What Goes Around Comes Back Sooner Than Expected | #12 ZapFic50 Friday | (1/14/22) - Prompt: slam

in Freewriterslast year


Hello everyone. Welcome back to my weekly participation in the ZapFic50 Friday. @felt.buzz and the Freewriters Community bring you a new microfiction format for your freewriting. This new ZapFic50 Friday challenge tests our ability to construct as near complete a story as we can using exactly 50 words.

The challenge starts on Fridays. It's a great writing opportunity over the weekend using various prompts as your guide.

In this 12th week's writing prompt "slam", I address the concept of competition. Being competitive can be a positive experience. How does one determine when it's gone too far?

I leave below my wordcounter screenshot showing the 50-word count for my 12th ZapFic50 Friday story:

Guests will be arriving shortly.

Exposing clinched teeth, Gabe checked the list while lamenting last week's defeat.

Wife's best party spread on the counter. Drinks chilling in the fridge. Smokes waiting.

Gabe pulled out his maneuvers' cheat sheet; then sat, grinning.

Slick Willie is gonna get a good snookering tonight.
