Hidden Potential

Friday Fictioneers 11-14 1

Photo Prompt Copyright-Rochelle Wisoff-Fields

I tried something different for the Friday Fictioneers photo prompt this week. My story, Hidden Potential, is on a postcard in the form of a 99-word letter. You can click on the postcard to enlarge it, if needed. I hope I didn’t take too many liberties with the word count. Some of the text was on the original postcard, so it doesn’t technically count, right?

For those of you not familiar with Friday Fictioneers, it’s a weekly writing prompt based on the provided photo, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. The catch is the story has to be 100 words or less. This week’s photo took me to Hollywood, as I’m sure it did for many others. If you would like to try your hand at writing or read some of the creative stories, click here.

    • Thanks so much, Rochelle! I found it hard to tell the story and keep it casual, sort of conversational. I had to work at fitting it in that small space too. And, no, Luanne’s not the brightest star, but I have a feeling she’ll get a quick education.

  1. Dear Lisa,

    I loved your format and the content, too. Luanne is a trusting soul soon to be tested. I hope she survives the crucible that your story hints at. How did you get the long hand writing to look so good? This was a pleasant break from the norm. Well done.



    • Thank you, Doug! The handwriting is just a font I stumbled across, but it looks like it could be real. I played with the margins so it looked less perfectly aligned. I actually tried writing it out in my own hand, but that was horrific. It was mostly unreadable. I find my handwriting suffers greatly with each passing day.

Let's talk about your feelings.
