No long intro here, just two acknowledgements:
And a story, below.
Friday Fiction Tears
I consider Ron’s photo at some length.
It is full of intriguing possibilities.
I can write any number of stories based on it.
I feel sad.
Not because of Ron, or his photo.
But I know that too many entrants will ignore the rules, yet again.
They write serials, expecting readers to remember, or reread, last week’s offering.
They write a single story for multiple challenges, usually doing justice to none.
They lack courtesy, do not properly acknowledge the photographer.
Some do not even acknowledge our hostess.
C’mon, folks, play the game here.
A 100-word standalone story.
And be nice!
