Big kudos to Rochelle and my fellow participants, for the awesome write-up this week, by WordPress about Friday Fictioneers. All of the praise and positive words were well-deserved. Rochelle does an amazing job each week, and I am incredibly grateful for this weekly opportunity to hone my writing, and share my work with a stellar group of writers! This is, by far, one of my favorite things each week! Bravo Rochelle and Friday Fictioneers! Participants are encouraged to write a 100 word story, with a beginning, middle and end, based on a photo prompt. Thank you to Erin Leary, for this week’s photo. Visit Rochelle at Addicted to Purple, to join the fun and/or read the other stories.
I apologize for my inability to read other stories last week. I was at my son’s college graduation from Thursday through Tuesday, and found myself with virtually no free time and limited wifi! I really appreciate all of the kind feedback on my own story, and promise to read as many as possible this week, as I usually do. Thanks to all of you who stopped by; I always welcome constructive feedback.
(100 words, exactly)
“Thinking about my other relationships, they all seem foggy and unclear.”
Sarah leaned in, and took a drag of her cigarette.
“I don’t smoke anymore… sometimes I just crave one.”
She exhaled, watching the smoke circle her head in the large mirror.
“Josh is different. He’s so stable– the road with him is straight; the future’s clear. He’s different than anyone I’ve ever been with… normal.”
She set her cigarette in the dirty ashtray.
“Hey darlin’, no judgment, but if you’re so happy with this Josh, what are you doing here?”
He smiled, poured another drink, and wiped the bar.
