Nonsense Writing

Tonight I have taken a break from the story and as promised I’ve started looking into short stories and checking out competitions.

I entered this little gem of a competition, Nonsense Writing, as a writer who often enjoys writing for this genre I had a fun evening coming up with this:

Clumsy Fruits

 

Justine the Orange was red.  She had been sunbathing too long and felt a bit crispy.  Her husband Dennis, the cucumber, was purple. He had fallen down the stairs and was heavily bruised.  This was their worst holiday yet.

Roderick the potato, was their holiday representative and green in colour because he was extremely unwell.  “Let me get someone who can help you” spoke Roderick through a sick bag.  With a click of his fingers he summoned over Billy the Lemon, he was blue for he had spilt ink from a fountain pen all over himself.  Roderick pointed to the couple and Billy took over “I’m sorry to hear you’re not having a great holiday but as you can see we are all having similar issues too” he motioned his arm around the office, everyone was effected by this sudden surge of clumsiness. “If I were you I’d get on the first plane out of here as soon as you can” and ushered them out of the door.

Together they looked a walking disaster so the local bar man, a human, turned them into a delicious smoothie because that’s what you do with fruit when it starts to go off.

Good luck to all writers who are currently entering competitions.  Catch you tomorrow.

I am writer, writer am I. Mum of 2 cats and 2 children. Wife of James of Tameside. Delving deeper, blogging is new to me but writing isn't. I loved writing as a child, loved making up silly stories, they came very easily to me. I studied Screenwriting for Film and TV at university and gained a 2:1 BA honours for it but then never did anything else with it. I struggle a lot with motivating myself and with now having 2 cats plus kids that motivation went right out of the window....up until recently. A friend had suggested starting a blog and so I set up on WordPress and my motivation came flying back into my life like it had always been there! There are days where I'm either too tired to write but I am always thinking of my main project - writing a children's novel. So that's progress right?
