Despite having my brain slowly approach comatose level from this being the week before Spring Break, I still have a Friday Fictioneers to present! I decided to take this one a bit more literally, probably because the picture was kind enough to provide fuel for imaginary catastrophes already. Which is fine I suppose. I like the more imaginative stuff I came up with but at least I’m sticking to that fascination for childhood innocence/stupidity that I wanted to get back to.
I had the make the reference to Lord of the Rings. A Shortcut to Mushrooms, indeed!
I should never do these blog posts in the morning, I never have anything to say.
Title: A Shortcut to the Doctor’s
Genre: Realistic Fiction
Word Count: 100
I don’t know why Mom’s so angry. I know she said we were having steamed mushrooms tonight but what was so wrong about some before-dinner snacking? Mushrooms sounded really good. But I didn’t even know we were growing our own in the barn.
She could have just told me to leave them alone. Maybe she needed them all for dinner.
I must be hungrier than I thought. Everything’s getting… blurry.
Is that the sound of a car engine? Are we going for a drive? Are we going out to eat? I was really looking forward to those steamed mushrooms.
Speaking of Spring Break, I should have the chance to do at least one more Lorequest entry during that time. Sure, I’ve got schoolwork and stuff and friends to see and a family to be with… and I think my Break is going to be just as busy as my regular school life. But I won’t be at school, so I’ll naturally be twice as productive. It’s a wonder what a good environment can do for your mind.
And I don’t mean to get ahead of myself because I know better than most just how messed-up my scheduling can be (look no further than my reflection on the M.N.P. coming a month later) but I’m thinking of finishing up my second edition of my book Garamoush soon. Not that much will have changed but I’ve added a map, a foreword, and a preview of the next book.
But that could be years off, for all I know!
Good luck, you brave writer folk~
