I recently discovered Lillie McFerrin's blog and her five sentence fiction prompts. Eager to give it a go, I finally managed to find a few spare minutes to put something together. Take a moment to stop by her blog, where there are links to many participants creating their own five sentence fiction.
This week's prompt: Abandoned (which is accompanied by a photo)
The Passage Way
Strong and sturdy metal with floors of wood, erected long ago, supplied passage for many creatures. The river roared and raged, more than once rising above its capacity, taking lives and stealing dreams. Memories, snagged and torn, remain tied to the structure in eternal pain. Crumbled and lonely, the only visits are from the wind and rain scouring away at its very being. The passage way waits for final destruction, a departing of its soul.
Have you tried other prompts? Do you find prompts to be good creative exercises? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
