Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Friday 55

Welcome to Friday 55. The object of the game is to write a story using exactly 55 words. If you participate, be sure to drop a comment at G-Man’s blog so others will know how to find your story.

I fall forward. The air that leaves my chest spirals dust in my face, little sand devils taunting me, begging me to stay down. I pull myself further from the hole, dirt falling from my legs as they drag behind me. I’m free, yet not. I’ve been summoned. The world will fear me once more.

I also wanted to remind everyone that I’m blogging over at Oh, Get a Grip! tomorrow. This week’s topic is Time Management or the lack there of as seems to be the case with most of us who work from home.

James? Is that a riddle????

Welllll... That may be.. Um...

So... when are you holding a contest at your blog in which I am going to win a book called 'Pixels & Pain' signed by the Author himself?????

lol, congrats on the Yahtzee. :D

wow, now that you mention it, it could be a tornado as well. That's cool I didn't even see the similarity.

When I wrote it, I was thinking of a zombie, lol.

Thanks for the different point of view. :D

I'll have to give the contest some thought. The e-book comes out Tuesday, but the print book won't come out for another 90 days. I'll keep you posted on the contest.
