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 fascinatingly blurry photo by Jill Wisoff made me think of happier times
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on this picture, below.
Click here to hear the writer read his words:
I know I have been out of sorts recently.
I felt lethargic.
I seemed to have lost my focus.
People were starting to comment.
Just last week, one friend, a lovely English lady, chastised me, quite gently, for my lack of activity.
I don’t know if the problem is advancing years the unsettled weather caused by our appalling treatment of our beautiful planet, or just life.
But I know what makes me feel good.
So I am out again, walking.
Walking the city streets at night.
Enjoying the sights, the sounds, the smells.
Taking it all in.
Looking for prey.
