  1. I tried forever to leave the below comment on your flash fiction – Humble Pie. Something just wasn’t clicking for me…

    I am not a writer Karen. I just kinda put words together as they pop into my head. But I do love short stories. I’ve commented at times on being a lazy writer, and reader too. I want to get the gist and move on. I guess they’re many out there like me, especially in today’s technology driven frenzy. I can imagine that collections of flash fiction would sell easily. Your questions pose good food for my thoughts. I’ll be looking back at my writing to see what my style is. And if there is a forming collection somewhere.

    Cheers and thanks for sharing. Lovely story BTW :)

    Below is my entry into the prompt, “This Day in History”

    Remembrance of that Day in Infamy

    That morning was like any other
    sleepless, hot, inside the ships’ quarters.
    A. buzz sounds overhead
    as he begins his days duties
    Sirens sound, voices cry out.
    He scrambles to deck, choking on smoke.
    Without thinking, he finds himself in water,
    pulling an injured mate beside him.
    For fifty years the nightmare comes.
    The orange ball of fighter planes.
    The screams of agony everywhere.
    Deafening explosions, fire, confusion.
    He gasps, heart racing,
    awakened by the dream.
    Today, he walks upon that beach,
    tranquil, solemn, deep in thought.
    On this day, he will end the nightmare,
    bury the anger, shed a last tear.
    He touches the name of his fallen friend,
    etched in stone, the memory
    frozen in his mind forever.
    Once young, strong, invincible,
    his body now shows the scars of time.
    He looks up as the flag whips in the wind,
    stands at attention, straight and tall again.
    He turns and salutes, wipes that last tear,
    And walks slowly to the woman
    who waited then and is waiting still.
