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).
