Flash Fiction Challenge

Feeling a little creative today? Well let your fingers do the talking then. A few weeks ago I told you of my interest (some might call it weird fascination) with discarded till receipts in shops. I would look at them and then imagine the life of the person who had made the relevant purchase. What sort of day were they having? Where were they headed? And with who? To do what?

The last challenge provoked some great pieces of writing and I hope todays will as well. Apologies for the tatty receipt. It has been living the back pocket of my jeans for a few days now. I know. Gross. But for those struggling to read it the person in question bought:

  • 1 packet of Fox’s Glacier Mints
  • 24 pack of Diet Coke (cans)
  • £20 of diesel (gasoline)
  • Hmmmmm. Interesting. Looks like someone was planning a road trip. And a man or woman after my own heart regarding their love of Diet Coke. And as for the mints? Well, somebody wanted to freshen up their breath for some reason. The plot thickens? Have I got your creative juices flowing? Are you up for the challenge. There are no rules. All I ask is you give this blog a shout out in your related post.
  • Your pieces can be as long or short as you want and I’ll reblog the best ones. Let me know what you think. Happy writing!
  • Are you up for today’s flash fiction challenge?

    1. Oh I’m so glad you did another one of these challenges! I kept meaning to do the last challenge but it got pushed to the side! Now I have another shot to procrastinate haha. No, no, I’ll make time. Hopefully…Short stories are my specialty, I never finish the long ones 😜

            1. It’s slow moving. Partly because I’m actually writing three books at once. I need to just commit to one of them but all three ideas cane to me at different times and season of life, and I like them all!! When I do find time to work on one of them, the words and ideas flow…but I’m to the point that I don’t even bother sitting down if I know I have only an half an hour, as I barely get started and then my thoughts are interrupted. When I write in short time blocks I see a choppiness in my work that wouldn’t be there if I would really take the time to let the words flow. I know I can go back and change these things, but I prefer the uninterrupted flow 😊 Thanks for asking!
