Hooray! Matt, The Book Blogger now has breathing space to restart his weekly Flash Fiction Foray. The way this works is that Matt chooses a song each Tuesday and then anyone who wants to participate writes a piece of fiction, with no more than one hundred words, before the following Monday. Oh, and I make it a bit more difficult for myself by making sure my effort is always set in Greece.
Matt’s music choice this week is the theme to the new Bond movie, Spectre; The Writing’s On The Wall, by Sam Smith, and you can hear it via this clip:
To celebrate Matt’s welcome return I’ve cast him in the starring role:
The Writings On The Wall
Too soon she saw the approaching bus. ‘Perhaps you work another summer in Crete? I need better English.’
He held her close, not risking a word. As the bus drew up he snatched a pen from his pocket to scratch Matt loves Maria, among the rest of the bus stop graffiti. Then he lugged his case to the stowage area of the vehicle without even a backward glance.
When the bus departed her forlorn wave wasn’t reciprocated. Devastated she wiped her eyes.
‘What! Why you didn’t go?’
‘I have to risk it all, ’cause the writing’s on the wall.’
That’s it, over in a flash. If you’d like to see what other bloggers make of their 100 words visit
Why not give it a go yourself, it’s fun!
