Friday Fictioneers -A Voice Like Music

Every week, the wonderful Rochelle supplies us with a donated image so we can write a piece of flash fiction with no more than 100 words.

It was like music to my ears. The voice of the lecturer so smooth, I don’t think even Beethoven could create such a melodic sound. He talked about geology and items he found while cave diving. Apparently though, one person in particular dogged everything he did, trying to steal his prizes.

Then the Dean came in and spoke to him, and his voice wavered slightly, like a missed note on the cello, but it was such an imperceptible glitch, you could barely notice it.

I blinked slowly so he could see “Love You” written on my eyelids just for him.

        • A great way to make the jump. What was the fan fiction you used to write for?

          Due to my pain levels at the moment, I have been unable to do any of my writing, and decided that I am going to reduce Raynard’s story from a novel to a short story.

          • Sorry to hear of your pain. 😦
            MASH if which I was and am a huge fan was the subject of those not so short stories. I had a lot to learn about the craft, but all have start somewhere. You can find them on “Implosion” and “Strange Bedfellows” are the titles. I wrote under the pen name Bigelow.

        • Hate to interrupt the conversation but I am really glad to know that Rochelle. Very encouraging and relieving too 🙂 I too started by writing fan fiction that too very late in life. It was a huge shock for me especially since I had never written anything (tho I did love reading) had no artistic interests/leanings and had a career in Science. I had a lot of trouble accepting this (non-stodgy) side of the prim and proper myself and hence went with a pseudonym to distance myself from the crazy fan 😀 Thrilled to know about you and gives me hope that one day perhaps I too may…

          • Dear Dahlia,

            Not to worry about interrupting. I actually know of another scientist who is writing a novel. It sounds like you had artistic leanings you did realize you had. You do a good job on your flash fictions.
            As for the pseudonym, requires them. But it was an amazing experience that I can’t discount. I’d gone for years ‘writing stories’ in my head and never considered putting them on paper. Writing those MASH stories heralded quite an epiphany for me.
            So keep writing, my sister. It’s never too late as long as you’re breathing.



            • Yes! I too had been drafting stories constantly but it never entered my head to write. Not writing doesn’t seem to be a viable option now. Thanks a lot for the encouragement and support Rochelle, means a lot 🙂
