#FlashFiction Challenge for Carrot Ranch Literary Community… #Poetry




99 words, no more, no less. It’s a simple constraint, an easy-to-master literary art form, and a powerful writing tool for creatives and entrepreneurs. Writers calibrate the usefulness and beauty of 99-words through weekly flash fiction challenges.

January 30, 2020, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about a postal carrier in an extreme situation. Even if you base your story on a true one, focus on the core trait of this postal carrier. Go where the prompt leads!

para one


I have the best postman

No matter the weather

Rain or snow

Pushing his post trolley

Getting more snow

Around the wheels

As he goes

He’s not so young these days

Five-foot tall

I think he’s a superman

He has a shiny red nose

Like Rudolph

I decided to have a hot cup of tea

Waiting for him

Warm his back on my hall radiator

Thaw out for five minutes

We have a lot in common

Not least, my favourite place


It’s the one place he likes to take time off

No matter what the weather…
