Undeserved Pain

Flash Fiction 55
Friday 55 Flash Fiction is brought to you by G-man (Mr Knowitall). The idea is you write a story in exactly 55 words. If you want to take part pop over and let G-man know when you've posted your 55.Here is today's story:

Real Undeserved Pain

He banged his head on the wall.
He pounded his fist on the keyboard.
He cried.
He hollered.
He said the words ma never let him say.
But still emptiness.
Still loads and loads of nothing,
It was almost time.
It was time.

He still didn't have a single idea for a


Flash fifty five.

Since I discovered it was okay I am writing a second flash 55 which will be a continuous story but a complete story every week. Here then is the twenty fifth chapter in the exciting ongoing adventures of Sir Laughsalot and Robberhood
The entire story to date is HERE
The most recent chapters are HERE

Someone was robbing the Good King's castle.
Things were vanishing.
The King's gold was part of those things.
Good King Underwear was devastated.
Squires were accused and some were driven out.
But the robbery went on.
Could it be a Knight of the Square Table?

Sir Laughsalot knows but he is only laughing not telling.

Of course the dragons were busy today you can see them HERE.

I only read your first and must say it's really ingenious... you witty knight!

To write about having nothing to write about. The mark of a good writer.
Nicely done.

Very good - very apt too! That feeling of panic as the deadline nears is so familiar!

I like the first one. I am already feeling that way about next week. I really don't know how I came up with this weeks.
I love the 2nd one too. Wow, you do 2, I am amazed.

Cat said...

But you did it even without having nothing to say! Loved that!

Sir laughs alot needs to start talking I think!

G-Man said...

Yes Doc, inspiration comes in many forms!
Maybe if you weren't consorting with Edgar Allan, you'd have come up with an idea for this week!
Thanks for playing My Friend, you always make me smile....G

A 110! Now that's getting your money's worth. Fun stuff. Mine is up as well. But just a 55.

Alice Audrey said...

The first one reminds me of the "I can't think of 55" 55 I did a little while ago. I was tempted to do another this week, but then I got an idea and ran with it.

Poor king, losing his gold.

Nessa said...

The head banging must have helped because your 55's turned out great.

I don't trust that sir laughsalot.

Mona said...

LOL! that happens! But sometimes a no-idea is an idea too. Like it is here! :D
