time.”

“Are we close yet Bart?”

“I think I see it up ahead Margaret!”

“Thank goodness!”

“Here you go! Not exactly the stairway to Heaven, is it?”

“It is when you have a full bladder!”

  1. Awesome! I can tell the characters apart well, even without the use of their names. The last line was the best! And I see dragons in the clouds all the time! Lol


  2. Hahaha! Clever and witty finale, Jackie! I wasn’t sure whether to tell people it’s a bathroom… could have left it a mystery, but then we wouldn’t have this funny, well written story! Love it!


  3. Dear Jackie,

    Nothing says aaaaaaah like a well needed bathroom to a full bladder. Funny! Glad I wasn’t drinking anything when I got to the last line.




  4. As slow as I move and with problems with stairs that would be me in the last line. Did you play the cloud game when young? I did it was the best way to pass the hours traveling to imagine what the clouds looked like.
