( This week's Raven's words were less than wonderful -25 words)
Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.
Every week a nice lady named Raven gives us fifteen words and phrases to use in a story. Here we try to use those words and phrases in a flash 55.This week's words are:
fair warning, hormones, journalism, philanthropist, burgeoning, running the bulls, saturation, tossed in the towel, whine, indelicate details, hard labor, lurid, quick fix, sizable contributions, trumpet
Money Well SpentSaturation of sizable contributions by the lurid philanthropist to the burgeoning journalism class guaranteed him fair warning before indelicate details were published .
His sizable hard labor could get a quick fix before the exploits of his hormones at the running the bulls were loudly trumpeted and he tossed in the towel with a loud whine.
And Now for something completely different.
First there is poetry- written well by a few experts.
Then there is poetic drivel- written by many
Then below them all is quivel.
This is a flash 55 quivel.
Something that looks like a poem, uses at least three of Quilly’s words and has five words to a line for eleven lines. Click on the special words for definitions. Please, again, note this is a quivel it does not pretend to be a poem or even poetic drivel.
