Friday Five Sentence Fictioneers – Cafe Ending

28 December, 2012

As a special Christmas/New Year treat for you, and to save me having to write two pieces, I have written a mash-up this week between Rochelle‘s FridayFictioneers  and Lillie‘s Five Sentence Fiction. Huge thanks to both as always for providing inspiring and thought-provoking prompts every week.

This is Lillie’s prompt:

and here is Rochelle’s:

100 words in five sentences using two themes. All comments and criticisms welcome, sought, encouraged.


She was unaware of the waitress arriving with her fourth cup of Earl Grey, had already forgotten it had been ordered.

The click of the china on the wooden tabletop distracted her eye momentarily from the screen but her thoughts, her concentration, remained on the Island.

The Island where the characters she had nurtured into life talked, conflicted, resolved.

This week, everything else in her life was secondary, she lived only for the keyboard and screen where she chronicled those characters’ movements, their actions.

The café around her was no longer part of her consciousness as she approached the ending.

    How lovely! This captures the writers passion so well.

  2. Lovely RG. Just lovely.

  3. This story is perfect. Excellent combine of prompts. You have captured the writer’s mind and drive, and pictured J. K. Rowling for me, the day she finished her first novel.
