May 9 2017 Prompt – Adventures with Harrison and Mason #FlashFic

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 9, 2017 — Downloading

(Harrison’s 3rd-person POV)

Apparently, Mason’s idea of vacation fun was to relive his youth with their son, Jaxon. That fit with Harrison’s notion of a great holiday—relaxing with a good book while watching those two explore and channel their combined creative energy.

Gramps seemed to have the same idea as Harrison. He chuckled as Mason boosted Jaxon onto a low branch of the backyard apple tree then turned to Harrison. “What’chya readin’ now?”

“I’m downloading a short story, Unconditionally, by Nell Iris, to my Kindle.” He’d heard it was sweet. That’s what he needed after the gritty crime drama he’d read yesterday.

To be continued tomorrow using ‘tic-tac-toe.’

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).

  1. Awwwww, thank you!! You made my day!! <3 <3
    And it's true: it's soothing for the soul after Amy's traumatic ending 😀

    And I'm with Harrison when it comes to vacation. Give me a good book, a nice chair and a colorful drink with lots of fruits and a tiny umbrella and I'm a happy camper. No dinosaur bone digging for me 🙂

    1. Heehee…with “cover to cover” and “downloading”—back to back no less!—I knew where I wanted those to go. 😀

      I am totally on board with you and Harrison. Give me a lounge chair, a good book, and fruity drinks and I’ll be happy just about anywhere. Watching loved ones in the back yard is perfectly fine. On the beach or poolside (or on the deck of a cruise ship) would also be great!

  2. A big stack of manga some boba tea sounds like a perfect vacation ….err harrison basically doing that. Unconditionally would make for a nice pallet cleanser after his last read.
