The following photo is the PHOTO PROMPT. What do you see? Don’t be afraid to step outside the confines of the box. Use your imagination.
My unstory will follow the prompt and the blue frog link. 😉
Word Count: 99
The story you are about to read is true. No names have been changed to protect the innocent.
THE ULTIMATE COP OUT
“It’s a fantastic prompt,” I tell Doug.
“I’ll take history for $30,” I mumble as I read an article about Roald Amundsen, the first person to reach the South Pole.
After days of edits, illustrations, full time job issues and insomnia, my busy brain, swirling with a thousand-thoughts-a-minute, is at a loss for a flash fiction.
Word came this week that my novel is going to be released in two weeks. So soon? I just sent the manuscript back to the publisher and I’m still writing acknowledgements.
“Another time, Roald.” I click out of Wikipedia. “No story this week.”
It’s true. For the first time in three years, I didn’t have the head space to write a story. I hope you’ll find it in your hearts to forgive me. Last week I received an email from my publisher with the following notice:
Beginning on April 20 Please Say Kaddish For Me will be available to preorder from Kindle in ebook form and to preorder from http://www.a-argusbooks.com/GalleryComing.htm in print form. Release date scheduled for May 8.
