Writing Friends: Check Out This Site

Madison Woods http://wp.me/Pj6xM-MQ each week invites others to join her in her:

100-word Flash #FridayFictioneers

Madison gives a picture prompt and invites writers to write a story to the photo in 100 words or less.  This is her photo for this week:

It is a lovely photo, but my writing took a different turn.  Here goes my writing:

I stood like a deer in headlights, not knowing which way to turn.  Well, literally, I looked behind me and their lights were on me.  They knew my path.  There was light on the horizon.

I decided to run, explosions in the distance, cracking sticks, limbs, and crumbling leaves encroaching closely behind me.  All was but a whisper though compared to the pounding and pulsing deafening my spirit.  I ran, no time to think, no time to contemplate, I just ran.

Minutes ago I stood, camera in hand, beauty to capture, landscape and light my focus, what happened?  Why this?

I would invite you, if you want to dabble in writing, to go to her site and join in on the fun.  A great challenge.

We both started or posts in similar ways and then they diverge. You leave us with a big mystery. Here’s mine: http://postcardfiction.com/2012/03/23/trapped/

Exciting–I’d like to know how this ended for our photographer friend. Sounds like the beginning of a great suspense/mystery. Well done!

Me, too…to be determined. It certainly was fun writing.

Hello and welcome to Friday Fictioneers. I found your piece very interesting, from photographer to hunted, how did this happen, who is after him? So many questions, I would read more…

I got quite caught up in this. There’s a lot more to be said here I feel.
Thanks, enjoyed the read.

I like how we are pulled into this scene of chaos and destruction. Without knowing what’s going on, we’re really thrust into the mindset of the main character!

Mine is this-a-way:

Welcome to the Fictioneers! I hope you enjoyed your first go and will be back for many more.

I’m intrigued about what has happened – our MC seemed to have time to think at the beginning but by the end is just running for her life.

I’m over here: http://elmowrites.wordpress.com/2012/03/23/friday-fictioneers-the-crater/

Exciting! you really got the feel of panic here. I want to know what happened and why just like your character…

Dear Kris,

How quickly things can change. One minute there to capture photographs, the next minute on the run from a nameless but frightening threat. Good job. I look forward to reading more of your wok.

Welcome aboard.

Hi Kris: Welcome to Friday Fictioneers. Nice job. This calls to mind a film I saw long ago…the person is in the woods taking photos but is really a spy…looking for the right spot to drop the goods…but is followed and gets caught. Here’s mine:

Gripping! An excellent action piece, that left me wondering who was after the photographer, I actually wondered if it was someone mundane, or perhaps even alien. Nice that you let it open to interpretation. Mine is here:

Thanks for your comments…it was very much fun to do…off to read yours…thanks for sharing

24 03 2012

What a fun idea!

I was wondering when/if someone was going to do the deer in headlights thing! It was my first thought seeing the picture, but I didn’t think of any way to use it. I’m glad someone did.

And you did a good job, to boot.

Welcome Kris, and a great first story. Pursuit is always an exciting scene to write.
Here’s mine if you haven’t read it. If you have, thanks!

I will never be out on a photographic hike again without thinking of this scenario now, LOL! Great story. I wonder what was chasing the narrator?

And YES, welcome to the Friday Fictioneers. Where’s my manners? Glad the others have been nice to you 😉

Me too. What a great experience…writing last Friday was just what I needed to start again. Thank you for hosting such a wonderful concept…everyone was wonderful…such great feedback.

I like the crunching imagery as the escape takes place. I have a few short videos I took of deer in Richmond Park near London if it’s of interest.
