#AtoZChallenge: Fate (tiny tale #13)

He emerged from the gutters, smiling to himself.
Fishing out the 100 rupee note was worth getting his only shirt covered in dirt.
Fate had led him to his first square meal in two days.

I have said this once, I’ll say it again – #NeverWasteFood

On a lighter note, do check this new brand new cover of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You” – If the song was about food wastage!

I have decided to join my fellow bloggers Sue and Melanie in displaying “a list of all the fiction-based A to Zs on all of our blogs, and thus engage in the ancient art of Online Cross-Promotion.” (in Melanie’s own words)

So if you yourself happen to be an A-to-Zer, who’s writing any form of fiction for this challenge, please leave a comment and let me know. I’ll definitely include your blog in my next AtoZ post. You are, of course, welcome to join us in this effort to promote fellow A-to-Zers who are also writing fiction! 🙂

Here’s my list of fiction-based A to Z blogs:

I have added the links to their very first AtoZ post. Do visit and read 🙂

Keith’s blog where he writes delightful tales about the fictitious village of Amble Bay.

Marquessa’s blog where writes a fictional short story series about her character Kate’s adventures in Hawaii.

  1. Wow! So much of a story in three short sentences. Each week I link up to a Six Sentence Story bloghop. Maybe you’d like to join in sometime. The host offers a cue each Sunday and the linkup is open on Thursday through the following Tuesday. unchartedblogdotorg.wordpress.com

  2. Hi, Shweta! Your tribute to stay-at-home parents is beautiful. Why do we undervalue what is probably the most important work in anyone’s life — not only the parents themselves, but also the children who benefit.

    1. No, sadly no. We do tend to take it for granted. Thank you so much, Shailaja ji. I love reading your works! So happy that I discovered your blog. The pleasure’s all mine. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by.


  3. Oh! The value of that 100 rupee note has quatripled in this poor man’s hands. You have become ‘The tiny tale’ narrator, Shweta (Checked and double checked that I got your name right this time 😉 and that the auto correct did not come in the way)

    1. Wow. Thank you so much! Glad to know you liked it! And thanks a ton for getting my name right. 😍😊 I’m so happy that you checked and double checked! Oh yes, auto correct always tries to correct my name to sheets. 😂😂😂
