Flash Fiction learning that the heart of writing is imagination + craft + editing.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving your comment I appreciate them .Larry.Caribbean–Pirates
Very well done my friend. I really like this :)
Oh dear, so sad.Rather philosophical right?Have you a great week!hugsshakira
Ahh -- a philosopher. I do wonder about our fascination with making pirates 'marketable'. Two weeks with the Somali or Chinese type would change our mind about the romance of that life, I think!Well done!
I had to read that a couple of times through to get it, but it is great -- the pirate ship bemoaning its former glory. I daresay I like it better in its current occupation!
Very good idea John, most of these are so completely different. A bit sad, and I like them that way! Sad is far more interesting then happy! Fiction always is to me!
Oooo, a tiny story hinting at such a bigger one! I like this a lot, wondering what revenge has brought--You've also got my brain-gears spinning on the topic of retired pirates, hmm, story...Loved it John!
how times change!nothing left for the pirate but memories...
Nicely done John, Thanks for stopping by the blog and leaving comments. Sometimes it takes me a bit to acknowledge but I do appreciate all my visitors.
Oh, great one, Larry! Nothing like a pirate with memories -- guess these days that's about all that's left! Have a great week1Sylvia
Sad, but really beautiful words. It also makes one curious about his/her story on the glory of the past. Great MM! Have a wonderful week :)
This is excellent! I'm definitely going to have to come back and visit you again. Oh and thanks for visiting me @ the Infamous JM
Nice story John - it sneaks in and grabs ya by the short and curlies.
Welcome and thanks for dropping in. I'll pop by yours by and by. This blog was inspired by First 50 words where you freewrite from a single word prompt. I use random words or images to create flash fiction in formats ranging from twitter postcards to short short stories.
