#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.”

  2. 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!

  3. Her imagination should be encouraged, hopefully the parents will come round to her way of thinking. Nice take.

  4. Dear Luccia,

    I agree with Alice’s mother. Creativity should always be encouraged. Lovely story and a hearty welcome to Friday Fictioneers. I hope you won’t be a stranger.

  5. That last sentence is brilliant. And so it the tone of the story and the voice of the girl. We are left wanting to know so much about her… and about what might come.

    • 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.


  6. Great! I think my story would be before the heat came!

  11. A lovely take on the prompt. I do wonder why people misunderstand creativity as partial insanity! Hope her parent do come along. Cheers. I’m fairly new to the Friday Fictioneers too. Welcome!

  12. Welcome, good to have you with us! That was a nice story, sometimes it is better to feed the fire instead of quenching it.
