I came across this list of writing prompts for May, 2017 on the Writer’s Write page and thought I’d give it a whirl. I’m going to try for a series of drabbles (precisely 100-word scenes) that will flow together featuring the characters from my Adventures with Harrison and Mason flash fiction story scenes.
May 7, 2017 — You Idiot
(Mason’s 3rd-person POV)
“Are there really dinosaur bones buried here?” Jaxon looked around the backyard.
Mason shrugged. “Never found any, but I sure tried.”
Gramps chortled. “Found plenty of fossils, though.”
“Did you keep them?” Harrison asked.
“You idiot! Quit digging holes in the yard and get over here!”
They all jumped as the shrill words drifted over the fence. Jaxon turned wide eyes to his fathers and gulped. “Thanks for never yelling and calling me names.”
Harrison scooped the boy up and hugged him. Mason patted his head and said, “Never.”
Gramps added, “And you can excavate my yard all you want.”
To be continued tomorrow using ‘cover to cover.’
All the drabbles in this series using the May, 2017 prompts can be found here (note: to read them in order, you’ll need to scroll to the bottom of the category list and read up from there).
