fi50The last week of the month see my contribution to Bruce Gargoyle’s Fiction in 50 words microfiction meme.

There’s no great sign-up or anything, you just join in whenever you feel like it.  You can see the details and get the prompts at the BookShelf Gargoyle’s blog, though.

This month the prompt is also my title (as usual).

Moving with the Times

Finally, she could untie those paper stacks John stored ‘for reference’.

Wrapping glasses and crockery in newsprint brought memories of John attempting the crosswords, dog at his feet.

She tossed the leftover stacks into recycling, and set off after the van.

Unpacking each box was punctuated with a fresh crossword.

    That is…beautiful. I’m still trying to figure out where I’m going with the prompt, but you nailed one direction I was considering (I knew I shouldn’t have read this until I wrote mine!).

      Yeah – just like book reviews, never read what the other person has said till you’ve at least started your own 🙂
