Story a day: Day 31/FFfAW

Are you ready for the final part of that story a day challenge? I certainly am, so let’s go for it! Today’s prompt is:

The prompt

Go big or go home

This is all about writing to your strengths that you may have discovered during the month. I have been using humour in some of my stories and those are the ones that are proving to be the most popular. So, I am going to continue along the theme.

I am going to combine this prompt with this week’s flash fiction for aspiring writers.


Thank you Barbara Taylor for supplying our prompt photo this week!


It was all very strange. Here I was sitting on a bench that was somehow resting on a cloud. How did I end up here? I was staring at a body of water towards a city that I thought I knew. I scrunched up my eyes and tried to find something that would help me figure out where I was.

I tentatively put my feet on the cloud to see whether or not I could put my whole weight through nothing at all without falling to my death. Surprisingly, I could do just that and I managed to stand on my own two feet and walking towards the water.

“Drunk again?” A voice called out from behind me.

Whirling around caused me to lose my balance and land with a heavy thud on the ground I instantly recognised as pavement. As the chill seeped into my skin I realise that I was lying on snow and not cloud as I have previously believed.

As I sat up my eyes fixed on my friend. “Never again.”
