Last week I set the following Challenge:
Hello everyone and welcome to my new “Fiction in A Flash Challenge!” Each week I’ll be featuring an image and inviting you to write a Flash Fiction or Non-Fiction piece inspired by that image in any format and genre of your choosing. Maximum word count: 750 words.
Here is the image prompt and the contribution.
Time to turn the clock back, stealing time from us.
That’s what the ticking clock does, a slow-moving thief.
First you wonder where your youth disappeared to
Then middle age brings on the moody moments too often.
Old age, God bless us.
No one warned us how hard for some of us it could be.
Aches and pains in places you never heard of in your youth.
I can hear those lucky ones, fit in mind and body,
Saying life is good. Well, bully for you
Not all of us are as lucky…
