March 14: Flash Fiction Challenge – Chisel.


March 14, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes a chisel. Use chisel as a noun or a verb. Think about what might be chiselled, who is chiselling. Be the chisel. Go where the prompt leads!

He had the sort of features any sculptor would have been proud to have chiselled.

It wasn’t surprising considering his father had been a cabinet-maker and his grandfather had been sort after as a coffin maker of distinction.

Chiselling had been in the family a long time. His dad was famous for his chiselling, door jambs and dove tails to be exact. His grandfather as the maker of luxurious final resting places. It was a shame, not one such skill was passed onto him. He was referred to as having been finely chiselled from a unique family of chisellers.
