Flash Fiction Friday

Flash Fiction Friday

Welcome to this week’s Flash Fiction Friday. We have a picture about which we write a story of 100 words, no more and no less. I am joined by some wonderful writers today who give their take on this picture. To see the other members click this blog link: Flasher Fiction Friday





“No creativity, my ass!” Jamie arched a pen across his office.

“Stale. Predictable. Humdrum.” He tossed a highlighter.

“Conventional.” A permanent marker made the journey this time.

“Too homosexual,” he bellowed as the remaining pencils and pens in their holder launched across the room.

After a few deep breaths, he set to work. Finally he sat back and stretched with a chuckle.

****

He hid his smirk as his boss gushed to the executive team over Jamie’s latest effort. The jerk-off would never know these two beautiful creatures were the same two gays he’d vetoed from the previous ad proposal.
