Waste of Time

 

Walt’s Dad had built up the tent. He had worked for three days constructing it.

That pesky hurricane had came and wiped all his hard work away. Walt’s Mum couldn’t help but joke about it. His Dad pretended at least to have a sense of humor about the whole thing.

Secretly Walt knew he was distraught. The ten-year-old spent the next few days constructing the tent again with his Dad. Only for another pesky hurricane to come.

It wasn’t a complete waste of time. Twenty-five years later, it was one of the best memories Walt had about his late father.

(Currently I am writing a book called After The Fishing Trip which is based on a previous Friday Fictioneers story I wrote called Fishing Trip (I know highly original! :-)) After I’m finished it if anyone would like a free copy to review or just enjoy (or not! :-)), I’ll put up my e-mail so you request a copy if you’re part of Friday Fictioneers and you’d like to read it. It was what I wanted to do with Black Coat too but things went wrong (in short, I forgot to back up the copy on my computer. Silly thing to do, I know! :-)) So my head is kind of in that zone of After The Fishing Trip at the moment and this story is from the perspective of one of four main characters Karl who is a budding writer and is a small section from the book. Hope you like it. :-))

Writer’s Block

 

It was the afternoon. I was hard at work with my book. Well if hard at work means three sentences. Sometimes you just don’t know what to write. I was seeing shady dealings going on in a boarded-up house in my dreams. Should I have a body in an old property of the rich family? How exactly does my protagonist find it? What would Mitch write? He would know what to write. Nate doesn’t give him enough credit. He should probably leave him but he won’t.

Anyways, I could have my protagonist knocked out in the place. I don’t know.

Friday Fictioneers: Brief Moment

 

 

 

 

Brief Moment

 

The beauty of it looked majestic from her beach home. Looking through the window she watched it swoop down like a big bird from the sky. Flowing from blue to blue. It had a certain power to it, a certain swag, like a scene out of a movie.

But soon it was back in the air. A brief moment in time. It got her thinking about time and how everything becomes a memory eventually. And this was going to be a nice memory, a story for a future dinner party. Or for many a few of them …

Friday Fictioneers: The Joy of Imagination

The Joy of Imagination

 

Watching the trains week after week became a huge moment in his childhood. The sweep of trains along the tracks, the sound of gears changing. At Christmas he would ask Santa for the latest train set in fashion, play with it for days on end, creating new routes for the trains to travel.

When he became an adult, he found his living making trains and tracks for them to travel bringing this joy to children worldwide. Allowing children to experience faraway lands like him that their parents and guardians couldn’t afford to take them to.

Friday Fictioneers: Evening Break

 

 

 

Evening Break

Eric always loved that statue or art display or whatever it was. After a hard day at work, he liked to get a hot dog. Bit of mild mustard, onion and ketchup. He’d wait by the railing before going over to the statue and sitting on the object’s seating area. He’d take out from his back pocket whatever book he was reading at the time and eat while he read and drink water because safety first like.

He’d watch the people, the cars and the occasional dog passing through the night. Then go home to the isolation of his flat.

Friday Fictioneers: Third Time Lucky

 

 

Third Time Lucky

 

That bill had come in last week. The electricity looked in doubt after Felix was laid off when the company closed down. His mother was severely disabled. His father had went ‘in search of himself’ when Felix was four. It was down to him to provide and give his mother the comfortable life she ensured he had.

He wasn’t getting anywhere. Maybe it would be third time lucky. He put the bill to the back of his mind (as far back), checked that his teeth were white in a shop window and went in the direction of his next interview.

Friday Fictioneers: Privilege

 

 

 

Privilege

 

‘It’s the biggest privilege you can get to fight for your country.’, Max’s sister said over fries and soft drinks.

‘It’s a privilege to get blown up?’

‘I’m going to enroll in the Army next year when I leave school.’, she replied, dismissing his question.

‘What?’, he asked, chip dangling from mouth.

‘Can you put your pacifist concerns and that romantic poetry you write against war to one side for one moment …’

‘It isn’t about that.’

It’s about you getting blowing to pieces in a country far from home.

She looked dream-like at the flag. He feared trouble was ahead.
