April’s Fiction in 50 is a bit of a “choose your own adventure” lark, with a prompt allowing you to fill in the blank! To play along, just create a piece of poetry or prose in fewer than 51 words, based on our monthly prompt, then post it and link back to your post in the comments. For more detailed information on how to play, just click on that large button at the top of this post.
So April’s prompt is…
(You fill in the blank!)
I decided to use the prompt as my title for this month, and so my contribution is:
Born to Leave His Mark
Ned dreamed of being influential.
Ned’s favourite job was naming streets in posh parts of town. Arm Road crested Pitsmell Street. Greyhair Avenue projected at an unsightly angle from Nasal Passage.
His greatest achievement was the waterfront.
All those mansions, with pristine views over Pudendal Canal.
I can’t wait to see what others have come up with this time around!
For those who like to be organised, next month’s prompt will be…
Until next time,
