Here we are again this week. Today we’re gathered in a virtual wooded area to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers’ group. Our hostess for this gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of 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 Santoshwriter. Thanks, Santosh.
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:
Word Count: 100 Words
AWAITING THE MONSOON by P.S. Joshi
We in Pune, India, are patiently awaiting the monsoon to reach us. It’s now churning around in the Bay of Bengal. It’ll then move to the tip of India around the end of May.
If you get the BBC news on TV, you can watch it move on up the west coast. It’s supposed to reach us about the middle of June.
We’ve already had a hail storm and a couple pre-monsoon storms. Workers are still busy clearing city drains of trash, especially plastic waste. There’s already been flooding in some locations. Next come potholes.
We need reservoirs filled though.
