So I stumbled across this ripper idea for a blog hop: the Déjà Vu Blogfest! The idea is to repost a post from earlier in the year, to both take the heat off creating original content at this busy time of year and to give an overlooked post or old favourite a second airing. The hosts of the Deja Vu Blogfest are DL Hammons and Nicole Zoltack – three cheers for a great pre-holiday blog party! At the end of this post you can find the linky with all the other participants – it’s a great opportunity to hop around and find some new bloggers to connect with.
So I have chosen a Fiction in 50 that I particularly enjoyed writing. In fact, it was a close call between this one and my entry for the February 2014 challenge, Love in the Time of Palindromes. The Fi50 I have chosen however is one in which I was heartily pleased with my wordplay. Without further ado, I give you my contribution for the January 2014 Fiction in 50 challenge, on the prompt “The Best of Intentions”.
I feel like I’ve outdone myself this month, and I hope you agree. This is certainly my favourite piece so far! Although, admittedly, it is 51 words long and therefore fails the challenge, but I could not decide on another word to cull. Editing suggestions are most welcome. I have titled this piece….
Bob’s Big Break
“What’s your best price Bob?” asks St. Peter.
”We’ll replace this path with patented Good Intentions Pavers, plus eternity-length warranty on cracking and fading, for $9 million per square metre!”
“Okay, $8m. Mate’s rates.”
“Go to Hell!” sputters Peter.
Bob considers. It’s the break he’s been looking for.
So there you have it. Join in with your links here:
The linky will remain open for a whole month, so you’ve got plenty of time to play along (and cull that 51st word). New players welcome! Old players in disguise welcome!
