I wasn’t quite sure where I wanted to go with this picture. It took a little mindless retail work to get the creative juices flowing. I hope this is different than all the other wonderful writers posting to Friday Fictioneers this week. This image was also used a couple of years ago, long before I joined the addiction. It’ll be interesting to see how this stacks up to those posts as well. No pressure, right? 😉 Oh, and photo copyright – Madison Woods
Okay. Without further ado and with hopes that I can keep up my flash fiction while also novel writing for CampNaNo, here it is.
Hide and Hide?
I was very close to losing my temper. We’d been at the exercise for almost three hours and I was no closer.
“It’s too hard. Let’s just move onto something else.”
“No, you can do this. You’re so close!”
“You said that an hour ago and I haven’t gotten any better. My blind Uncle Dave could spot me from across the street.”
“That’s not true. I could barely see facial features. One more try?”
“Okay.” I closed my eyes, harnessed energy, and visualized branches and leaves. “How’s that?”
“Umm. Maybe you’re right.”
“You have branches. And horns.”
I seem to be hit or miss with Friday Fictioneers, but here’s my next entry! I will probably be even more absent next month as July is another session of Camp NaNo and I very much need to start work on the cozy mystery series I keep threatening to write. Photo copyright – Mary Shipman
Cheryl worried about wiping away the remains of her childhood, destroying memories as sure as she was taking down the wall in the room. The home had been in the family for generations, each one adding to it without making major changes. Now she was breaking down walls, adding in modern amenities, throwing out old wallpaper and carpet. As much as she wanted to pass that down to the next generations, she couldn’t. For the sake of meeting damned standards of a neighborhood that built around her in the last twenty years, she had to gut everything and start fresh.
