A Crinkle in Plans

Here are my micro fiction's for Three Word Wednesday this week. Let me know which one you like best.

Story 1:

A crinkle formed on Charlie’s brow as he tried to navigate the busy intersection. A sudden demand from his GPS system turned the crinkle to an outright frown when he came to a stop just before hitting a newly constructed building.

Story 2:

It’s hard to navigate the twisting roads of a relationship. So many demands and mistakes put a crinkle in the love of even the best couples.

Story 3:

“I want crinkle fries,” was the demand Abby made while she and her mom navigated the frozen food section. “They hold ketchup better.”

Great job and use of the prompt trio and to top it all off you have created a trio of tales!

Nice play of the three words, I like curly fries in Arby's, so crinkle fries should be good :-)

Angel said...

I do love these triptychs..they make perfect sense together somehow..as I read I thought the second was my favourite..and then I re-read and thought I couldn't choose..fantastic..you illustrate so much about life in so few words..Jae

Angel said...

Thank you so much for the nice words, Jae.

Have to say I like the third one best. Although I will add that it should be "She and her mother" as the subject of the clause or sentence. I liked the dialogue and the idea of a child demanding and being so self-assured about what was best in life. The first seemed to reach too hard to get the three words in, and I shudder to read about another's heart break. Too melodramatic usually for me. My heart has broken enough for me in this lifetime. I thoroughly liked that you wrote three quick glimpses into different stories using the prompts and asked commenters to pick one. It makes for a great blog read!

Angel said...

I will change that, Di. Thank you. I need an editor even for blog posts...lol
