So… I couldn’t get my thoughts in line for Wednesday so here I am on a Thursday evening, presenting my Friday Fictioneers story. Funny how you can come up with a title and an idea and then once your fingers hit the keyboard, they go off in a totally different direction. Had to change my title as it no longer applied. I think that was the hardest part! Oh well… Welcome to the craziness that is Friday Fictioneers, as always, hosted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields of Addicted to Purple, author, artist, sound-bite fiction expert… And this week’s photo is none other than our Sandra Crook, another fabulous and published author. I feel that by surrounding myself with all these talented people, they will rub off on me…

Word Count: 100
Chaos has returned to this house
Will. It. Never. End?
All are speaking to each other in a quasi-civil manner
Then, just as things start to really run smoothly
The glass has tipped and it all starts over again
How long has this been going on? she wonders
Have I been caught in some never-ending loop?
As she feels herself being sucked in once more
She takes a deep breath
She crouches down into a small ball.
And with every ounce of strength she can find
She jumps up, fists raised, and shatters the glass
As I was writing this, I was inspired by an animation my goddaughter, Kellie Kiakas, did in College. Thought I would share it with you!
