It’s not quite Friday, but nevertheless, it’s fiction time on Friday Fictioneers, hosted by Rochelle Wisoof-Fields. Here are my 100 words.  We will be heading out of town again.  Don’t know if I will have time or be able to access Internet.

I’m missing my words these days so let me pick up my quill before we have to head out to the country again. I sorely miss the musing of my heart.

There will be no time for me to indulge in my fantasies there. The men will be out with the hounds chasing those poor creatures. I’m expected to be along side, cheering him on.

“Drat! What egos they have. I would rather sit here and scribble away. Two more chapters and I will be done.”

I settled into the comfort of my chair, picked up my quill and began.


About hafong

Hello! My name is (Leung) Hafong alias Lily Leung. You always say the last name first….that is the Chinese way. That is my partner lurking behind me. Since this is my blog, I won’t mention his name. But this is a rather cool picture. You see me and yet you don’t…sort of the way I feel about myself most of my life. So this blog is a self-exploration, an archeology dig of some sort. My tools…..words of a thousand or so at a sitting. I will try for that.

    I love that last line. It has this aftertaste to it that is lovely – and I’m not sure why it has an aftertaste since it is words! A taste like setting out for a writing journey with ink and quill in the air.

    Most of the time we do what please others, she (if it is a she) should let the men go away, and take care of her writing.

  3. To have to conform to other’s norms.. much better to follow your heart..

  4. liz young says:

    What a shame she hasn’t thought of taking parchment and quill and ink-horn with her!

  5. Dear Lily,

    I feel her pain. Often I’d rather be home writing than doing whatever it is that takes precedence. Nicely done.



  6. Great feeling of “olden days” in this.
    The last line seems to change tense, though. Maybe I’m crazy.

      It did Alicia. It’s one of my weaknesses. I have to take out a book on grammar and tenses. Thanks for reading and noticing. I appreciate it.


  7. A true writer….. wanting to write above everything else!

  8. Lily, Well written and good story. How much more difficult it was in those days.How well you fitted articles in the photo into your story. Well done. 🙂 —Susan

  9. These days we can carry a device or a pad and paper with us (that’s what I do), then look up every now and again and smile. That’s all he needs most of the time anyway.

    I have been writing from word prompts, but only ever wrote from a photo prompt once. I may have to try it!
    I haven’t left a comment for a while, but I really enjoy your blog. Today I published a post accepting the blogger Sunshine Award. To accept it, my task was to name 11 other bloggers who have inspired me. Your supportive comments, when my blog was only weeks old, really meant a lot to me – so I have named you as a nominee. Many thanks! – Details can be found here:
