January 1st, 2017 – Day One

welcome to 42 flash challenge for 2017.

I’m a little late getting this up, but…

For those of you new to the challenge – it is based on  a friend (Michaela Eaves)’s 42 sketches challenge – the idea is that it takes 6 weeks to develop a habit – and if you’re going to build a habit, why not something creative – something that lets you express yourself and create something others can enjoy.

The other side of the challenge, of course — is for people who like to read – please join us for the next 6 weeks as we try to write a flash fiction a day –

If you’re writing, please share your stories either here or with a link – you con’t have to use the prompt – if you’re writing for something else -please feel free to share it here.

If you’re reading, please leave comments – this challenge is about growing as a writer.

Grinches and trolls need not apply.

Today’s prompt: Beginnings

Author: mtdecker

Just your average writer- which is to say, I have a full-time job developing and testing software.

One thought on “January 1st, 2017 – Day One”

  1. It starts with a breath, letting go of all expectations until nothing else remains but the possibility that exists when the infinite combines with the finite wisdom of dreams. One moment there is nothing and the next all things exist.

    Each culture has tried to define it, to name it and somehow control it – but the very nature of the future makes it no more tangible than smoke. Call it what you will, prana, om… the big bang… it is nothing more than a breath.

    It is as essential as breathing: inspiration.

    (more poetry than prose… but it’s a beginning)
