Dream Big, Dream Often #carrotranch #flashfiction

Charli Mills’ prompt this week is

March 22, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story using the theme “follow your dreams.” Bonus points for throwing a badge into the tale. Go where the prompt leads.

‘Do you dream, Logan?’

‘Everyone dreams, Morgan.  It’s the brain processing stuff.’

‘Clearing out the crap?’

‘If you like.’

‘Like the bowels?’

‘Not exactly.’

‘I only ask because I was asked today if I wanted to follow my dreams.’


‘I’m not sure I want to.’


‘Take my cousin Killick. His dream involved a dwarf and fourteen bananas.’

‘Why fourteen?’

‘He had a Snow White fixation.’

‘Moving on, following you dreams is meant to be a positive.’

‘So’s having a good crap.’

‘There you go. No one said every pot of gold was full of chocolate.’

‘Very deep.’

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    Some dreams are best left unsaid or quickly flushed! These two have taken off and who knows where they will lead us.
