Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers: Inspiration Struck


Sue never imagined she’d become famous, never dreamed her porcelain sculpture would be on display in multiple museums, one after another, pleading her to loan them her art. In fact, whenever her friends ask how her art career’s going, she’d sigh and say, “I’d be lucky if I can sell one painting.”

That was before inspiration struck Sue like lightning.

She was in her favorite coffee shop, sipping black-coffee while surfing the net for inspiration. “Refill?” Her friend and barista, Kylie, asked, holding a pot of coffee.

Sue shrugged, “Sure.”

“Still looking for inspiration?” Kylie asked, filling Sue’s mug with steamy hot coffee.

Just then, a loud crash sounded from the back of the shop. Sue bolted up from her seat, “Whoa, what was that?” Kylie set the pot on the table and headed to investigate with Sue behind her.

“Bad dog!” Sue heard Rubio, the baker, shout as they entered the kitchen. On the floor was a small white dog nibbling on a doughnut.

Sue gasped, “Oh my god, I got art to make.”
