Imagine Something Witty Here
I’m glad that we’re slowly heading towards Spring. I know Winter is a necessary evil but when it’s gloomy and dreary, the only thing I want to do is curl up under the covers where it is nice and warm and nap. And when I win the lotto, that’s what I’m going to do. I’m going to hibernate. That sounds awesome. (And the lotto is such a dream to hit it right now). I can dream, right?
First, have some flash fiction. As of now, you still have two hours to participate in Flash! Friday.
Sandy jerked awake, catching the edge of the chair before she tumbled out of it. She had thought that dinner was kind of big but then…She wasn’t at her aunt’s for dinner. She was in a field. A field full of chairs that sat empty.
“Crap. Crap crap crap.” She didn’t know what was going on. The last thing she remembered was feeling sleepy.
“Okay, get it together. Maybe this was some really weird realistic dream?” She glanced around, standing up. “I really hope so.” She paused before pinching her arm as hard as she could. “Ow.”
“Boo.” The low voice rumbled behind her.
Sandy screamed like the girl she was and spun around, stumbled back and fell on her ass onto the ground, staring at the dapper man as he pulled the top hat down over his eyes.
Of the brief glimpse she had of them, she could have sworn they were bright red.
“Welcome, welcome. Ms. Hale, if you would be so kind as to come with me, you can wait with the others.”
“What others?” Sandy was confused.
The man gave a wide grin as a tail wrapped around one leg. “All in due time, dear lady.”
There are six days and two hours until my mini-NaNo is over and I have about eight thousand words to get in between now and next Friday. The past two days I was run down and tired and did ZERO writing. I know, I know. That was bad. Even at work, I haven’t been able to write really since I was busy at meetings. I’m hoping to fix that this weekend and next week and get at least to the 25k mark. As of now, I’m just a little bit over the 17k mark. And I’ve written about 500 words in half an hour. I need to keep up that momentum as well as character profiles for all the stories that I have bouncing around.
How a great weekend.
(I’ll think about posting a recipe this weekend since I forgot about it Wednesday.)
