78/100 Days of Creativity: Strawberry Fields Forever

Ringo, Paul, John and the other fella were sitting in their local cafe mulling over an arrangement John had been mucking around with. The cafe was busy with people stopping by to chat every so often and it provided a welcome distraction.

John overheard a waitress refer a customer to the strawberry bank for additional napkins and this made him think of the children’s home near where he lived. Maybe with a different arrangement and a couple of tweaks here and there it could work. John hustled the guys back to the studio to try a new version.


For 100 consecutive days I will write and post a short story (about 100 words) incorporating a randomly selected word from Afterliff: A new dictionary of things there should be words for.

Today’s word:
strawberry bank n.
Unmanned cafe counter where they keep the sugar, spoon and napkins.

Tomorrow’s word:
quetico n.
The tiny speech bubble that pops up when an empty text is sent.
