What Pegman Saw this week takes us the the island of Mauritius.
What Pegman Saw is a weekly fiction prompt utilizing Google Maps. The assignment is to write a story–150 words or less–based upon your own street view tour, using the location link provided.
Here is the photo I chose to inspire my short fiction.
Different Climbs (fiction word count: 97)
Seriously, you three go ahead.
Okay….but are you sure you don’t want to scale this small area with us. This window of good weather means we will be back in 5 or 6 hours. We have anchors – good protection…
As I have mentioned before – what you three find exhilarating is exhausting to me. Scaling that slice of mountain is just not appealing. My climb is different from your climb. I’m just elated to reach timberline. Enjoying being here with everyone.
Okay, we’ll be back around dinnertime.
And I will dive into this book I brought.
Not much to say about this little fiction piece, except to note that I tried to have interplay with altitude – they are on a “climb” and then one hiker opts to “dive” into a book. I also used some words that start with vowels and it was not intentional, but the “e” words seemed to coordinate well (i.e. everyone, elated, exhausting, etc.)
