Friday Fictioneers: Treasure

I pledgeAnd once again Wednesday is upon us, and with it another great picture prompt for the Friday Fictioneers 100-word writing challenge. As every week, this is again hosted by the tireless Rochelle Wisoff-Fields.

This week, I used the prompt to do a little research that was overdue anyway. I am by no means an expert on blacksmithing, but I like to have an idea of what is possible to do under difficult circumstances. I’m asking myself–being in the dystopian-world frame of mind again–do we really go back to the stone ages if our civilization breaks down for one reason or the other? What other options are there (without the Vulcans or some other Aliens coming to the rescue)? I don’t know what I would do without the internet for researching these questions. Not writing, most likely… But enough about me.

Friday Fictioneers: Empathy

I’ve been somewhat under the weather over the long weekend, and didn’t do much posting, or reviewing, sorry about that. Now that my bug has been defeated, I feel fit and eager to jump right in with another Friday Fictioneers 100 word challenge. As always, the challenge is hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields on her Addicted to Purple site.

This image spoke to me right away. I’ve been reading about the topic on the news last week and added a few links.

Friday Fictioneers: Singing The Blues

I’ve cought a bug of some kind and have been kind of brain-dead over our long weekend here. That’s why I haven’t read and reviewed many stories. I’m very sorry, will try to catch up.

This week seems to have been the week of re-blogging for me. What a good thing that it is Wednesday and time again for a new drabble for the Friday Fictioneers. This pushes me into actually writing something, and not just telling you about things I read elsewhere.

The prompt, as always, is provided by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who challenges us to write a complete story in 100 words or less with beginning, middle, and end. You can read all the stories by clicking the frog. Please show your appreciation by liking, or commenting. And if you want to join the fun, everyone is welcome.

Friday Fictioneers: 2050

I pledgeEvery Wednesday, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, the host of the Friday Fictioneers, posts a photo prompt to get our creative juices flowing. She challenges us to write a story with beginning, middle, and end in 100 words or less. Every week 100+ people from around the world accept this challenge and write funny, thoughtful, frightening or educational stories for that photo prompt. You can read all the stories by clicking the frog. Please show your appreciation by liking, or commenting. And if you want to join the fun, as I understand it, everyone is welcome.

The last few weeks, my entries were happy and up-beat. I challenged myself to try writing a bit darker. Can’t say that I completely succeeded, but it is a bit darker than usual.
