Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.This week it's all about the word "Lost." How can one be lost? What can be lost? What does it mean to be lost? There are just as many possible answers to this as there are people who can be asked. This entry is mine... I hope you like it.
