Hello Readers, This week at Carrot Ranch, Charli Mills invited flash fiction writers to write about “mice”
Title: Mouse over Mice
Word Count: 99
Are you talking to Romano?
Tell him his agent called. His photo sold for $10,000!
He wants to know if it is was the Golf Swing photo?
Was it the Boxing Ring Power Punch shot?
He wants to know if it was the blurry Runner Catching the Baton or the smooth Wind Glider?
He said he’s stumped. Those are the only photos he had for sale.
Tell him his agent added more to his store. He sold Mouse over Mice.
Silence over the phone.
Then Romano laughingly said, “People today are loco. They bought that one?? Loco!”
I am reading an old book about selling photos. For my fiction, I imagined that someone had a lot of wonderful photos for sale but then sold one of their “junk” photos instead of the “good” ones. This idea came about because sometimes what “sells” (with literature, photos, videos, etc.) is sometimes the junk stuff – while the quality or beautiful often gets overlooked. I also wanted to have some fun with a computer mouse and some mice.
