Welcome to the Weekend Writing Warriors challenge. My hope is that over the next six months you’ll see either a nice & tidy 8-10 sentence flash fiction story or an excerpt from a piece I’m working on (like the one below). Check out other writers at the link above and the Weekend Writing Warriors twitter #8sunday. I posted some of this a bit ago and a bit more last week. It’s got a title, “Castille’s Stone.”


I cover my smile as I watch Porsche brush aside her pink bangs then run a hand over the back of her shaved head. She give Elise a quick smile then click-clacks on her beautiful patent leather heels to the backroom where I stand in the doorway.

“Girl,” she says, drawing the word out before clicking her tongue in disgust.

I laugh, shake my head and move towards the front of the store. It’s 8pm and I need to grab a drink.

“Yes, I know.”

“I smell belladonna,” Porsche says, following me to the front and flipping the closed sign on the door.

“Do you?”

“Don’t play, your momma would be pissed and I ain’t taking the blame for it. I told her I’d keep you clean from now on.”

  1. Nice little snippet! You utilized the power of dialogue well. You were able to give us a sense of the characters without having to narrate. You let the characters speak for themselves.

  2. Your descriptive writing in excellent. By the end of the snippet, I’d already assigned a voice to miss pink bangs. 🙂 I think she might be chewing gum–and cracking it, too. 🙂
