Neon Impressions #AtoZChallenge

This year, for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I'm writing Micro Fiction (or Flash Fiction) that is 100 words or less around a set list of words provided by my BFF (Kemari Howell). Today's letter is "N", so today N is for Neon. 

Neon Impressions

The cameraman followed Nicole’s every move as she prepared for the night’s date with Bachelor Number One, “Try to pretend I’m not here,” He said.

“That’s easier said than done,” she smiled, curling her hair.

The night was a disaster—Bachelor Number One talked too much about himself, insisted that they split the check, and put the moves on her in the parking lot. In her reflection, Nicole said, “What a waste of time! I think his shoes made more of an impression.”

“His shoes?” The cameraman asked.

“They were neon green.”

“No. My shoes are.”

“Oh.” She blushed.


Feel free to leave your short pieces of fiction (<100 words) in the comments below. The word for today is Neon.


  1. That is very cute! I'm trying to visit all the A-Z Challenge Blogs this month. My alphabet is at

  2. Haha, had to say I giggled at this. I actually duct taped my shoes neon purple in high school. For some reason, people thought this was so cool!

  3. What a great piece, thanks for sharing.
