A silver sliver…
… in the sky made the coward jump over the moon.
Please bear with me, it’s my first attempt at this kind of thing. But now I find it hard to stop at the second line – how frustrating! 😉

No need to stop. 🙂 Keep going. You’ve got me hooked: who is this coward? And what was „jumping over the moon“ actually referring to? Why did the „jumping“ get triggered by a silver sliver?

Going on would be against the two phrase rule.
Not if you make it a separate post, indicating the inspiration for the new post came your two phrase story offering. 🙂

But I thought flash fiction (if that’s what it is) practically wrote itself? All I did was put my fingers on the keyboard and just let it roll.
Anyway, you never elaborated either on if you were willing or not to frolic in the autmn mist, Puff.
Still in a state of paralysis – unable to come to a decision, to make a choice about the whole frolicking thing. So many risks, yet…
In all seriousness, sometimes we do a fun writing exercise, let the fingers roll, and that’s the end of that. Yet sometimes we might see something more, some more a „story“ that needs to be told. If so, then we should not hesitate to tell it. 🙂
What a coward you are! You should just jump over some moon or other.
My problem is that I have to interpret what others write, but not being a writer myself, I never need to question myself either.
As for the coward who jumped (would make a good title), has his life changed by the big leap? Yes, of course! He’s over the moon now and enjoying it immensely. How do I know? No idea, but I created him, didn’t I?
whoa. i think you’ve misunderstood what I originally commented. You wrote in your post „But now I find it hard to stop at the second line – how frustrating!“ I was merely intending to say that your two phrase was splendid (in my opinion good flash fiction has the reader wanting more) and if you wanted to expand on it, I would look forward to reading that, too.
No one should ever feel obligated to write more, although readers shouldn’t feel they would enjoy reading more of something. It is a compliment in my book.
Thank you. I’m just not a writer, so I wouldn’t know. Truth to tell, the coward is now running amuck in my head, wanting to get out. I won’t let him, though.
[in my humble opinion you are a writer]
No need to be humble! 🙂
