Fantastic Friday Fiction – I

January 15, 2010

Tada! Introducing a new category in my blog: Fantastic Friday Fictions…

After all, a week began with a mind blowing Monday deserves to be ended with a fantastic Friday 🙂

Its been a long while since I attempted fiction; even though I have come out of my writer’s block quite some time back. Just to motivate myself enough to create fictions once more, I decided to introduce this category. And before you label me as a narcissist, let me clarify that “Fantastic” qualifies only “Friday” 🙂 Whether it qualifies the fictions or not, it depends totally on my readers.

For my first edition of Fantastic Friday Fictions, I attempt, for the first time, the genre of writing known as Fiction-55. Please give me feedback regarding the two pieces written on one common theme – murder

55 Fiction is a micro-fiction within a word limit of 55 words, containing the following four elements: a setting; one or more character(s); conflict; and a resolution. Fiction 55s are usually dramatized so as to get the maximum effect within the restricted word limit. 

THE KILLER

The figure followed her in the dark alley. She sensed his steps and broke into a run. Suddenly she was lying face down on the road. A hand raised a dagger and brought it down at her throat.

“Cut. I think we should change to a sword for more drama”, remarked the Director.

A MATTER OF HONOUR

“I want both my son and the girl from the low caste hacked to death”.

“It shall be done”, I replied.

I could see the two lovers in the dark, lonely park. I approached stealthily with my knife. First the son, I thought. The moment I struck him, the girl looked behind and screamed “Baba”!

    I like the first one more for obvious reasons. The second one is a bit too “over dramatic” for a 55- word -fiction.

    P.S – Write more regularly. Though I myself am a rusted wreck of a writer I see little chinks. More on that later. You are doing swell. 🙂
