Keith explains in his own words. “Using this photo (Below) as inspiration, write a short story, flash fiction, scene, poem; anything, really; even just a caption for the photograph. Either put it (or a link to it) in a comment or email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org before 6 pm next Sunday (if you aren’t sure what the time is where I live, this link will tell you). If you post it on your own blog or site, a link to this page would be appreciated, but please do also mention it in a comment here – pingbacks don’t often work.
Go on. You know you want to. Let your creativity and imagination soar. I shall display the entries, with links to your own blog or web site, next Monday.
Here is the photo.
To Let by John W. Howell © 2017
“So, here’s the room.”
“Wait a minute.”
“I thought you advertised a room to let that was one occupant.”
“Where did all this stuff come from?”
“Oh that. The last tenant left it.”
“Are you going to clean it out?”
“No the room lets as is.”
“You have got to be kidding. There are clothes and personal things here.”
“Call it furnished. Look there is even a computer here.”
“That seems like a holdover from the 80’s. I’m sure it is hopelessly out of date.”
“It is still a computer.”
“I’m afraid I’m going to have to pass on the room.”
“You can’t do that. I already turned down another tenant who called after you and was going to take the room.”
“Call them back or remove all this stuff.”
“You sure you don’t want it?”
“I don’t like the idea of using other people’s things especially the underwear.”
“It has all been cleaned.”
“How about a twenty-dollar discount on the rent?”
“Make it twenty-five, and you have a deal.”
