Practice Makes Perfect- Friday Fictioneers Flash Fiction

I pledgeAnother week, another prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, graciously provided by 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 Fictioneersโ€™ stories when you click on the Froggy. Please read, comment, and if you like, join the fun. Everyone is welcome.

Thank you for letting me whine a bit last week. ๐Ÿ™‚

Practice Makes Perfect

Jimmy knows that I donโ€™t want to be disturbed when Iโ€™m practising but does he care? Nope, my brother wants to have fun: at my expense, at everyone elseโ€™s expense and often enough at his own.

Now heโ€™s parading in front of me, making faces and whistling. He canโ€™t wait for me to blow a fuse; it makes him laugh. I do him the favour.

Itโ€™s only a slight punch, but he flies through the room and crashes, head first, into the piano. Mum wonโ€™t be pleased.

At least now I know that my new super-strength spell works just fine.

(100 words)

        1. Don’t be sorry. ๐Ÿ™‚ My first thought was the sorcerer’s apprentice, too. But I was thinking of the original. I do know the Disney version. But googling also showed me a Gilbert and Sullivan opera… and since I have no idea how popular this is… I just asked.


  1. Great light-hearted take on the prompt, well executed. I also thought he was practising the piano until his sibling went crashing through it.

  2. That “super strength spell” is the REAL “key” to success. Ah-HA-ah-HA-ah-HA!

    “… and that’s how I got to Cleveland. But seriously, folks …”
