Writing in the wrong place #100 word story

“Mom! What a peaceful place! A writing desk at the window with a wonderful view of the stream, and the mountains! Isn’t this place perfect to finish your novel?”

“Emily, the house is perfect. But I couldn’t work on my novel. See that brick house across us.  Whenever I sit at my desk, the lady in that house notices me and waves at me. Immediately she comes home, starts chattering and doesn’t leave for a couple of hours. I don’t understand how to avoid her. Probably I should pull down the blinds before I start writing!”

Each week, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields-Addicted to Purple hosts Friday Fictioneers where we’re challenged to write a piece of flash fiction in 100 words, more or less, based on the picture above. Thank you, Rochelle, for this challenge.

  1. A blind will be perfect, she’ll still be able to look out, but the neighbour won’t see her… until she turns the light on. Nice story.

  2. Yeah they interrupt all the time, demand your time then ask “where’s that novel you’re supposed to be writing?

  3. Used to live in a place like that… now, have to say, I kinda miss the old biddy gossiper. Never had to order a paper or watch the news with her around… of course, her news wasn’t always without bias or even factual, but it was entertaining.

I'm all ears. Tell me.
