#FridayFictioneers ‘Before The Snow’ #FlashFiction

I came across this photo by © Sarah Potter and couldn’t resist the temptation to write a Flash!

It’s my first time on Friday Fictioneers, which is a weekly challenge hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The task is to write a story in 100 words based on a photo prompt. Read the rules, and follow the Froggy on Rochelle’s post to read the other posts and link your own here.

Here’s my take.

Before The Snow

“Mummy, what if it never stops snowing?”

“It’ll stop, Alice.”

“But if the snow covers all the houses and we can’t go out ever again, so we have to dig a tunnel down to the centre of the earth and build a new world called Deepland?”

My father shook his head. “Where did that idea come from?”

“Nowhere. I made it all up.”

He sighed. “She needs to go back to the psychologist.”

“She’s just creative. Maybe one day she’ll be a fantasy author,” said my mother.

“Yes, I will. I’ll write about what it was like before the snow.”

  1. Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, Luccia!
    And if that is enough for a ride to the psychologist, there must not be a lot of imagination going on in that house… Nice job!

    1. Thank you so much.💗 Fortunately her mother values her creativity and will encourage her, unfortunately not everyone will have the same attitude, so she’ll need to deal with rejection, too.


  2. A great start to an amazing storyline….
    I read it backwards….but thats the beauty of your tales…. They stand alone, and yet they are sewn into a bigger picture…you can start from any side or middle and embrace the fabric. 😀
    Keep writing…. And as i said earlier…when is Alice’s story going to get published?
