Fandango’s Story Starter #47

It’s time for my weekly Story Starter prompt. Here’s how it works. Every Tuesday morning (my time), I’m going to give you an incomplete “teaser” sentence and your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to build a story (prose or poetry) around that partial sentence. It doesn’t have to be the first sentence in your story, and you don’t even have to use it in your post at all if you don’t want to. The purpose of the teaser is simply to spark your imagination and to get your storytelling juices flowing.

This week’s Story Starter teaser is:

Steven was weary from constantly searching the horizon, and he thought maybe his eyes were playing tricks on him when he saw…

If you care to write and post a story built from this teaser, be sure to link back to this post and to tag your post with #FSS. I would also encourage you to read and enjoy what your fellow bloggers do with their stories.

And most of all, have fun.

    a mermaid (naked) flipping across the water (like a stone ).

    Steven said shit my eyes are playing tricks on me…

    No she said, I am real. And naked. Come and flip across the water with me.

    Being a male he dove in.

    And lived happily ever after (and had lots of mermaids/mermen)

    This’d make a nice children’s story Fan…….’The Oceanic Adventures of Steven’

        I thought so too. Publishers not interested. Doesn’t sell. Give us some doom and gloom, guns and mass shootings. What’s the world coming to Fan?…..
