I had a blast playing the writing game hosted by The Final Twist! Reading the fun flashes others posted during the week, training my synapses, and using the prompts to write daily all inspired me. If you weren’t able to play, go check out the post at www.TheFinalTwist.Wordpress.com! Here’s what I came up with from the prompts:
Monday: Full Moon
Stars, lights, bangles, music; a full moon on an overcast night. Mardi Gras dreams.
Tuesday: The Gift
Cradling my wife’s fragile hand, I lay beside her in silence. No more hospital alarms. The first gift of our marriage sat upon her finger, the last delivered as I join her in eternal rest.
Wednesday: Bad Resolution
What-ifs filled her mind, but the resolution remained buried six feet under a headstone. She’d visit again next year, to assure herself he remained that way.
The photo album closed slowly, its cover becoming the lid of a different coffin.
1001 ideas, not a single one worthy to post.
The last day summarizes it all. The struggle for the perfect, concise story. But maybe if I learned and grew a little, those 1001 miss-steps will lead to a beautiful new dance.
Let me know if you’d like to play the game here!
