“There is no magic grasshopper son!” Eric announced in words more firm than he meant.

“But dad, you said that Grandpa never lies!” Tommy protested.

“Yes, I did,” Eric nodded. “He hasn’t started, it’s just that Grandpa’s mind is not working as well as it could these days. He thinks some things that just aren’t true.

“He said the magic grasshopper can help me find a treasure. I want to find it dad!”

Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers – 11-28-17


003

For those that have answered the call for the Christmas themed flash I mentioned before I want to share the theme today. I am thinking about an origin story for your favorite Christmas character. Santa, Mrs. Claus, the elves, the reindeer and yes, even Frosty are fair game. I won’t fuss if you pull in Yukon Cornelius, the Abominable Snowman or any other Christmas character from movies or television. Just keep it solidly with a Christmas theme.

This will begin on December 12, 2017.
