Hello Readers, joining in with Carrot Ranch (HERE) flash fiction.
The prompt this week is to write a short fiction (99words) about GRIT.
First – here are some Monday Blooms that remind me of Grit
Here is my flash fiction for Grit:
Title: ANOTHER HIT
Fiction word count: 99
Stirred his tea
Pulled off his hat
Waited for his food
Midst of humdrum
hoping for new normal
Yet in view
To make it through
Sitting tall – rather than slouching
He forced a smile – avoiding grouching
Food set down
Sniffed the crust
“Thank you,” he said,
then chomped his bread
One day at a time…
Hard Knock’s Degree
Last sip of tea
Right after I drafted my fiction today – Brenda shared a post (here) on her blog – that fit right in with the GRIT theme.
Brenda just moved to France from Honk Kong and she shared about the GRIT it took.
“I am again reminded that the details of every day have a way of working out when you boil them down to simply doing the next thing.
It’s amazing how everything comes together in the end.”
Brenda’s words were in sync with some of what I was trying to share in my fiction today, Have you had another hit come your way? Be encouraged because you CAN wait it out – and take action when needed but sometimes we are forced to wait – and if so – we keep away the grouch – and then get busy doing the next thing. 🙂
