Our street used to be so quiet before Old Man Ted moved in next door.
‘Dinosaurs! Let me tell you about dinosaurs!’
Not in an interesting way though.
‘God had no need for dinosaurs!’
Okay, we didn’t go to church regularly, but we weren’t exactly arguing survival of the fittest and all that.
But he just wouldn’t stop.
‘Meteorites killed them? Never! Weren’t no dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark.’
When the meteorite did hit Old Man Ted’s house no one bothered to question it further. It could have been God, or it could have been evolution. I guess we’ll never know.
A couple of weeks ago my writers group presented at the Newcastle Writers Festival on how to take your writing from hobby to publication. What an experience! We enjoyed every moment. Of course we took the opportunity to promote Friday Fictioneers as a brilliant way to improve your writing and instantly get an international audience. So here’s a shout out to anyone who has joined FF for the first time this week… WELCOME!
Friday Fictioneers is a weekly online challenge where writers from around the world post 100 word stories inspired by the one photo. To read more, click here.
