Friday Fictioneers April 4th

WELCOME TO FRIDAY FICTIONEERS!

Seize the opportunity to free your muse and allow her take you on a magic carpet ride. 

Henry David Thoreau said it best.

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.”

THE CHALLENGE:

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

THE KEY:

MAKE. EVERY. WORD. COUNT.

Stage Fright?

My stomach is in knots.  It’s been years since I trod the boards.  Will I freeze?  Will I croak?  Wrong part, I’m not Carlotta.  The house lights are down.  A few finishing touches to my makeup.  I need to get backstage.  There’s my cue.

“Think of me.  Think of me fondly,…” *

A few hours later, I am back in my mind and out of Christine’s.  They loved it. We even received a standing ovation.  And all my friends said we’d get booed off the stage in this one-horse town.  Boy, were they wrong.

* “Think of Me”, Phantom of the Opera.

Share Your World – 2014 Week 13

Share Your World – 2014 Week 13

Do you believe in extraterrestrials or life on other planets? 

What type of pet or pets do not want to have?

If you were a crayon, what color would you be?

What type of transportation would you be? Why?

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

Just another day in the life of Crimson red from planet Rouge in the Crayola System.

I just teleported to lunch with Royal Blue.  I hate it when Royal brings her rodent with her.  I don’t care that it is on a leash and is classified as a service animal.  It’s a pest.

I’m grateful for the discovery of the the rest of the races from the Federation of the United Universes.  I always knew they were out there and they sure make life more interesting.  I’m looking forward to the Unolympics on Planet Centarian in 2536.

Errands with Hermione

What do we need to do today, Hermione?

“Well, we have groceries and prescriptions on the list.  Now, since food is one of the five exceptions of Gamps’s Laws…”

Yes, we all know that we will need to go buy food, Hermione.

“But, I can just whip up those prescriptions.  You know that I was the best at potions, except when Harry was stealing his talents from the Half-Blood Prince!”
