I’ve decided to have a go at writing in a flash fiction challenge.
What is flash fiction? Well, it’s a story that usually has less than 1000 words. This particular flash fiction challenge comes from ‘The Art of Writing‘, a blog run by Tobias Mastgrave.
The rules are simple: write a 150 word story that is just one, continuous sentence. Okay, so it isn’t that simple but it sure is interesting.
The cue for this week is “Papa, I want…”
Without further ado, here is my entry for the Scene Challenge of the Week:
“Papa, I want a dolly with a pretty pink petticoat, brown button eyes and sparkling ballet shoes;
a music box that plays soothing lullabies that I can listen to while I sleep;
a brand new diary made of the finest leather so I can write all my secrets inside it along with a matching feathery quill;
oh and I would absolutely die for a piece of chocolate cake made of the finest Belgian chocolate with a strawberry on top of it as well as a cool, refreshing glass of milk to wash it down with;
if it’s not too much trouble, could I also get a nice clean blanket to keep me warm at night and if it’s quite alright with you could I also get a pretty blonde wig so I can brush my hair again and a lovely new dress to replace these stripy blue and white pyjamas…Papa, why are you crying?”
