#FridayFictioneers – Repetition – #100WordStories



Turning began as some of the hardest work she had ever done, round and round; round and round; the repetition creating soreness that seeped into bone.  ‘Creation takes skill and effort’ the wizened woman told her before leaving her with the stones; ‘skill and effort, repeating, repeating.’

Grinding the harvest into useful fodder, she sat amid the stones, turning one, then the other; the effort of gleaning something valuable honing and reshaping not only the kernels of possibility, but her self as well.  Turning, turning, muscles burning, skill and effort gleaning true.

Creation: art that blends hard work with faith.


Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge to spin a tale of exactly 100 words, graciously hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. This is my contribution.

You can add your link here: http://www.inlinkz.com/new/view.php?id=661812

Also, as part of #WritingforWriters Wednesdays.  Interested in taking part of this challenge…visit Rochelles blog for info 🙂

      1. I don’t know if you’ve tried this yet. On Rochelle’s prompt page is a link to the code. But before you get there, you need to sign in to the Inlinkz site, this is free, just create an account and log in. There’s the code, then you copy/paste that into your blog post–in HTML mode.
        If you can’t access the code, try this:

        Copy/paste in html mode into your blog post. Next time do the same, but change the number (here 661812). Each of the inlinz sites has an id number which you see in the address bar. Copy that number and put it in the right place. I use that all the time because I want my FF posts to have the same format each week. I just copy the html code and then make changes. Hope that helps.

      2. This didn’t accept the code. Let’s try again:

    1. aww that is so sweet Sue 🙂 Im certainly finding these writing challenges…well, challenging. not to mention rewarding. This one really made me THINK, because the picture didn’t speak to me straightaway.

  1. Good stuff! I have written flashers before, but 200 word ones. It’s much more difficult to do 100 word flash fiction….but it’s very educational. We learn to delete the extra words that don’t really add much but volume.

    Very nice. I’ll be back.

    1. You are so right, I am typically quite verbose, so challenging myself to a 100-word limit is tough, but I have found too that I write and then go back and am able to delete much that is not ‘necessary” 😉 Thank You for Reading 🙂 Glad you enjoyed it. (see what I mean!?) lol

      1. Bjorn, me??? I spent 4 years at ERWA writing flashers. I love them but I also like other forms of poetry, literature. LOL! I have a probably 50 of them molting on my files. The rules at ERWA was that a flasher had to be a complete story, not just a scene. I find 100 word flashers very difficult to do this….much inference in there.


Having Perused, Let Your Thoughts Show; and in Receiving them, Thank You Ever So!
