Friday Fictioneers : Flower Powder

Its that time again as I’m sure many of you already know, thank you Rochelle for setting the Friday Fictioneers up again for this week, I notice the photo is provided by your good self too, so its a Rochelle sandwich with my awful prose in the middle.

Ha!! 100 words on the nose once more!

This rather dystopian tale started off slightly differently but my dog malting continuously and my sneezing continuously led it into an unexpected direction, hope you enjoy people!!



  1. Thank you, I try really hard rather than a stream of consciousness, I’ve kept a theme of kids nursery rhymes, fairy tales, silly poems for my entire FF Life and it gets harder to mine those nuggets within kids fiction, it’s a kind of irrational expectation on my part to carry on!
