Six Sentence Sunday 07/10 #35

I love this time of year. The weather does crazy things and the leaves go all sorts of pretty colours. ^_^ I’ll see if I can get some pictures.

Now the mad hump of September is over as well – with all those birthdays! – I can concentrate on whether or not anybody is going to get any Christmas presents this year. Oh and deal with my sister’s birthday too.

Anyway, as Autumn marks the close of the warmer months (yeah, as if we had much sun this year!) this post is the last post of my A-Z Flash Fiction samples. We’re now on ‘Z’ and the trigger word for this piece is ‘zebra.’

I can’t tell you what was in my mind when I wrote this. Sorry. I don’t even think I like it. I’m starting to feel that I was just so desperate to get to the end that I just wrote anything, and with that craziness in mind, this really WEIRD piece of writing came out. o.O I think its about someone actually conducting a study on why the chicken crossed the road.

*sigh* Yeah… I was tired that day.

~James really can’t believe what he’s hearing…

Reclined on the sofa, Andrew looked up from his newspaper. “Someone did a study.”

“A real study?”


A small cough of laughter spilled from James’s lips. “On why the chicken crossed the road?”

Well I wouldn’t believe him either. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get chickens to do anything on cue? :p

Enjoy the other authors taking part this week (use the banner link) and I’ll catch you next time!

Six Sentence Sunday

About Ileandra Young

I'm a thirty-*mumbles* year old (purple loving, cheese worshipping) author of fantasy, juggling a pair of beautiful twin boys with my burning desire to make up stories and write them all down. When I get the chance, I play games, listen to music, and in days long past I even ran a radio show. Though I occasionally write non-fiction, my heart lives in fantasy and my debut novel, Silk Over Razor Blades is now available through Amazon along with part two of the trilogy, Walking The Razor's Edge.

    I’m sure there are so many September birthdays because 1) there’s a lot of partying going on 9 months before and 2) it’s getting cold in December. What better way to keep warm? 😉


  2. Well, that’s a lot of flash fiction to write, and someone needs to do a study on why the chicken crossed the road. I think it’s cute! 🙂

      It won’t be too long before I post the whole piece of flash. It needs some heavy editing though since, looking back on it, I’m not sure it makes a great deal of sense!
