Every Wednesday Rundown Wisoff-Fields posts a picture prompt challenging writers to create a 100-word story, poem, or whatever works for you. After posting your work on your blog, go back to her site and add your link on her Friday Fictioneers post. Place. Page.
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.
Two children sit in a barn loft.
“Granpa Wilson demolishing this tomorrow,” he complains.
“Building a new one.”
“After all these years?” she whines. “Where we gonna play?”
“I’m staying right here. He don’t scare me.”
“He’s knocking it down ‘cause he hates us playing here.”
He drops from the loft. “He don’t even know we’re here.”
“Sure he knows,” she smiles. “Hands shaking,” she mimics. “Holding his gun when we get too loud. Let him knock it down. Ain’t chasing me away.”
Next morning, backhoes dig the foundation, then stop.
“Bones. Go get Wilson.”
