Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, and the standard.
This week’s excellent photo by Jean L. Hays takes me down a predictable route.
Yep, dull as ever, what can I say.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture, below.
Although it is not yet 9 o’clock the Avenue des Alliés is pulsing with life.
I sit outside a café, enjoying orange juice and croissants in the morning sunshine.
And wondering yet again if I am the only person in France who does not drink coffee for breakfast.
As I watch people going about their daily routines, little stories form in my head.
I am, after all, a writer.
I smile as I think of the cache of passports and other tools of the trade that are hidden in my little apartment.
I can hardly write about my real job, can I?
