fiction in 50Welcome to the February edition of Fiction in 50, where young and old, novice and master, serious and slightly silly, gather to share their golden nuggets of micro-narrative. If you’d like to join in, simply create a piece of fiction or poetry in 50 words or less using this month’s prompt and post a link to your work of genius in the comments of this post. If you want to share on twitter, don’t forget to use the hashtag #Fi50.  To find out more about the challenge and future prompts, simply click on the large attractive button at the beginning of this post.  This month’s prompt is…

Shuffling Off This Mundane Coil

Shaz,

I can’t go on.  Don’t try to stop me. I’m going to a better place.

Jodz.

Dear Jodie,

I have received your resignation and we at Kwiki-shop Groceries wish you the best in pursuing an acting career.  We will all say we knew you before you were famous!

Sharon

(Manager)

Keen-eyed readers will note that this is actually 51 words (again!).  The last time I asked for editing suggestions I received a slew of excellent thoughts, so feel free to pitch in and let me know where I could lose a word or two and get under the required 50 words.

Next month’s prompt will be…

kernel of truth

Looking forward to seeing everyone’s contributions this month (especially any newbies!)

Until next time,

Bruce

    In response to your request for a refund for faulty goods, the answer is no.

    The 5-pt text at the end of your guarantee tells you that. Do you seriously think anything that cheap would last as long as a year?

    Got you, sucker!

    Have a nice day.

    Sincerely Yours….
