I squeezed, nothing. I pressed again, still nothing. Now, I was getting desperate
This week’s Friday Fiction Writing Prompt is about frustration. Now you might feel there is enough frustration when you sit down and try to write, but being able to describe frustration in your writing is a good skill.
The saying states that bad workmen blame their tools. Here, you are not a bad workman, the tool of your trade has let you down. You’re pressing a button, squeezing a trigger, trying to turn something on? The choice is yours. The prompt is how to describe the frustration the narrator is having. They might need to fire a gun, they might need to call a lift to escape, they might be behind on preparing that special meal for that special someone – whatever you choose, there is frustration: describe it.
No word count limits or other rules, apart from enjoying a little writing. But don’t get too frustrated if that button on the computer doesn’t respond straight away.
