Time for the Friday Fictioneers with another prompt from our Fairy Blog Mother, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
The task is to write a story: beginning, middle, and end, in 100 words or less. You can find all the Fictioneers’ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.
This week in action again: the Friday Fictioneers Concrit Subgroup.
I’ve been lagging behind with comments last week, sorry about that. Work is demanding, and NaNoWriMo is, too. But that will be the topic of another post, next week.
And now, something completely different (for me).
She has been waiting long enough.
The scream for freedom in her blood is deafening: it vibrates through her body, heats her blood, pounds in her ears. Nothing else is important.
She gets up and stretches. She feels strong and alive; she is perfect.
The cliff’s edge looks inviting. The wind is strong, it shakes her up, and for a moment she has doubts. But then she spreads her wings and jumps.
The wind is her enemy. She fights it, but soon she learns to use her wings. The wind is her friend.
She flies. She soars. She is free.
This is realistic fiction, because: http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2014/06/140628-laysan-albatross-nest-video-seabird-plastic-ocean-science/
And here is some relaxing music: Albatross by Fleetwood Mac
