What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction (FSF) is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.

Below is an excerpt of my entry in Joe Bunting’s Show-Off Writing Contest. To read the entire thing, kindly visit my website at http://www.jblearnstowrite.com/ :)
I crossed the street and there she was, standing in front of me, as if she’d been waiting there all this time. Her once auburn hair had been dyed black as midnight. She had it cut as well, it was now just a bit below her ears. I also noticed she was no longer wearing her black rimmed glasses. She raised her hand and waved at me and she smiled. The last time I saw her was when I dropped out of college. She’s changed so much. That’s the first thought that popped inside my head.
I reached the other end of the street and she walked closer towards me. “You look nice John,” she said. And for a moment…for a moment I forgot why my hands were balled into fists. I felt…happy.
An awesome way to start my day: Just found out I won second honorable mention in Joe Bunting’s show-off writing contest! Awesome!
Another bit of news: I now have my own website. I’ll be gradually pulling away from tumblr and moving all of my posts in my new website. Kindly visit me there! :)
