Flash Fiction Friday #1
Twitter has been a wonderful tool for me as a writer. I find amazing links to articles, new authors and their books, and I’ve made incredible friends. Yesterday, my friend Sarah Fox tweeted about an ant in her pool. Just a normal 140 characters tweet. An image of a SYFY horror movie flashed in my imagination complete with theme music. Those small sparks of the imagination can fuel the rest of your day!
So I wanted to start Flash Fiction Friday for other writers, readers, and maybe even the candlestick makers too! Perhaps something here will fuel your day.
The Guidelines Are Simple:
Look at the photo posted each Friday.
Remember this is flash fiction, so you just need to post a scene or a character sketch. If it grows into something larger, that is fantastic!
You have the option of posting it here in the comments section or on your blog.
If you post on your blog, please leave a link here, in the comments, so everyone can check it out.
Hope you have fun!
Here is the first photo prompt ~
Here is my FFF 🙂
Walter opened his eyes. That car accident must have knocked more than the wind out of him. His joints were stiff and heavy. How was he going to explain wrapping dad’s classic Lotus roadster around a tree? Walter couldn’t resist, it was built to go fast. There was nothing like the wind in your hair as you flew down a winding road.
The world was moving in slow motion right now. He must have conked his head into the steering wheel. There was even a hallucination of a mountainous strawberry sitting right before him. Why was it all he could think about? Vibrant red and the most enticing aroma, if he could just get to it.
Walter stretched his neck and opened his mouth. Why couldn’t he reach out and grab that darn thing? He looked down at his hands and for the first time he truly believed in karma.
