Friday Fictioneers is hosted by the wonderful Rochelle, the undisputed master of what I call Sound Bite Fiction.
She sets the weekly challenge, the standard, and the prompt photo.
The idea, as always, is to write a story of around 100 words based on the picture below, which this week is supplied by Ted Strutz.
Click here to hear the author read his words:
I haven’t killed anyone for ages.
Thing is, of course, it’s been well nigh impossible with these months of confinement.
I needed an attestation, a written declaration of my reason for going out.
This is a small town, hardly more than a village, I can’t just pop out in deserted streets and top someone.
So I’ve been eating, sorry, I mean thinking more.
Getting a bit philosophical.
I wrote a poem about a spider.
I’ve even done some relatively funny things, had a laugh.
As far as murder goes, I might have lost my touch.
I guess time will tell.
