Ending It

“So what did you tell them?”

“Who?” She kept her gaze on the countryside outside her car window. Everything was blurry and muted, like her life at the moment.

“Your parents, dummy.”

“Right.” She sighed. “I told them we were going to a bookstore across town. They have no idea I left town.”

“Are you sure you want to do this? We could take care of this baby ourselves.”

“We can’t take care of a baby, Sean. Just … don’t. I’ve made up my mind.”

“It’s not too late to turn back.”

She pointed to the sign, –Exit 181, 1/2 mile ahead-.

“This is it.”





Write up to 100 words, fact or fiction….

This is a themed writing meme hosted by Jenny Matlock. The goal is to write something that does not exceed 100 words (not including said prompt). The prompt is in italics above.

A to Z Challenge

A is for Action

And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing lately -ACTING on my dreams and goals.

One of the words I had deemed in My Three Word Goals for 2011 was ACTION. I have so much I want to get done and I’m sick of talking about it – I’m focusing on ACTING on them.

What are those goals, you ask?

Get a job. I’ve been actively filling out applications. I had an interview for one job, but I wasn’t picked, unfortunately. (Or fortunately. It might have been a blessing in disguise, quite honestly). I’ve worked at home for the past seven years and I’m ready to get back out into the working world and do something different. I don’t have anything specific in mind, I’m keeping my options open, but I’m just ready to put myself back out into the working world and be productive once again.

Expand my website business. I build websites for schools (I’m super cheap because we all know schools don’t have a lot of money). I’ve been doing it for the past six years and LOVE it. Even though I don’t charge that much, that’s okay, I look at more as my way of giving back to the community.

My writing. I’ve talked about getting published for YEARS (actually DECADES) now, it’s time to do something about it. I’m currently participating in Script Frenzy (only I’m being a rebel, along with many others, and treating it as more of a National Novel Writing Month challenge and writing a novel instead of a script), along with pouring over possible writing markets to see where else I might submit my writing. I’ll get something published, (other than my blog, of course), mark my words.

Thanks for stopping by! Leave a link to your A to Z challenge below. I’m looking forward to visiting other participants! *wave*

And I’ve bitten off more than I can chew – again.

I’m participating in the A to Z challenge (I’m a day behind, but will soon catch up). You can sign up for the challenge here. Just post something every day with the appropriate letter (except for Sundays), and then submit your link to one of the hosts and don’t forget to visit other participants! Also, you can find other A to Z participants on Twitter via the #atozchallenge hashtag. (Keep your posts short – not more than 500 words – to make it easy on visitors. I think there were about 1100 participants the last time I checked).
