Shenanigans - Five Sentence Fiction

Five Sentence Fiction

What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the inspiration word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just take your inspiration from that word. 

My first try at Five Sentence Fiction  - here goes!

Nanna had the best legs in the family, always encased in perfect hose. I inhaled the smell of lamb roast as I read, for the hundredth time, the Disiderata on her wall.
Grandad clomped in the back door from the garden, placed grubby hands on her aproned waist and spun her around. “Oh you and your shenanigans”, she giggled, flicking spilt salt over her Irish shoulder.
As he left the room, she turned to me and dropped her voice, “I never could resist a man with a twinkle in his eye”.


  1. This is lovely! I smiled the whole time I was reading it. Awesome that he still makes her 'giggle.'

  2. Thanks Lillie - I must confess I cheated a little with the fiction idea, writing about those you know is easier! (and sometimes therapeutic!)
    Love the Five Sentence idea and will try to come by weekly!

  3. Adorable story packed into five sentences. I love how he spins her around. Ahhh, romance. :)


Please leave me comments so I can develop my writing!
