Friday Fictioneers-Renderings of a Bygone Era


Old Cadillac cars stand at attention. An artist’s rendering of a bygone era. Could it be all the spray paint that keeps those relics together?

People with a story to tell spray or paint their masterpieces. Stories of winning, and losing. Of good health and bad. Of dying children and spouses, or being a foot soldier in WWII.

My artwork is shoddy and I can barely draw stick figures. My art would be my words scrawled all over the hood of a car, that by God I’m still here! To hold my dear grandson, and to love yet another day.


100 words/Genre: general fiction

    • Dear Rochelle,
      Why yes you’ve caught me. I’m no artist, but yes, it is about me. I’m finding my old spirit again after I thought she was long dead. I think I’ll try another story this week and I’ll do my very best to read what others have written too. It’s only right.

      I’m loving being a grandmother to my sweet two month old grandson, Christopher. He is a shining light in an otherwise murky future.

      Now let me get to writing something of more substance.
