A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in Sammi’s Comment Section
Once more the word prompt took me to a personal place. I’ve used this very word to describe the following story. 93 words, not counting the title. Dedicated to a very dear friend who had a hand in my being alive to write this story.
HIS SUCCESS STORY
One would think a book signing at Barnes and Noble would be a guaranteed success. Right? Of course, right!
Few patrons stopped to chat. I signed some of my three-hundred-page masterpieces with “Shalom, Rochelle.”
Then my former therapist, who saw me through my darkest days, showed up.
I threw my arms around him. “Wayne, you came!”
He beamed like a proud father. “How could I not?”
Four months later I learned of his passing.
In a single moment, my perception of that Saturday evening went from “abysmal failure” to “cherished memory”.
Wayne’s the one in the Hawaiian shirt.
