What it’s all about: 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.

Offhandedly he stirred the Bolognese sauce one more time; it was the only dish he knew how to cook.
He reached for his car keys and with a deep sigh blew out the candle he’d placed on table; a wax fountain sprayed on the freshly laundered cloth.
