Twittering Tales — The Note

“I found it sitting under a rock on a bench in the park,” I answered. “It seems to be written in German, so I brought it here. Can you tell me what it says?”

“You need to take this to the police,” he told me. “It’s a suicide note.”

By the way, the note appears to be written in German. I can’t read German, so for all I know, it could be a love letter, a “Dear John” letter, or maybe even a rough draft for a blog post. But for some reason, I came up with a suicide note.

    Weird putting a suicide note in the park. The decision must have been instantaneous. Huh, Sensei?

    I stumbled across your blog by chance just now…I’ve been an analytical writer and blogger focusing on nonfiction essays, but I want to get back into fiction, which is, I think, my natural medium. I never thought of doing fiction like this before…but I think it might be just what I need to get back into that mode of creativity. This piece was particularly effective!

      I’m glad you found my blog. I really enjoy writing flash fiction posts and there are so many other bloggers who post various prompts to stimulate the imagination. Thanks for reading. I look forward to what kinds of creative fiction you come up with.
