As a frequent participant in Friday Fictioneers, I thought it was time for me to show the variety of stories that come out of these contests. Below are ten randomly-selected entries for this week’s contest, for which I had submitted Artistic Vision:
- In Birthday Party, Iain Kelly adds an unwelcome visitor to the scene
- Neel Anil Panicker provides a similar dark twist in The Lure
- A Dangerous Game by Colline Kook-Chun uses the children’s game as a parable of innocence
- The party ends abruptly in Granonine’s Game Over!
- Many stories had the donkey coming to life, but Reena Saxena’s I believe in you provides a literary twist to the device
- It’s hard to make a political statement in 100 words or less, but Speedway Randy gives it a shot in Figures
- Rowena provides a surprise ending in “Ma-Ma!”
- Childhood, by Dale, recalls a day when children could play with less direct supervision
- Alicia Jamtaas used an approach very similar to my own in Taking Advantage
- Cheaters may never win, but Marlicia Fernandez shows they can have fun in Consolation Prize
Those were just some of the entries for this week. Rochelle’s next photo this coming Friday should inspire similar creative efforts.
