On Wednesday, I devoted a whole post for my superhero and villains and recapped my thoughts on the season finale of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. so I thought if the word fit well enough with what all happened on The Originals finale than I’d mix it in with this week’s Five Sentence Fiction. The cool part about this is that I had actually done this with The Vampire Diaries at the beginning of the season, it kind of feels like I’ve come full circle considering both of these shows are ending on the same week. (No, I haven’t cried yet.) If you haven’t finished the last few episodes then I wouldn’t suggest reading this piece at all. If you have watched it, WHO CRIED?! I know I did. I’ve been very curious of how this episode would end to be quite honest with you, I’ve been scared of all of the character’s fates. Most importantly Hayley and the little baby. At the ending of last week’s, the baby was coming and the beginning of Tuesday’s episode when Klaus finally makes it to the church the witches are ready for the birth and when Klaus goes to attack mid-delivery the witches throw him up against the wall and trap him there. After the baby is born, Monique slits Hayley’s throat that way she wouldn’t take off with her. Klaus and Elijah have a few seconds to mourn the loss of Hayley, but do everything in their power to get that baby back. The ending is just a roller coaster of feelings. It was a beautiful but a heartbreaking episode! Exactly what a season finale should be honestly.
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
This week: INNOCENCE
The world is a cruel place, enemies spoil the simple joys of life with good is overshadowed by the bad.
A baby can bring hope and happiness to every situation.
It’s time for sleepless nights, early morning feedings, and an endless amount of dirty diapers.
Instead this little family is being ripped at the seams for the sake of the newborn baby.
As tears roll down the mother and father’s faces, the fear of the unknown and heartache of missing this child grow up; she will grow up with the only known trusted family member left and she will give this world a run for their money one day.
I think I should probably do something that I should have done a long time ago. I have a page called “Writing Challenges” up in the top right corner of my blog. It’s a place where you can find what kind of writing challenges I do on a weekly/monthly basis. It’s a thing to do to keep a variety! The more I find, the more I want to do. However, having too many can lead to a mini burnout for a few weeks at a time. I love all of these challenges with my heart. However, I think it’s time to recognize the writers behind each of these challenges I do every week and month. I know there are more than my normal routine of five bloggers but they all deserve special notice since they are apart of the challenges. So let’s get on it.
- Ketchup With Us – Mel runs a blog of According To Mags, it’s about her life as a teacher, wife, and mother to her kids. Michele is also a mother, wife, and goes with life with a lot of humor. They literally have these ketchup costumes and wear them for their posts. Both ladies are so sweet and fun to talk to on Twitter.
- Bloggers Do It Better – Gemma has created BDIB challenge recently and I really love her blog, it’s very girly and simple! She’s also very helpful when you don’t have anything for that challenge, she’ll help you out and she loves fashion and beauty, so if you’re into beauty she does a LOT of product reviews.
- Picture It & Write – Ermisenda and Eliabeth own the blog, and it is everything about books kind of blog. They have their own book that they wrote called The Blind Side and it’s on there and they are the owners of one of my favorite writing challenges, it’s probably one of the easiest challenges to do. The girls are so sweet and I think every book lover would love their blog!
- Five Sentence Fiction – Lillie owns Lillie McFerrin Writes and I love her because she’s so nice and thanks to this writing challenge, before I started on this I wasn’t willing to do anything to do with writing and shrinking things down. I was always asking teachers in school to go more on assignments and with this, it really was a challenge to start for the first few weeks. Every word that is selected can be difficult for me, but I still love it. I like only writing a tiny, five sentence story each week.
- Free Write Friday – Kellie owns FWF and it’s another one of my favorites to do. My favorite ones she does are the word banks, time and scenario, and image prompt. Kellie’s very nice and something that she does is that there is no deadline with any of her prompts and you have the freedom to go where you want to with each prompt and you can have mistakes. I’m pretty sure that’s every writer’s dream right there!
