We’re here again this week, gathered today in a virtual field to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for this gathering is the gracious and talented author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for us is to write a story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was supplied by Marie Gail Stratford. Thanks Marie Gail.
To read the other stories from group members, just click on the little blue frog in the blue box after clicking on the link. The link for the other stories is as follows:
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
TOO MUCH BUT, STILL NOT ENOUGH by P.S. Joshi
Frank Buford had rich land on his large farm. He was also greedy.
Every year the county took up a collection for the poor. He’d give a couple dollars so he could say he gave. Everyone knew what was happening. His silos and barns were full, and his wife was busy canning every year. He sold the rest.
One year he had a bumper harvest. He called in some workmen and commissioned them to build a couple more silos and another barn.
“I’ll make extra money.” he bragged.
After harvest, he died.
Only his wife came to the small funeral.
