In December 2015, I started a monthly competition challenging my blog visitors to provide me with prompts for me to choose my favourite and write their story in no more than 500 words. The piece published here is exactly 500 words and was inspired by the prompts below provided by Amanda Niehaus-Hard
Character name/s: Alonzo, Bobby
Object: Fishing pole
Dilemma: A secret that is known to both parties but must be admitted
Character trait / emotion / quirk: Shyness
Colour / shade of colour: Sea foam green
Other comments: Down ending
I loved writing it and Amanda tells me that she thoroughly enjoyed reading it so we hope you do too (and that you take a moment to leave a review to encourage others to read it - thank you!). And maybe it will inspire you to go to my blog and challenge me to write your story! (The challenge is ongoing and has a 15th of the month deadline.) The details are at the end of the eBook together with my email address should you need further information or like to feedback on this challenge.
