Howdy my friends! Welcome to Friday Fictioneers, where participants start participating on Wednesday! Just one of those things that started way back when, who knows why but has become the status quo. Kinda like how expressions get twisted over time and have nothing to do with the original meaning! The important thing is, we gather ’round the weekly photo prompt to come up with some kind of interesting (we hope) or different (we really hope) story in 100 words or less. Must be a good challenge because we come back week after week! Should you wish to join in on the fun (read: addiction), click on Rochelle‘s name – yes, the name you just read – she is our fearless leader and official cat herder. She explains the whole howzit of this game. Or, if you are still to shy, but want to see what others have come up with, click on the blue frog to see who did what! Thank you to Claire Sheldon for supplying this week’s photo – bet you were surprised to find yours here, eh? He he he…
Genre: Fiction – or is it?
Word Count: 100 – always and forever. It’s doable, you should try!
She sat at her desk and stared into space. So. Much. Shit. To. Do. Laundry, vacuuming, toilet-scrubbing (blech!), window, weeding, groceries… the list never ends, is on repeat with more added! Day after day, same crap, different pile. Is this all there is? How the hell do I get off this redundant hamster wheel?
Her gaze dropped to the clutter that was her desk. She grabbed pens and paper and started drawing (best she could, she was no Rochelle), cutting and pasting ideas, creating a vision board.
Just because this is today’s reality, doesn’t mean it has to remain so!
