Friday Fiction – Surviving the Winter
This week’s Friday Fiction is inspired by a post I saw last week on Jay C Wolfe’s blog. The challenge was to write a 55 word story in which the first line has ten words, the second has nine, the third eight and so on, ending with just one word.
I wanted to have a go at doing this myself, because it sounded like an interesting challenge. I’ve used Sara’s prompt for this week – Winter – as a starting point.
Let me know what you think. If you have a go at this yourself, tell me how you got on (and even link it up here if you can).
She carries her load through the wind and driving rain,
to her family, cosy and warm in their den,
hoping that it’s enough to feed them all.
They rely on the vixen for food,
so she’ll not sleep this winter.
Food is hard to find,
but she will try.
Until Spring returns
