Monday Motivations On A Tuesday…

As most of you will be aware by now, I’m holding a couple of short story competitions – one for a flash fiction story of up to 100 words (open theme) and one for a longer story of up to 1000 words (on the theme of treasure) . Every Monday, I’ve been writing my own story as an example and to motivate you into getting your writing week started. Last week, Steve Walsky was motivated to write a 100 word story. I’m sure you’ll agree, it’s brilliant:

Fowl Business


Steve Walsky

Eddy grew up on the family farm. Being the youngest of six children, he was given the task of feeding the chickens. While some would say it was mundane work, Eddie would find out his pecking order. Thus it was no surprise that Eddy would eventually own a chicken business, and is now busy running a multi-layer organization.

One day Eddie’s car, a Range Rover, disappeared; how foul, thought Eddie. Thankfully the police quickly found the car; and Eddie said this coupe was a feather in their caps.

Being foresighted, Eddy bought a cow to beef up the farm’s security.

    Thank you for posting the story. As I was about to tap ‘like’, I thought, “hummmmmn, would that be egotistical.” Well, I did tap ‘like’ because you have a wonderful blog. Thanks for all the work you put into it.
