Writing Exercise #5: Fly on the Wall

“I wish I was a fly on the wall” is a common expression that you have probably heard before. Usually, the person who says it is wishing that they could be hidden in a room, eavesdropping on a conversation that may or may not be any of his business. No one ever worries what they are talking about when a fly is in the room, but maybe they should…

Your writing assignment (should you choose to accept it) is to write a story from the perspective of a fly. Be the fly on the wall. Flap your wings. Buzz your buzz. And listen to a very secret conversation. What happens next? (Hopefully, it doesn’t involve a flyswatter!)
