Flash fiction 55 attempt

Okay, this is my first attempt at flash fiction. I followed the ‘Writing flash fiction using bubble diagrams’ process
(http://www.essortment.com/all/microfictionsh_rlub.htm) to a T. I ‘m not thrilled with the result, but it was an interesting process to try. For what it’s worth, using this process the three elements of my ‘bottom line’ or resolution were: BAYOU, GRATITUDE, CAT. Go figure how I pulled the following out of those words!

Cindy fled, crying as snow hit the office windows. She wished she’d worn boots today.

“I just quit my job,” she told the stranger. “I don’t know what I’m doing.” The rent was due.

“Dance across the river,” he said. “Pick the highest stones and walk on water.”

He winked; she smiled. Then she danced.

  • Oh I love it! I am headed over to the essortment link to check out the “process” write (get it write – haha) now.
    I don’t know how you got that from Bayou, Gratitude and Cat either. The writers mind makes some strange and unusual connections, but who cares, it works!

  • Natasha! I love this! You’re already a pro at flash fiction. I can’t wait to see the next one.
    I’m going to go dance with Cindy.
