FFfAW Challenge-Week of November 14, 2017

Welcome to the 141st Challenge

Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers


Thanks to any1mark66 for the prompt this week.

Portache loved to draw.
Sometimes his choice of material was a little unusual, but nobody really minded. He was only seven years of age, and it wasn’t as if he was doing any damage.
Portache discovered the magic of mixing clays and water to produce colour for his artwork, plus the beauty, and permanence, of using the edge of a stone on another  to make his mark. He liked to draw everyday things and drew a picture of himself keeping his workplace tidy.

Fast forward three million years, the Experts were trying to explain his drawings in the rocks, which ranged from stick animals to spears, flowers and fires.
No-one had any suggestions for this one though, but the Professor’s young daughter unknowingly came pretty close when she said it looked like an anti litter campaign.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
