Angling Fiction

3-line flash fiction for 3LineTales

Angling was a means to get away from his day-to-day grind; he kept their images in his mobile device.

The predator used a pole to make it real, catching targets at a steal.

He then ate his prey, but no one knew; he boiled the bones in a brew and tossed them in the bay.

A bit about usage:

While a writer might be interested in use of the word “sedulity” or any of its forms in their narratives or subject matters, they probably wouldn’t use it anywhere else.

Along that vein, a writer who’s writing web content (esp. editor) isn’t likely to use any form of this term, for various reasons—especially in titles and tags. Instead, they would use more common synonyms, such as diligence.

Do what you like, of course.

Forms of the term sedulity:

Sedulous people are not the sedate or sedentary sort. They’re the hardworking types Scottish author Samuel Smiles must have had in mind when he wrote in his 1859 book Self-Help, “Sedulous attention and painstaking industry always mark the true worker.”
