42 Flash Challenge Part Deux Day 15

It’s strange, I keep feeling like I’m not living up to the challenge.  I haven’t posted anything on the prompts in a while, I mean, I’ve written but not anything worth sharing… 

And then I realize… I’m writing the prompts.  I’m introducing them to the world, and telling a story of sorts.

Today’s Prompt:  Maybe it’s time to change the rules.

So, still overcoming inertia it would seem.  I have been writing– just not fiction or flash.  As I work on this, I find myself drifting back to my long form, which is a good thing.  I need to finish my stories.  Just as soon as I write a short story for another anthology.

Today’s Prompt: Finishing what you start

42 Flash Challenge Part Deux Day 7

I’ve been thinking about luck and the fact that sometimes your luck is simply a matter of perspective.  I was driving in the snow and didn’t have enough momentum to get up the hill.  Before I was able to to anything else, an oncoming vehicle was plowing straight towards my car.

I jumped into a ditch and watched as it passed my car, all the while waiting to hear the impact and see my car slide down the hill.

It didn’t happen.  I see that as being very lucky, but luckier would have involved not being there- and if I weren’t there… I’d never know how lucky I was… something to think about.

Today’s Prompt: Near miss
