About Me

My photo

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

2nd Crusader Challenge and Microfiction

Write a FLASH FICTION story (in any format) in 100 words or less, excluding the title. Begin the story with the words, “The goldfish bowl teetered” These four words will be included in the word count.
Once you’ve posted your Challenge post on your blog, pop back here and link directly to it in the linky tool below (make sure you include the direct link to that post, not just the link to your blog!).
Entries in the Second Crusader Challenge will close next Friday, March 25th (at 11.59pm EST), so make sure you get your post in the linky link before then. 


I've loosely based my 100 word piece on a real incident with my brother's school goldfish...



Miraculously, the goldfish survived the ordeal.

Instead of a book blurb I'm doing a Microfiction as Susan seems offline at the moment
The challenge to write a story in 140 characters or less.

George's retirement party had been going swingingly until he got up to find the men's room; then his head was going swimmingly. (126 characters with spaces)
