Romance Weekly Blog Hop #lovewritechat

RW Banner

If you’re joining me from Susan Peterson Wisnewski, author of Chasing the Rainbow, then welcome!

Something a little different for the Romance Weekly Hop this week.

We were tasked with writing a piece of flash fiction in the word count range of 100-150 that included the words: Candle, scarf, and chocolate.

Now, seeing as this is my first ever attempt at flash fiction and I couldn’t think of a story that could be resolved in that word count, I decided to write a bit of a random scene instead (coming in at 151 words, annoyingly)! Hope you enjoy πŸ™‚

β€œYou’re going to have to come out of there,” he teased, a smile flickering at the corner of his lips.

β€œNo,” she said, her words a muffled mess through the thick scarf wrapped around her neck and half of her face like an Egyptian mummy. She continued to warm her chilled fingers over the lit candle that stood in the middle of their table, the view of the lake spread out around them, beautiful but cold.

β€œFine.” He shrugged and plopped one of the rich truffles into his mouth, moaning as he bit into it.

She pouted behind the scarf, blinking as a snowflake fell on the tip of her nose. β€œAlright!” she said, and yanked the scarf down past her mouth.

He smiled, and plopped a chocolate between her open lips. She jerked the scarf back into place and sighed at the velvet sweetness that burst from the truffle.

Now why not check out what Victoria Barbour wrote in response to this flash fiction challenge? πŸ™‚

    • 2 years? You must be a major pro at it now! πŸ˜€ It was my first attempt, so wasn’t really sure what I was doing! Was great fun though.

      • I definitely enjoyed it. I also loved having word count restrictions. It really helped my writing because I had to learn to say things in either as few or as many words as possible. Lots of fun! I think you did terrific πŸ˜€
