Friday Potatoes

I’ve found a fantastic blog created by Esther Newton. It’s really worth checking out. She posts all sorts of useful information for writers, and has several fun features, one of them being a weekly challenge, which this week is to write a 10 word story including the words ‘Friday’ and ‘Potato’. How could I resist? I have decided to share my 3 efforts here.


One potato to last until Friday,
but we have rice.

I work Monday to Friday.
I’m a couch potato

Caviar and champagne on Friday.
Saturday to Thursday; potato soup.

    1. Thank you. That’s the one I like best. Between me and you, I don’t like champagne and have no desire for caviarre, but I love potato soup.
      I think I’ve just ruined the whole effect!


    1. You only have to do one. I got carried away, as usual – like when I did the prompt which challenged us to write something, cutting out one letter of the alphabet. I got totally carried away that time.


      1. I hope I get some time to give this one some thought. However, since I still don’t have installment # 4 for my current online story done — and my creative writing classes are closing in on the end of the term — I may have to wait until one of the other weeks. If we could just get some 28-hour days, I’d be okay.
