Since the NYC Flash Challenge started I’ve had nothing but amazing and fun ideas. It could be the incredible talent of my competitors or maybe it’s the varied prompts in which I find my inspiration. Who knows, but without fail I have come up with the bones of something I’m itching to write about. Surprisingly, my favourite ones have most randomly occurred to me whilst I was washing my face before bed. My muse lives in the bathroom sink.
I want to write them so badly…
But I can’t, because it would be just my luck that the next round of the contest would perfectly fit the most brilliant of my ideas. So we have to wait for the moments to pass us by and work on some longer pieces. Maybe revisit some old ones.
In the meantime, along with my sink dwelling muse, I have picked up a new and permanent friend who will accompany me everywhere I go.
I think we’ll call her Alice.
