This is my first attempt at the Bookshelf Gargoyle’s Fiction in 50 (words) Writing Challenge. Each month he posts a writing prompt for us, and in the last week he asks us to link up our offerings.
This month’s prompt was: A Dawning Realisation
And this is what I made of it.
I flounced out of the house yelling, “I’ll do it tonight!” to those left behind.
Voices called after me.
Go to hell, I thought, and squeezed through the closing doors onto the bus.
People stared. One sniggered. I sat, glaring out of the window.
The seat was cold.
Exactly 50 words – not bad for my first attempt.

While you savour that… I’m delighted to announce a new review of The Traveler in Black and White, by Carrie Slager, the Mad Reviewer. Why not hop over to her blog and admire it?
