Hint Fiction: Prelude

I love bathrooms. Small, contained. Great for warming, sleeping, crying. Most people honor the closed door. No wonder I spent/d so much time in them.

Hint fiction is a prompt that challenges the writer to create a short fiction of 25 words that "hints" at something more complex beyond the words given. I am going to be experimenting with this form over the next few weeks, as an expressive adventure and a writing challenge, interspersed with my regular blog posting. Comment as you wish.... just thought I'd provide a bit of context. As always, I am delighted and humbled by the comments of  those quite generous writers who visit my blog. My thanks  and regards to you all.


  1. Interesting start and location. Let's see where this allows you to take us H. I like it so far.

  2. I love the concept - especially when it so often feels like I can't string together enough words to matter.

    ...and welcome to the sisterhood!

  3. Very interesting, and excellent start.

  4. You're lucky you can get in to the bathroom - My teenage sons (Heckle & Jeckle) have taken up residence in our bathroom.

  5. wm-- thanks for the encouragement; i am also interested in where it will take me! cheers
    intelliwench--welcome and thanks; i like using word limits and other prompts.... i'll see how it goes.
    echo-thanks for the visit and the encouragement
    pisces-- i laughed out loud at heckle and jeckle.... i don't know how i'd survive without bathrooms... maybe that says something about me? hmmm.... thanks for the visit.
