“The Wrong Trousers” ~ My First Fantastic Friday Fiction Offering…

Friday Fiction The Wrong Trousers blog

So here’s the thing.  I needed inspiration for my first fantastic friday fiction offering.  I wanted to write a piece of fiction for Friday Fiction (a linky run by fellow blogger Nicola Young that I’m new to and am keen to join in with).  I mused on how to flex my creative muscles (in between working on my #NextBigThing project) and it came to me in a blinding flash of well, inspiration!…

You see each week I choose a Footnote & Anecdote from my desk diary and I’ve decided to do an experiment 😉 I do love an experiment!  Each Friday I will share a short piece of fictional writing (obviously!) that has been inspired by the ‘Footnote’ that I chose the previous Monday for my blog linky.

And here it is:  (I would like to unreservedly apologise to Nikki for lowering the tone for Friday Fiction with a bit of a ‘damp squid’ of a limerick – I describe it as that genre very loosely and it is my first effort at a limerick – but I set myself the challenge and was determined to keep to it!)

The wrong trousers

There was a young man with a thought so appealin’

Who wanted to fight for truth and for freedom,

His trousers best, better than all the rest,

But he went starkers n’ decided he didn’t need ’em…

‘inspired’ by the quote “You should never have your best trousers on when you go out and fight for freedom and truth.” – Henrik Ibsen, 1828-1906, Norwegian playwright

Next week I will fair better, I absolutely promise…
