33-word Flash Fiction. Theme: WRITING
Another overwhelming response from readers. Here in one Gallery, you get to read all 19 takes on the theme “writing”.
Welcome. Step in, take your time and enjoy.
Let’s start with the contribution from Ben blogging as The Most Excellent Way. What a unique approach to expressing writer’s block. Glad to have you on board, Ben 🙂

We have a new contributor with her take on Writing. People, please read Helena blogging as Helena Mallett 75 word Story Teller

This last piece simply titled Writing is from regular contributor, Susan blogging as A woman’s view of hunting — with men. She was actually the first contributor to this gallery and set the ball rolling. Thank you very much Susan 🙂
And that, as my good friend Jasey Chua would say, “is a wrap, folks”. Hope you enjoyed the tour 🙂
I’ll return with a WORD PROMPT imbedded in a 33 word flash fiction and some guidelines on how you too can participate in the next gallery. Hope you can join and share your talent.

If you are new here, check out this page Blog Tips for some background on these Galleries.
I am delighted and very grateful to have both my contributions in your gallery of writers on writing. A treasure trove of poignant passages, and it’s nice to know so many people have read and commented on the poems. I especially enjoyed elizfrat’s piece.
It appears that, through the myriad of comments, many others will contribute come the next prompt. We all look forward to it, as well as to your own initial posting of the next theme.
Kudos on the tome deal, and best wishes to you, good Sir!
Paul 🙂 🙂
The feeling is mutual – delighted and grateful that you joined in and helped make this ‘gallery’ a success. I simply love reading all the various takes on a given theme or prompt – it helps me understand people’s thinking which is fascinating.
Yes, every new prompt/gallery attracts a slew of new entrants – and then, the contributors whom I treasure – the regulars. The “regulars” are the ones who keep me enthused and going, and to them – we all owe immense gratitude. You have one of my regulars, Paul. Thank you my friend.
Thank you re the book project. Coming along well, kind sir 🙂
All good wishes for the weekend,
Reblogged this on Daylight Tune Ministries and commented:
Enjoy Eric Alagan (whom I introduced before) who designed the 33 words flash fiction gallery 🙂
Thank you dear – you are so sweet 🙂
These are all so very good Eric. Reading them always a pleasure, even when I miss writing them. So many wonderful contributions.
Hello and thank you, Val for dropping by.
These contributions are lovely, I agree. Hope to have you join us with the next one.
Many good ones here. Wish I could have seen the prompt in time. I would have entered. I was so busy with other things I am still catching up on others’ blogs.
Hello Joyce – yes, many talented people here. I’ll be doing more ‘galleries’ so, no worries as you’ll have opportunities galore. Peace and all good wishes, Eric
OK. Thanks Eric. I’ll look for them.
Hi Eric these are all wonderful but Ben get’s my vote as I feel exact the same way sometimes and he expressed it so well! I’ll try to catch the next one, I did enjoy the experience the last time I participated.
Yes, with such a buffet spread, one will spring forth that resonates for us – glad you found that “one” in Ben’s contribution.
It was great to have you with us and hope to have you join us for the next gallery.
A magic of words
Magical indeed – so many rabbits drawn from one word 🙂
I enjoyed reading all the poems on… writing, 😉 Eric, … ah this crazy time …filling a white virgin page… ‘Tis a wonder anyone writes.. but we are pulled back time and time again, for the moving cursor encourages us , as we write and then moves on, always chivying ,methinks… xPenx
Glad to have you read them all, Penny G –
Drawn to write
Like moths to light
Spilling thoughts, emotions, words
On virgin whites
Peace, Eric 🙂
A wonderful collection. I could relate to every one of them. Glad to hear about your book project, Eric.
That’s lovely, Peg – beautiful 🙂
Oh, thank you about my book project – keeps me out of trouble.
Wow what a talented group of writers! Helena, Tammy Jane, Ailia and Paul Grignon’s entries are my personal favourites 🙂
They are all talented writers and generous too – sharing their works here 🙂
All good wishes,
May I reblog, Eric? 😉
Please see my earlier reply to your request here > http://wp.me/p1YE83-1oF
Thank you, Eric, for the reminder 🙂
LOL – you are cute 🙂
A great selection!
Thank you Helena, and also for your contribution 🙂
Oh no, I’ve been ‘outed’!!! 🙂 Loved reading these and some great entries again. Thanks Eric
We’ve both “outed” 🙂
Or, perhaps the literary types are the ones getting “outed”.
You’re welcome Elizabeth and all good wishes,
Lovely to see my lines here. I had actually forgotten about these. And its always a delight to read the other contributions .
Yes, I called for contributions several weeks ago – and now realise the delay in posting actually worked out well – glad you enjoyed the ‘fresh read’ – including your lovely contribution.
Great compilation Eric! I’ve bookmarked this one, I love writing on writing! Thanks!
Oh, thank you Shainbird – see you around 🙂
Would look forward to your next word prompt.
Yes, please look out for the prompt and do take part.
I liked reading through the other contributions. (Geez, I’d forgotten I even wrote something for this!) Nice work in pulling all of them together 🙂
Thank you, Janna
Yes, the contributions came in weeks ago and the delay in posting this ‘galelry’ worked out well. Several of the contributors themselves have forgotten what they wrote – gives all a fresh read, so to speak.
All good wishes,
P/s If not a clump of wood, it could be something a large elephant would leave behind 😯
You did it again – an awesome anthology! Cheerio, Jane
Wow lots of great writing my fave is the second!
I envy you – I can’t quite decide on a favourite – love them all 🙂
The introduction and ending to this post are as fun as the contributions are impressive.:-) All the best for the recent project.
Hello and thank you, Vera – much appreciate your visit, comment and well wishes. Yes, we have many well written contributions here.
Good to see you back. All of the above were lovely. I could particularly relate to Helena and Elizfrat’s pieces. Thank you for putting up my write-up among these wonderful pieces.
Thank you, Padmini – yes, these are wonderful contributions as is yours 🙂 Thank you for your visit.
P/s I recently landed another ‘ghostwriter project’ – writing a non-fiction for a businessman – tight schedule. Together with my other projects – hence had to cut down on blogging.
Oh. Is it a book that you are writing or an online project? Good luck with all your projects:)
A business book. Thank you for your well wishes 🙂
Yeah, good to see you back, Eric. So nice to have the background, the beautiful text and the next introduction 🙂
You’re welcome Yoshiko and thank you for your ever presence in these galleries 🙂
Welcome and I feel glad to contribute 🙂
