Love this photo prompt from Jean L. Hays; it offers so many options and possible directions to go. I am opting to be intentionally vague; this could be any number of situations. Thanks to the intrepid Rochelle Wisoff-Fields, who wrangles this weekly group of Flashers. Check out the photo and write a 100-word (or less); then spend some time reading the stories that the Fictioneers write. This is one of my favorite things I do each week! Join the fun or find the other stories on Rochelle’s blog, Addicted to Purple.
As always, constructive, honest feedback is welcome. Leave a comment; I’d love to hear what you think. Happy New Year Y’all!
I’ll Take Your Word (99 words)
“Where do we begin?”
“Honestly, I don’t know what to say.”
“I don’t either, but if we can just try to get back on track, I can live with that.”
“It’s complicated. Where do we start?”
“Isn’t this a start? Aren’t we starting right now?”
“This? We haven’t done anything yet.”
“Well, I don’t know what it should look like, but this seems as good a place to start as anywhere.”
“I want to believe that, but what does ‘on track’ even mean?”
“We’re talking; we’re listening; we’re sitting with our feet in the fire. That’s where we begin.”
