Every Wednesday Madison Woods posts a picture prompt to challenge writers to create a 100-word story or poem or anything that works for you. then post your work on your blog. additionally, on friday, you go back to her site and post a link to your blog entry in the comments on her Friday Fictioneers post.
I’m going to try to keep up with this, as should you. give it a shot. i prefer to stick to 100 words, but she doesn’t mind either way. not everyone has the time to sit and write, revise, edit, revise, edit, etc. until getting it down to 100 and telling everything you want to tell.
Here’s this week’s picture and my 100 words.
“What’s that, Dad?”
“A pixie, or a fairie. Not sure.”
“They’re really big!”
“Only the evil ones. The good ones could fit in your hand.”
“You ever see one?”
“No, but Mom says she did.”
“What’re those sticks on its back?”
“Not sticks. Wings.”
“They can fly?!”
“Whatta you mean could fly?”
“There are no more, Dear.”
“I guess we stopped believing.”
A pensive, sad little face.
“But I didn’t stop.”
“That’s good, Dear. There’s other sculptures over there.”
As Wendy and her father stepped away, a subtle crack sprinkled plaster crumbs to the floor.
