Every Wednesday we get a new picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers, a writing challenge graciously hosted by our Fairy Blog Mother Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.
The task of the challenge 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.
Strings Still Attached
|Some people played chess in their heads when they were confined to dark spaces; he played music. Few could make the strings sing like him and oh, how they sang, in his head.|
|“They won’t dare harm me, I’m too famous,” he told his worried friends. “If people like me can’t speak up, who can?” How wrong he was. Now he was on the list.
His friends pulled some strings. They’d get him away, hidden in this crate. Only his music kept him sane, and people’s brave defiance which whispered of hope. Their growing numbers made whispers swell to roars.
I like classical music too, but this, in the video, are the type of strings I like the most and listen to while I write. Check out Joe Satriani with Flying In A Blue Dream.
