Welcome to the first Fi50 of 2015. Thank you for joining us for another year of minifiction. The prompt for this month is:
To participate, all you have to do is create a piece of fiction in fifty words or fewer and post a link to it in the comments so we can all appreciate your brilliance. For more detailed instructions and later prompts, just click on the challenge image at the top of this post.
Now, ideflex from Across the Bored mentioned casually that this month’s prompt could be seen as a continuation or sequel to December’s prompt (which was, of course, Into the Great Beyond). Being a reasonably lazy individual, I decided that rather than think up a whole new story, I would indeed pen a sequel to my effort from last month. If you missed it, you can read that piece here…..
Go on, we’ll wait.
Up to speed? Great. Because now I present to you Part 2 of the “On Hold” saga, which I have titled:
I pressed “2”.
“There’s been a mistake.”

“But I’m an atheist!”
I stared at the receiver..
I shouldn’t be here.
I shouldn’t –
New players are ALWAYS welcome, so if you haven’t plucked up the courage/bothered to get around to joining in, we’d love to have your contribution. There’s no time like the present. Except maybe some bits of the past, so feel free to dig out any old story ideas and modify them to fit if you like.
Next month’s prompt will be….
Until next time,
