Late Entry

Friday Fictioneers is a weekly blog link-up. The Challenge – write a one hundred word (plus or minus) story with a beginning, middle, and end inspired by the picture. The Key – make every word count. Up to the challenge? Join in!



Tara told her sister, Sara, that everything was arranged and the orchestra would be there, and Sara believed Tara, again. Though it wasn’t so much Sara believed her as it was she hoped this time Tara would prove she was right to hold onto her vapor of trust.

Sara pretended to the committee that she hadn’t even talked to Tara and the orchestra was all her doing.

On the afternoon of the event Sara was at the retirement club to ask Dr. Barnett if he would talk the Senior Strings (And Horns) into doing a concert at the park, again.


100 words. Fiction. Feedback is always appreciated. Comments of any kind really — so long as they are related to the post. What story comes to mind when you see that picture? Join in!

  1. Nice. It’s an effort always easier said than done – these story challenges of few words. I like to give them a whirl once in a while, but it has been a long time. Might have to practise now! 🙂


    • Thanks Robyn! I enjoy this challenge, and I think my writing has grown from trying to make one hundred words feel like a thousand. Not that I do that every time…

  2. Love the last word – again. Made me think of ritual and tradition, always comforting, even if you know what’s coming. I’m really respecting the effort of saying what you need to say in so few words. An art. Thanks.


There you have it. Your turn.
