I’ve been back from vacation for a week, and I’m still having all sorts of problems with my blog– namely uploading photos. It’s enough to just set my head to spinning and has left me unable to post what I want to post. Due to a serious of challenging events, I happen to be up at 2:30am today, and get to be at the front of the line for a change… there’s always a bright side!
Thank goodness for Friday Fictioneers, to sweep me away to the world of flash fiction! Each week, our fearless leader, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields encourages writers from all around the globe to write a 100-word story, with a beginning, middle and end, in response to a photo prompt. This week our prompt comes from Douglas MacIlroy. Mahalo, Doug! Doug’s work inspired me to try my hand at some (soft) fan fiction. Please stop by Rochelle’s blog, Addicted to Purple, to read the other stories, and join in the magic. Somehow, the FF photos have been the only photos I can upload, for several weeks now!
(100 words, exactly)
“What manner of sorcery now!”
Glinda wiped the glitter from her eyes, as her thoughts assaulted her.
Their once predictably happy lives had weathered too many dramas and ambushes, from Witches, false Wizards and well-intentioned Kansans; the Munchkins were collectively exhausted as they huddled in terror.
Davina the beloved hat maker’s lifeless legs lay twisted beneath the walls of her shop. The creature stood victoriously over her body.
Phil Johnson stood paralyzed. When he snuck into the backroom of Professor Marvel’s Curiosity Shop, in Peoria, Illinois and tried on the antique diving helmet, this was the last thing he expected.
