Every Wednesday Rochelle Wisoff-Fields 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.
“Sunglasses,” old woman wheezed, “$10. Two for $15.”
“What about those?” Younger woman raising eyebrow.
“That you’re wearing.”
“No for sale,” old woman snapped.
“They’re mine.” A glow behind the dark glasses.
“Give you $50.”
The younger one noticed the glow, pulsing.
“Go away.” Old woman locked cashbox. Wrinkled hand motioned a frail boy, disassembled the tent, table swiftly.
“$200,” she offered. The partially-hidden glow increased. Boy paused.
“Finish!” she growled. Boy continued nervously.
Husband approached, confused. “$200? You nuts?”
“I’m getting those glasses.”
She headed for dark parking lot. Waited near battered truck.
