#Carrotranch flash fiction – Fingers flying

Charli Mills has given us a most interesting prompt this week – Flying fingers. Isn’t that an awesome word combination.

I wrote this very quickly and the word count was exactly 99-words with not interventions. Some things are meant to be said.

It was incredible to watch the story taking shape on the pages as the ideas leapt from her mind and chased her fingers across the keyboard. It was like watching puppies play as the words and phrases tumbled across the screen, chasing each other and sometimes almost rolling over each other in their eagerness.

He had never experienced energy like this before, never seen fingers flying, eyes sparkling, and cheeks flushed with enthusiasm.

He looked at his own long, thin fingers and his brow furrowed as he tried to comprehend and understand this strange and moody female-child of his.

Just because I have a sense of humour, I am sharing Michael’s troll finger that he made out of fondant as well as his Ma Troll. His detail is amazing.

  1. This is lovely, Robbie. I could feel your mind flying along with your fingers.
    Hmmm… you know — you might be able to make a lot of money selling Troll Fingers. I know I’d sure love to give my bosses the finger. 😉 (You know I can’t resist a pun.) Hugs on the wing!

  2. I had the same thought as Teagan. Yes, the fingers would be bestsellers, I’m sure. Great story (it’s great when that happens and our fingers seem to have a mind of themselves) and love Ma Toll as well. Happy Saturday, Robbie!

      1. Nothing wrong with writing about ‘serial killers’ – there is value in exposing traits of SK’s…makes us more alert and aware.
        Still, good ‘Romance’ novels with a bit of suspense is like chocolate candy… Just saying! 🙂 ♥ Take a look at PHOENIX FIRE.

  3. This is wonderful, Robbie. Your fingers flew for you too, just as hers did. I love that you did this in one go. What a great feeling! Love Michael’s troll and finger too. 🙂
