This week’s prompt over at Carrot Ranch ( http://www.carrotranch.com ) was a bit different. It was to write about a park bench based on a gif that covered twenty-four hours in the life of this park bench. The title was to correlate with the time of a particular image. Per usual, the flash fiction was to be exactly 99 words (no more, no less). Here’s the pedometer geek’s version.
The day was sunny and warm so Victoria decided to take her little boy to the park. Jamie held his mother’s hand as they crossed the street and walked to the playground.
Jamie loved the slides, and Torie loved the Little Free Library that was adjacent to the bench. There was always a good selection of books for both kids and adults.
As Jamie played nearby with his trucks, Torie chose Shrader Marks: Keelhouse from the library and began to read. She also chose The Very Hungry Caterpillar for Jamie’s naptime.
Tomorrow, she’d bring a couple books to share.

Check out all of the flash fictions as well as the gif at http://www.carrotranch.com. Some are truly inspired and touching. It is amazing the depth of the stories that the writers come up with in just 99 words.
