Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner: Week #37

Roger Shipp is our host for Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner, a weekly writing challenge designed for both the flash fiction newbie and the more experienced writer. It is the desire of this challenge to allow writers the opportunity to clear the cobwebs from a more tedious and involved project. Becoming a part of a new and growing writer’s community might be just what the doctor ordered to rejuvenate your writing juices.

The challenge is to write a piece of 200 words or less based on the given photoprompt, then link it back to Roger’s original post either with a pingback or leaving your link in the comments there.

‘It may seem weird that half a human body made of rubber has a pulse and the first time it can freak you out,’ the instructor said with a smile.
‘We used to be fifteen compressions to two breaths, now we just do compressions. The best rhythm is to the Bee Gees ‘Stayin’ Alive’, which is very apt as this is what we are trying to do until help arrives’.
George took a deep breath and starting counting. All around he could hear karaoke Bee Gees which made him smile.


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 an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. 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.
