Cyranny’s 1MinFic

Julie stopped short seeing this “welcome” mat at Joe’s door. She tried to forget him but could not. Now with this mat, thinking it was a message only for her, she turned around and walked off. Joe peeked out his window to make sure she was gone. Then he opened the door and turned over the mat to its original “welcome” sign.

One-Liner Wednesday – The line

by Linda G. Hill

Considering my job is to throw the worst that could happen at the characters in my books, is it any wonder I worry about my kids all the time? Which leads to the question, where is the line between parenting and fiction drawn, since life is stranger?

Fandango’s Story Starter – The Diet

This is not healthy! The story below is fiction.

This week’s Story Starter teaser is: It was in the spring of 2010 when I first realized I could actually wear a size one, a mere remnant of my previous size! Every neuron in my body was doing a dance of success! I guess I can’t take all the credit, it was the incantation a witch doctor told me to repeat every hour; a screed of letting go of all appetites that were doing me harm.

I must admit it was worth the million dollars I gave him. I had all the exercise equipment in my home gym, all access to special diets and even a private chef. It was only in complete desperation I dared go to this “doctor”. I saw my weight and appearance change daily after each meditation.

It was only looking in the mirror this morning that I noticed how much I had changed, and the size one clothes I purchased a month ago are now way too loose.
