A thief in the night

Here is my practice prompt for the day!

Five Sentence Fiction – Thief

I jerked awake. The sound of pressure on the third stair echoed through the silent house. Jake heard it too. I reached for my phone as he took chase. Jake’s loud bark followed the pounding footsteps of the would-be thief.

Want to bust through summer boredom?

Sometimes I need to shake up my writing a bit.

A writing prompt here or there does that for me.

Thanks to some fabulous bloggers that provide the links, the prompts and the communities I’m able to practice my skills.

So dust off your keyboard, blow out the cobwebs from your mind, set your butt in a chair and head over to with one of their prompts and get rid of those summertime writing blues.

Pick your poison, from 5 sentences to well you decide. You might be surprised where one seed of an idea might lead.

I know I’ve listed some of these before, and I’m interested in finding more. So if you know about one I’ve missed, please tell me in the comments section. I’m always looking for fresh ideas.

Remember the Good Times

“No, I don’t remember. There’s only so much room in my brain, something has to go.”

That’s my go-to answer for when I don’t remember shit, for when I’ve forgotten names, birthdays or to pay the bills.

I wish I could select which memories to throw away and which ones to store for safe keeping. If I could, I’d make sure just happy memories filled my mind, because everyone should remember the good times.

True Love Waits

Thanks to Lillie McFerrin Writes

She waited and listened, sitting in the same chair for hours. The road remained silent and empty, just like the last year of her life.

Another day gone, one day left, his letter said this week. Her hand trembled as she moved to close the window and shut out the cool night air.  In the distance, a cloud of dust clouded her vision and she ran to meet her love half-way.
