I have become determined to overcome my fear Flash Fiction, by continuing to practice! Over at the Carrot Ranch, Charli hosts a weekly prompt. This week’s one is very unusual and definitely appealed to my sense of the ridiculous! Please go over there and check out the story behind this week’s prompt.
This is the image that we were given to use, and these are the rules:
November 9, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a fictional story about The Real Nanjo Castille. You can set any gender, era or genre to reveal the character behind the mystery. You can also imagine the daily life of The Real Nanjo Castille. Go where the prompt leads.
Respond by November 14, 2017 to be included in the compilation (published November 15). Rules are here. All writers are welcome!
I have gone with a reply to Nanjo’s e-mail. I hope that is not breaking the rules!
Dear Mr Castle, or can I call you Nando?
I heard you have some classy bags and perfumes for sale for a tenner. I am after a Christmas prezzie for my mum and she can’t stand that Coco Caramel, but is rather partial to Optimum. I think John Paul Goatier’s perfume in that bottle-shaped like a girdle would suit her better. Oh, and I need a handbag for my sisters. Have you got any of them Blueberry or Herman’s ones in stock? I’m prepared to pay you twenty quid for the lot! Let me know, please.
Jef Lepard, eh? This was a hoot. Love your take on it.
Thank, Annette. I hope Geoff won’t be too cross!! ??
Doubt it… I believe each of us is fair game to be part of another’s fiction. Now, he can officially call himself a “flasher” not that it was on his bucket list – lol
HAHA! Well, you never know!! 🙂
Ha! Nice one. (I’m so glad to see you continuing to write flash. It’s an amazing form. And it’s addictive.)
Ye, it is very addictive, Sarah. I need loads of practice at it too! 🙂
Jef Leppard ?? love it!!!!
Hopefully, he will too!! 🙂 ??
I’m sure he Will!
Nice response letter.
Thanks, Frank 🙂
Ha! Cheek!! Excellent. Better than def Leppard…
HA! Yes, I thought it went rather well! 🙂
Judy you cranked out a good one! And, yes, the best flash is the one you follow without question (go where it leads). This is like the happy ending — Nando gets his sale.
Thanks Charli, yes he got the sale! 🙂
Cheers for Nanjo. According to his profiles, he’s led a checkered and at times, tragic life. He needs a solid sale.
This is me!

Hello, and thanks for stopping by. I am Judy, in my (very) early fifties and decided that life definitely gets more interesting as it goes on! I am a wife and a mum and have just finished University as a Registered Nurse, after having worked as an Associate Practitioner in the NHS. I am also a poet and the author of my debut book, 'Rhymes of the Times.' I love to laugh, and I love rhyming words too, so I joined the two together, and my book was born. I am currently working on another book in the series also. I am a prolific blogger and enjoy writing funny stories, anecdotes, and anything really that takes my fancy.
