Lite-bites – It’s that time of the year


Midges in February?  Surely not?

Remember, the challenge in Friday Flash Fiction stories (link at the bottom) is to write a story in one hundred words or less.  Not prose, but a proper story with a beginning, middle and end.  Some of my fellow authors who publish on the site do wonders, and in writing these stories, and it teaches you brevity.  For details on how to submit your stories, scroll down, but first, your lite-bite for this week.

Midges in February

“Ow!” David slapped his neck.

“What’s up?” asked James.  “It’s February, so hardly midges season.”

“Dunno.”  David slapped his cheek.  “Let’s get a pint.”

“Hey, Tracy’s really keen on you.  Wocher reckon?”

“Naw… damned.”  He slapped his shoulder.  “Not my type.  Know what I mean?”

“C’mon!  Wanna spend another Valentine alone?  Anyway, she’s coming in with Sharon tonight – there they are!”

David slapped his chest.  “Actually… she’s OK.”  He smiled but didn’t notice a tiny, winged creature zoom around his chest to take another shot.

“’Bout time,” muttered the cherub, firing off another arrow.  “That’s him sorted for Valentine’s.”

Friday Flash Fiction

Friday Flash Fiction, a great site for micro-fiction, sets us a weekly challenge, to write a story in 100 words or less. I generally manage to rise to my weekly challenge, and I’ve started to produce a piece of work every week again.  Last week’s story was called The Altercation.

Why don’t you give it a go and submit a story?  Only a hundred words maximum, but do make sure it is no more than that.
