Every Friday authors from around the world gather at the virtual fireside of fellow blogger Rochelle Wisoff to share flash fiction stories of 100 words, all prompted by a common photograph, and exchange constructive criticism. Readers’ comments are also welcome.
This week’s photo prompt has been provided by Beth Carter whose blog Beth’s Banter is about writing, marketing, motherhood, timely topics and random thoughts. I write children’s picture books, women’s fiction, contemporary romance, romantic suspense, six-word memoirs, short stories and haiku. Beth took a first prize with this photo at the Ozarks Writers League photo contest in February. Congratulations!
Here’s the story that Beth’s photo inspired:
The Last Road Trip
Sure she breathes! Though it sounds like Siberian throat singing.
She’s just your everyday girl, though the boy next door avoids her.
Built her with my own hands, though I had to pay two men at night for some of her parts.
“I’m yours, baby,” sang Ray.
“Hotter than July,” sang Stevie.
“Let’s take the long way around the world,” sang Ronnie.
“Love at first sight,” they joked.
She fitted right in with those hot rods in Bonneville.
She took to disappearing. There’s news of a hit’n run.
We’re heading for the mountains: me, her, Ray, Ronnie and Stevie.
