by Belinda Munoz on October 8, 2010


from fictional pages, the endearing hero
began to inspire the readers. He
deftly opened minds, warmed cold hearts,
invoked humor, elicited kindness. He was
quite the love instigator. A beauty
architect. Anyone who read him was
converted. Much like the protagonist, his
audience found its groove. Fantasy shaped
reality. The author, predictably, was elated.


Mr. Linky is sticky.  This Friday, I’m back linking up with Six Word Fridays (topic: fantasy) and with 55 Flash Fiction Friday, a story in exactly 55 words.  For more #sixwordfridays, visit Making Things Up.  For more 55-word micro-fiction or #flashfiction, visit G-Man.


BONUS: I’m also guest posting at One Stop Poetry in the Dustus Friday Guest Spotlight section. Hope you’ll click over to read a new piece I wrote called Trust.

Beautiful Belinda… you are overflowing with creativity. I love this fantasy of fiction… there is a great shift in perspective from reading the poem, to reading about the hero, to reading about the author… excellent!

A beauty architect: high praise indeed!
A review fantasy for any author.
(Even the imaginary kind, one presumes.)

great idea to fuse the two exercises. so many of us out here can relate to your well put together words.
