Here we are again and this week we’re gathered near a large marquee, a theater box office. We’ve come together to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneer’s group. Our hostess for the gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for each of us this week and every week is to write a story with no more than 100 words, not counting the title. It’s supposed to have a beginning, middle, end, and be inspired by the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Ted Strutz. Thanks, Ted. To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link below, then on the smiling frog. Next, follow the given directions. The link for this week’s stories is as follows:

The Actor by P.S. Joshi
In her Junior year of high school, my daughter tried out for the yearly school play. That year it was “You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown,” and she played Snoopy.
A large dog house sat in stage center.
Sayjal blacked the end of her nose and wore her hair in two side ponytails for ears. Some of her time was spent sitting on top of the dog house. People loved it.
I’d never seen her so excited. She’d found her vocation, auditioned for the theater class, and was accepted.
She graduated from college with a degree in Drama.
