Writing Prompt: Field Day

Another 50-word story. This time using a prompt from Ragtag Community. The Lady’s word is recharge. Whoa! Serendipity! I just listened to a podcast “Laziness Doesn’t Exist.”

“Recharge is redundant.” Matthew kept his focus on his keyboard. “The word you want is ‘charge’.”

“To reiterate,” Stephanie said.  “I need time alone to recharge and refresh.”

“Iterate,” Matthew pressed his lips into a straight line. “To utter repeatedly.”

“I need a rest from this.”

“Good. Concise and understandable.”

I must admit, I started out in one direction and made a detour. Partly because I have a lot of fond memories of museums and field days. I had a hard time containing myself to 51 words.

I hope you like my 50-word stories. Please feel free to comment and share. And don’t forget to pop over to RagTag and see what other writers did with Field Day.
