Lillie McFerrin Writes
This week's writing challenge from
Five Sentence Fiction
Lillie McFerrin Writes ) is based upon the prompt:


What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week Lillie posts one word for inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.

Another short one...

Undying Devotion
"I'm sorry to hear about your wife, Mr. Jennings."
"Thank you, Sarah. She was good to me, and I miss her very much."
"How long were you married?"
He looked away, then speaking softly, said, "Forever."

  1. Nice. And not a semicolon in sight!

    1. If it's this short and I need a semicolon, I'm in serious trouble!

      I keep trying to make my posts to these challenges succinct. It's part of my training as a writer!

  2. The five sentence fiction format tends to result in longer, unwieldy sentences - a crime I am guilty of myself :)
    This is meaningful yet succinct, refined. Elegant.
    Well done.

    1. Thanks! I have a tendency to say too much, and I've always admired those FSF posts that are short and still work. Sometimes long sentences can work, too, but it's a lot harder to do without stretching the bounds of sentence structure and grammar.
