    Flash Fiction Fun

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by thetyper, Jun 27, 2012.

    Hi All

    Was thinking about flash fiction:


    And it got me thinking we could have a thread on it...!:)

    So - let's make this really tough and say no more than 150 words!

    Here's mine:

    Morning Hour

    We wake an hour before dawn in our room below the furnace. The temperature outside is below freezing so the inside of the small window is coated in ice, and the pale green wall is so cold it makes me jump when I accidentally brush my shoulder against it. I can tell by her breathing that Henia is still asleep, despite the loud grinding sound of the heavy mechanical equipment in the workshop above gearing up for another day of hard labour. For a long time, I keep my eyes tightly shut, not wanting to see the room where we have lived since we were born, not wanting to face the reality of another day, but the smell of grease from the canteen down the hall seeps through the screens and over my face like a cloud, and brings me back to life in this dreadful world.

    147 words made up just now - over to you!

    Johnny and George in the bathroom fidget. The bathroom door is closed. The two hug each other tightly.

    “It was my fault,” says Jonny.

    “Stop thinking about it. It makes things worse,” George reply.

    Johnny bites his tongue. “I won’t break another DVD again.”

    “You tell ‘em,” says George. “You go first. Since you the one who broke it.”

    George shugs Johnny and runs behind him.

    “We wouldn’t be in this mess. You the one who didn’t tell the truth. Now you get me in trouble,” says George.

    The volume of footsteps increases.

    Jonny, standing in front of him, tenses up. He Hyperventilates.

    The door swings open. Jessica holds a belt in her hand. She folds it up.

    “Who’s going first?” She asks.

    123 Words.

    This is going to be a part in my book. :)


    I could feel my face getting hotter by the second, and Chloe's face matched mine. She was the first to speak.

    Ethan's not gay, and who cares if he was? It isn't your business!"

    "It's my business when I have to deal with fags at my school. He might try to kiss me. I ain't down with that." Jerad said with a disgusted look.

    I laughed, but not because he was funny. "If I was gay, I'd never pick someone ugly as you."

    This made him angry.

    I was desperate for people to get off my back about being gay. They couldn't know my secret.

    I looked at Chloe. I did the only thing that a gay man wouldn't.

    I ran to her and kissed her on the mouth.

    That's when the whole world disappeared.

    Her lips were softer than any boy's.

    Maybe I wasn't gay after all.

    150 words :)

    There is such a thread in Word Games. It does not belong in Writing Issues.
