Thanks to Lillie McFerrin for reminding me to practice, practice, practice. Sometimes I get so busy with my WIP, and life in general, that I forget how important it is to practice my writing.
Five Sentence Fiction is a great place to do just that. So again, a big thank you to Lillie.
If you are looking for a place to work on your skills check out FSF.
Below is my Five Sentence contribution this week. Enjoy.
Let me know how you practice. Do you have a favorite site or routine? Leave a comment and the link. Thanks.
What it’s all about: Five Sentence Fiction is about packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week I will post a one word inspiration, then anyone wishing to participate will write a five sentence story based on the prompt word.
The word does not have to appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.
This week: ANCHOR
All week people came to attend the celebrations.
They honored her with words like groundbreaking, innovative and pioneer.
She accepted their admiration; after all, she’d worked long hours to arrive at this pinnacle in life.
She’d dodged bullets, survived mergers and interviewed presidents.
As she listened to her well-meaning friends, she grew weary from the weight of her accomplishments, and now she just wanted to go home.

A very human story. Well done take on the prompt.
Thank you so much.
A nice, bittersweet snapshot.
Yes, but sometimes that’s life.
I’m so glad you liked it. Thanks for stopping by.
