Another week and another Friday Fictioneers! My wife suggested the topic for me this week and it was fun to try something a little different.
Friday Fictioneers is a weekly flash fiction challenge posted by Madison Woods on her blog. Every Wednesday, writers from all over the blogosphere write a 100 word flash fiction piece based on a photo Madison selects. They post a link on the Comments section of Madison’s post every Friday, and people read and comment on each other’s work. It’s a great way to practice writing, get feedback from other writers and also read some really neat stories.
I encourage constructive criticism, so let me know what you like and don’t like about my story. Photo prompt is below; story follows.
My world used to be pretty small.
A cage a few paces long
filled with the sound of pitbulls
from across the aisle.
But things are different now I got
the litter cakes off my feet
and there’s a little door with a flap
that leads to a place where there is no roof
and I’m a whole lot bigger now.
So here’s my plan
I’m gonna sit under this leafy thing
for a minute or two and then you know what
I just might step on out.
