Fiction Cafe Writers Group 30 Day Challenge, Flash Fiction

The Fiction Cafe Writers 30 Day Challenge (Day One)

After a long (and tough) break from writing, I’m returning with a writing challenge! It is September after all, a time for new beginnings and my favourite time of year. Tomorrow also officially marks the end of the school holidays (resounding cheer?!) and my chance to return to a little guilt free writing time – yay!

So, I’ll be joining in with The Fiction Cafe Writers Group September Challenge (they’re on Facebook – look them up!).

I may not manage every day but I’ll give it a good go! …

Day One: Drabble (write 100 words on anything you wish)

If Only

‘Be careful what you wish for’ my mum always warned. She was a textbook pessimist, always on hand to point out the potentially bad outcome.

My brother very quickly morphed into her mini me. I took to calling him ‘Worst Case Scenario Boy’ and enjoyed pushing his limits a little too far.

That day he had told me the branch wasn’t secure. But what branch is? I called him a wuss and bullied him out a bit further.

I’d still be laughing at the memory of his bulging eyes, had it not been the last time they looked at me.
