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.

In the Dungeon
Have you ever tried to pick a lock with a paper clip? I have, and let me tell you, it’s not as easy as the stories make it out to be.
You’re supposed to insert one straight clip to keep the cylinder in place and move the small parts with a hook. In theory. Today it just won’t work, not even with these primitive-looking locks.
You see, where I am, turning a key isn’t enough. You need magic. I have no magic. I’m just a portal jumper—and I’m getting nervous. They talked about dragons. It’s getting hot in here.
It’s been two whole months since I wrote something for the Friday Fictioneers, where did the time go? I missed you people. I can’t say I’m back because I don’t know yet. Participating is time-consuming and I’m not sure I’ll have that time on a regular basis. When I participate, I want to read and comment on the other entries. So, let’s just say, I’m back for now. I may disappear again, for a while. Sorry…
Added: It’s been so long that I forgot to add my name on the InLinkz page. Sorry, Rochelle…
