Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo prompt.
Michael had his first completed movie script. I just need to get noticed, he thought. Looking up, he saw . . . ? That glare! It hampered his view. He got up on his knees in the booth, peering through the wine bottles.
Is that George Lucas coming into the restaurant? This is it, Michael thought, my big chance.
“Sir, please don’t lean against the —,” the waiter said, touching Michael on the shoulder, startling him.
“Yikes!” Michael said, pushing his weight forward, in surprise. The wine rack teetered, bottles crashing to the floor.
Michael looked around. Everyone had noticed.

I noticed that this is a great little story. 😆
Like he said…great story
Well there’s getting noticed and then there’s getting noticed. Enjoyable story. Well done.
Haha! Well, one must be careful what one wishes for!
Absolutely! For a while, I considered using the title “Careful What You Wish For” for this story. Plenty of opportunities for that title, as life seems to teach us that lesson over and over and over.
Lights, camera, and a lot of action! Getting noticed alright. Good ending.
And then he burst into song,
“Celebrate good times, uh-hah!”
Dear Tresha, what a great story! It made me laugh. Thank you for that. LHN
