The start of a second year of writing! Thank you to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields who hosts Friday Fictioneers. Each week Rochelle chooses a photo prompt to inspire writers to produce a 100 word piece of flash fiction. Do use the link to her blog if you are interested in joining the group. It’s a great way to get involved in writing.

“Try yours,” he said, knowing there was no point.
They heard noises outside. Their neighbours were gathering in confusion.
“Does anyone know what’s going on?” Her voice shook as she spoke. No-one had an answer.
Standing supreme in the park, the huge wooden structure vibrated, then stood still. Waiting.
