A Word For Each Year You’ve Had

This week Eccentric Chai set a fantastic writing challenge. Think of someone you know, take their age and use it as a word limit for a piece of writing about them. I’ve written a couple so far but I think I may have a go at writing a few more since I really am enjoying this prompt.

Antonia

We do insanity well.

Eccentricity is an art-form

we long since mastered

and balanced out

against each other’s minds.

 

You

I’m waiting

for a fragment of me

to stick in your throat

and choke us.

I’ve never had commitment

to catch me.

 

Alice

We forged our friendship in distance

and demoted time

to change only appearance

and leave connections as they were.

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

    • It is a wonderful prompt and I’m so glad that I found it. I really want to keep going but I’m meant to be heading out at the moment and I have three other flash-fiction pieces that I’m supposed to be writing. o.o
      I will probably end up doodling out a couple more tonight.
