Here we are once again to show our creativity by writing original stories for the Friday Fictioneers’ weekly challenge. This challenge is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to include a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt supplied for the week. The gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, is the hostess for the challenge. The prompt this week was supplied by Roger Bultot. Thanks Roger.

For those interested in publishing their short stories, I found a great blog post with helpful information and links. The major link is as follows:

PARKIN’ SPACE  By P.S. Joshi

Matt sauntered out of the big truck stop hotel on Route 98. He spotted a crowd standing in the parking lot around his 18-wheeler.

Someone was laughing,  hard. When he pushed his way through, there was his brother John, his shoulders shaking and head thrown back. Then he noticed the truck. Vines and other growth were wound all around the front grill, trailing under the bumper, and out onto the pavement for about five feet.

“Well Matt,” John said, tears streaming down his face, “I guess that’s the last damn time you’ll argue with a landscaper about a parkin’ space.

    • Thanks Patrick. Yes, they’re brothers. John just has a better sense of humor and wasn’t the one who argued with the landscaper. There could also be a bit of sibling rivalry mixed in. I’m sure Matt won’t stay mad, and I’m glad you liked the story. 🙂 —Susan

  1. An amusing story, Susan. I think Matt is a lucky man for getting his truck done so quickly. Otherwise just getting an appointment with a landscaper can be so hard these days.
