Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts the flash fiction challenge called

Friday Fictioneers!

Take the challenge to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words using the weekly picture prompt.


 

“Dad! Where are you?” I call through the house.

Simultaneously feeling chilled, by a draught even though the window is shut.

I’m motionless, caught in stride. Not believing the image I see.

A shadow of an old man.

My chest tight, my breath visible in the summer heat.

Tightness wrapping around my body and squeezing the air out my lungs.

But no one is there.

Just a darkness.

“There you are! Look, Claire! Found at the building site! I bet they hold some history!” Dad stands in front of me looking at his feet.

Walking in a dead man’s shoes!

 

Genre – Horror (100 words)

NaNoWriMo Has Taken Over!

Yes! It is the month of preparation for this years  NaNoWriMo!

I’ve been absent from the blogging world for more than a week and I’m missing the daily updates and interaction. I guess it is my own fault as I’ve been preoccupied with preparation but I shouldn’t have neglected my followers! So apologies to you all!

So my news is that I am most definitely joining in with the thousands of other people who are going to write a 50’000 word novel in the month of November. I have no idea how I will fit in my 1’667 word count per day but I know I will be giving it a good go!

During the month of November, I will do weekly updates on how the process is going and whether I’m on target for my word count! That is a whole achievement in itself let alone actually winning!

If you want to know more about National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) please do ask. I do not know everything but I can at least try to answer any questions you may have.

Are you taking part? Have you done it before and most importantly what tips do you have for a first timer?
