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.

Her face, in contrast, was glowing, literally glowing with what seemed to be starlit silvery rays from her skin. Was she even human?
Sometimes inspiration comes from a single word, in a moment when you aren't thinking about writing at all...
