One Thing Leads To Another

Every action has a reaction. The reaction is an action and there is another reaction. Think about a sequence of happenings, a string of events, a progression, or a chain reaction. Write your story where one thing leads to another.

I Speak for the Trees

photo credit: Justin Jackson
Today, tell the story of a tree. This one, or one of your choosing (home to a favorite tree house when you were a child, perhaps…or shade provider at your favorite park). What has it seen? Heard? Felt? What stories have unraveled at its very feet? Or, what’s its own story? Is it happy? Content? Ready for a change?
Let the breeze blow through your own limbs, write somethin’, and then make like a tree and “leave” it here. (Yep, there will be puns on Sundays.)

~An Act of Contrast~

If you like, write to this picture specifically, or explore an idea of contrasting, imagery extremes in your writing today. 

1. a. The act of contrasting; a setting off of dissimilar entities or objects.
b. The state of being contrasted: red berries standing in vivid contrast against the snow.

Have fun Friday-fiction-flashers!! Because everybody has a little story to tell...

Animal Antics

The main characters in your story today are animals. Perhaps they are household pets or maybe barnyard pals. They might even live in a zoo or in the wild. Develop a humorous dialog between them if you are so inclined.

Thanks to Paula for posting a picture (top) since (for reasons about which I am unsure) the originally scheduled photo didn't post.  I was away this weekend until - well, actually, until a few minutes ago, and so I just added back my prompt picture.  Sorry for the inconvenience.  But lucky you!  You get 2 prompts for the price of one.  Cheers - and keep writing!

Epigraphs to Inspire

Please use this opening line from Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's as your inspiration. 
"I am always drawn back to the places where I have lived, the houses and their neighborhoods."

The Five Senses

This is your WEDNESDAY PROMPT - It's Wednesday here in Michigan.  I'll know better next week and wait 'till after 3:00 am to post.

For my first prompt, lets write something that incorporates each of the five senses:






Lets hear it for seeing if I can feel as though I’ve prompted in good taste and not stunk up this place.

Ethan would have asked more questions, but the train slowed down and the passengers began to rise from their seats and crush toward the platforms. Angeline continued to sit, looking out the window blankly staring out at the soot covered Hamlet. She was home. She hated being here...
