Oh my goodness! I don’t know the last time this has happened to me. I got inspired to write a second Friday Fictioneer story, based on Trish Nankivell’s photo! Had to. Click on the frogs below to join in or to add your own 100 (I clocked in at 95 on this one!) story.

Grandma! Why do you have a lock on your toilet paper roll? Afraid someone is going to steal it?
I’m trying to stop time!
What? You have got to be kidding! I think you are losing it.
Oh, I’m losing it, all right.
I know you’re just kidding. You’re the most alert eighty-something I know!
Alert, I may be. But time is going way too fast.
Not that fast, Grandma.
Trust me. You’ll see as you get older. Life is like a toilet paper roll. The closer you come to the end of it, the faster it spins!
Happy Father’s Day to my Daddy Readers! On this day I am missing my own father as well as the father of my sons.
A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to it in the comments. Thanks, Sammi, for this most excellent challenge.
I understand it to be linear
And nonlinear time is but a theory
Why is it that sometimes
One day lasts a year; a year flies by in a second?
State of mind? Perception? Nonlinear time?
When I fear or dread an upcoming event
It shows up at the speed of light
When I desperately want something to happen
It goes at a glacial pace
