Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, the best Flash Fiction in town! Check out our ring leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields’ blog, Addicted to Purple, for more details. Rochelle provides a weekly photo prompt; participants respond with a 100-word story with a beginning, middle and end. The challenge brings in writers from all over the globe, and makes for an incredibly supportive, positive writing group!
This week, I was honored to be invited by Rochelle to participate in the “My Writing Process Blog Tour. ” If you’re dying to know how I make this magic (wink wink, nod nod), check out my interview here. Since posting that, one of the agents who was considering my current novel, contacted me. Her simple email “I’m intrigued. Could you please send 20 more pages and a synopsis?” made my week! Here we strive to tell a story in 100 words, and the Finesman Agency rocked my world in 12! Fingers are crossed, making typing extra challenging. Next week, you can find out how fellow Fictioneers Adam Ickes and Helena Hann-Basquiat do what they do; stay tuned!
The End of Love
From the start it was a battle: her Orthodox family, against my “unacceptable,” Reformed Jewish background. But we loved each other.
“Damn you all!”
I clutched the simple note– a few words rendering my world empty and colorless– in my fist, and left the tape clinging to the cold metal.
My father forbids it. Don’t try to find me. It’s over.
All our plans and promises– how could she leave only a note, taped to the elevator? I believed we were stronger.
Defeated, I threw the paper in the trash and stepped out into the gray, lifeless city.
