Friday Fictioneers-The Peaceful Appetite

I had nothing. No ideas. Not a clue what to write about for my Friday story. Then I came across this picture prompt for Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. I thought how perfect! My short stories have been rather long and this helped with a word count maximum. I edited this quite a few times so that was also helpful. Next…What in the world am I going to take a picture of today?


The Peaceful Appetite

‘I QUIT!’ Tabitha said grabbing her bag. There were no tears, no explanation, and no looking back. Thinking about that last day in a ruthless society, she grinned staring at her backyard for the week. She knew leaving was the right decision.
‘Mommy, are we going to tell stories tonight?’ Tabitha’s daughter asked through a toothless grin.
‘Yes, love.’ Her daughter was just an infant when she went off the grid. Now, four years old. Lucille can read, write, paint, and is an avid storyteller.
‘What’s the story for tonight?’ Tabitha asked Lucille.
‘Erm…The Peaceful Appetite.’
Tabitha started, ‘I QUIT!’

 

 

ATTENTION-No Really!

Contest Starting TODAY

I’m going to rebel a little here at work and do something I’m not supposed to (blog during non-break hours) and get this going. Earlier this month I started a poll for a contest giveaway prize and even though I didn’t get many votes I’m still going to go through with it.

After much research, there were several options for me to run the contest but none seem to fit what I was wanting to do. I do have many bloggers overseas that Amazon giveaway doesn’t allow me to ship. After doing a little more research I have come to the conclusion that I got this. To make a few things clear. I am not affiliated with any of the products that I will be giving away. You will not have to purchase or pay for anything, just a little bit of your time.

I am a fan of horror, short fiction, short stories, and micro fiction. I am doing more painting than I am writing my shorts this month due to other challenges and working on my passion project and need a little help. This could be in any genre you like, non-fiction, fiction or what strikes your fancy but there are a few things to adhere to (this helps me with time and choosing participants). So tell me a story to this photo using 150 words. Fill out and submit the entry form below by May 30. A form is also in my sidebar too. Winner will be announced May 31st. During the duration of the contest, I would like to post ya’lls awesome shorts but all the rights are yours. Good Luck, spread the word, and I can’t wait to read them.
