Here we are again this week observing and finding a solution to a virtual lake choked with virtual plants. Our hostess this week and every week is the gracious and talented artist and author, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We’re the Friday Fictioneers, and our challenge this week and every week is to each write an original story with no more than 100 words. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and follow the picture prompt provided for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Erin Leary. Thanks, Erin.
