Bonjour, Hello, Ola, Salam, welcome to another exciting week of #FridayFiction where we are gushing over fiction writing. This exercise is being great for making your imagination work a little extra. The photo prompt triggers a question – what is this? And from there starts the journey of fiction writing in a jiffy.

I tend to get weird ideas at the weirdest times – in the shower or just before I am about to sleep! Do you get these story lines at weird times? But are you new to fiction writing? Looking for some tips? Here are 5 tips for writing Flash Fiction, in case you wanted a detailed view.

The Mask – Fiction Writing #FridayFotoFiction Sep 8-13

“Officer… officer… help me.

My daughter…. My Tia is lost…”

“Calm down ma’am. Take a seat. When did you last see you daughter?”

“An hour back.”

“It is too early to panic, ma’am. Have you checked with any of her friends?”

“What do you mean it’s too early? She is only 5… my baby… please do something, please I beg of you.”

“Where were you when you lost her?”

“At the park, she was playing right in front of me, I got a call…. I was checking my phone … next second she was not there”

The officer wrote down the details but had a hidden smirk under his expressionless face.

As she left, Sergeant Roland Brown had that smirk back. The cop’s duty was his perfect mask, no one would ever know the pedophile inside him. No one noticed him grabbing the little girl in the park.
