March 22: Flash Fiction Challenge – Follow Your Dreams


March 22, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story using the theme “follow your dreams.” Bonus points for throwing a badge into the tale. Go where the prompt leads.


From an early age, he started drawing things. He showed a liking for patterns.

As he grew, he played more and more with line and form.

When his schooling was over, he had decided to become an artist.

He worked on his craft, he was invited to exhibit his work. He found a market, a worldwide one.

He discovered his choice of colour, his blue and white.

Today he follows his dream, lives off his art when he doesn’t need to borrow from his dad.

Soon he will travel the world, firstly to Singapore to display his beautiful work.

Its not exactly a badge but a sample of his work.

      He uses acrylic pens Kate what you see is a picnic rug a company has printed his design onto. It’s very useful when gkids come because they sit and eat from it and later I hose it clean
