  2. It's hard enough for me to post every day...I'm doubly impressed by the fact that you're incorporating fiction! I love the word "boisterous".

  3. Nice snippet. I can see the impatient teacher, the boy struggling to come up with something.

  4. It was at that point, that Matt Dillon decided that writing was not for him and that he would become an actor.

  9. Excellent theme idea!

    I almost feel sorry for Dillon, except that I didn't struggle with writing anything after fifth grade.

  15. Donna, another lovely short. Have you heard of #5MinuteFiction? It is a flash fic contest that happens each Tuesday evening. (630 Mountain Time) You follow the prompt and have 5 minutes... it is a ton of fun and I bet you'd be great at it!

  16. Hi Donna, thanks for popping back round to AB. Wonder what tomorrow's plucky narrator will contend against in ten sentences or less. :)

  17. You really do a terrific job of condensing so much into so few sentences. That poor boy, unable to join in the boisterousness, and that poor teacher, anxious to go home. Nicely done!

  21. And I nearly missed this one. Sorry Donna, finally found your archive blog list, I must remember to scroll down pages ;). Glad I was able to provide a prompt. You get so much feeling into so few words.
