Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts Friday Fictioneers where we’re challenged to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words, more or less, based on the picture above. It is awesome, in this blogging community, to see the many different responses that are generated from one prompt or photo. I encourage you to create your own and click the InLinkz button to add it to the Friday Fictioneers responses! While you’re at it, go to Rochelle’s link above and check out some of the other Friday Fictioneers’ responses!
