Five Sentence Fiction

Lillie McFerrin’s Five Sentence Fiction
This week’s inspiration word is “Your Choice” So I chose : Jubilant
The first flakes of the season floated down from the grey clouds, landing on the brownish grass and forming a thin blanket of white. Astrid watched from her bedroom window, dreaming of all the snowmen, snow angels and snow forts she’d soon be making. Visions of snowball fights, sledding and sucking on delicious icicles – smooth yet sharp enough to harm – raced through her mind in flashes and bursts. She wiped away the fog her excited breath had caused against the cold glass. Her mother’s warning about icicles hanging from the car crossed her mind; Those are too dirty, stick with the clean ones, though Astrid wasn’t sure how to tell the difference.

  1. Now I wish I could go play in the snow! Astrid is such a fantastic name for this piece, too. I particularly love the flow and word choice in the third sentence. Great as always!!

  2. Thanks for commenting Rachel! It isn't part of anything, not yet anyway :)Thanks Lillie! Maybe one day you'll be able to play in the snow πŸ™‚ The name Astrid is from one of my favourite books – White Oleander.

  3. I love this scene–you've done a great job of drawing the reader in. The whole time I was reading it, I was thinking about my four-year-old son; he's been begging me to let him go outside and play in the snow. πŸ™‚
