A Triple F Based On My Own Experience

Which you can read about here, but pull me back before I get ahead of myself.

Okay, this is simple. Broken water filtration system fixed. Yay. Which leads me to the old idea for a new Fabulous Fiction Friday/Triple F prompt for this week:

Your story (or poem, if you like those) must contain the following line:

He couldn’t believe it was finally fixed.

Now it’s the best part—generating ideas about how to mix this up.

Who is he? A man? A dog? An alien? Or maybe a robot alien dog (I must have robots on the brain this week)?

What is it? Maybe it’s a car. Or a bike. (There’s those blasted machines again). Or a relationship (although that may stretch the definition of “it,” depending on the context of your fiction).

“Fixed” implies something broke (physically, emotionally, what-have-ya). Okay. But “finally” implies that “he” tried and failed to fix “it.”

And then we have “believe.” Was it that he fixed it before, and didn’t think it would work? Or that something blocked him from believing it was fixed, and something cleared up—so now he CAN believe it?

Was it fixed all along, and he just came to the realization that he only thought it was broken?

How to put the three primary elements together (him, fix, it—I sound like a caveman) is up to you.

Only one more week to October! Oof, where did the month end up?

Before we close out for the weekend (you know I enjoy saying it)…

Make it a great weekend, with awesome memories, all right?

Until next time,
