Here we are standing around this week at an art exhibition. It includes nets. We’ve gathered again to discuss our original stories for the week. This is the Friday Fictioneers group. Our hostess for the gathering is the talented and gracious author and artist, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The challenge for all 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 follow the picture prompt for the week. This week’s prompt was provided by Roger Bultot. Thanks, Roger.
To read the other stories by group members, just click on the link given below, then on the little blue frog in the blue box.
The link for this week’s stories is as follows:
Genre: Humor Fiction
Word Count: 100 Words
WEATHER DISTURBANCE OF 1998
I’d stopped for gas in Bluegill Lake, Ohio. An elderly man strolled up and said, “Hello, you’re a stranger. We don’t get many of those”
Having time to spare I decided to be friendly.
“Yes, you have a nice little town here.”
“Yep, but kind of boring except of course for the weather disturbance of 1998.”
I was hooked. “What happened then.
“Well, the darndest thing. The weatherman said a small tornado had hit over in Canal Falls and we got fish dropping from the sky.”
“Oh, what did you do?”
“Why we held out nets.”
