Artsy Perspective


“What is that in the yard!?”

“Oh hey Sweetie.  You saw my new art.  What do you think of it

“Mom.  That is not ‘art.’  You are not an ‘artist.’  I can’t bring friends over with that ‘thing’ in the yard.  What is it even ‘supposed’ to be?”

“Supposed to be?  Hmmm.  It’s art.”

“Ugh.  Mom, you’ve got to stop this.  Really.”

“Well, if you don’t like it, don’t worry.  I’ve already got a sale for it.”

Shelley looked at her dumbfounded.  “A sale?  How?”

“Oh, I don’t know.  Maybe, I ‘am’ an artist.

I had absolutely no idea where to go with this one when I first saw it.  Many times an idea just pops, but that wasn’t the case here.

After a few minutes, this story came to mind.  100 words is a challenge and this was no exception.  I wanted to add in some setting and some dialogue tags to flesh it out, but in the end I think it works.  Providing the reader is willing to use a little imagination to fill in the gaps.

Hope you like it!

#FridayFictioneers is a weekly blog link up hosted by Rochelle over at  You should check out her sight and perhaps try your hand at writing a 100 word story.

Good luck!
