A MEMORIAL DAY FLASH FICTION

Leave a comment

The following is a Five Sentence Fiction I wrote back in November 2013 for Veterans Day in response to the prompt of “LETTERS” given to followers of a now defunct website “Five Sentence Fiction”

SADNESS IS CONTAGIOUS

LEslie sat in the den of her home crying.

The tears which came flowing over her cheeks weren’t ones of sadness, they were ones of the bittersweet remembrances she got as she read the LETTERS which her then future husband had sent her during his first assignment in the Middle East.

TEresa, Leslie’s daughter, sat by her mother’s side trying to console her, but to no avail.

Reluctantly Teresa started to read the LETTERS herself to see the reason for her mother’s dismay.

Sadness became infectious because these LETTERS allowed her to get to know the father she never knew, as she fell victim to the words in the LETTERS as well.

Your comments would be appreciated.

The above Flash Fiction is one of the 100 Flash Fictions contained in my book “Micro Fiction – An Anthology.” No link is being given as this is being given as an informational purpose.

AT LONG LAST my new computer is FINALLY up and running like a charm. I just added my last missing program the Adobe Reader late last night [Thursday, May 25th].

 

My KINDLE for PC reader APP how has its library totally restored and I can get back to my reading/reviewing of book; and according to GoodReads reading challenge I’m now 11 books behind schedule to meet my goal of 200 books by the end of year. Which means I’m going to have to put my reading speed into high gear.

 

Not having worked on neither of my two current WIPs means a quick re-read so I can get up to speed. I’m going to first work on my adult Contemporary romance. “His Darkest Secret” which if everything goes well, and provided I’ve raised enough funds, I’d love to start the self-blished by the end of August of this year.

 

With the above off my mind for the time being, I can begin to return to a routine of posting entries for the categories I’ve done in the past.

 

And lastly I really need to coordinate everything I’ve got to do with my steamier, erotic side, my “daughter”, Kathryn Heart as she has different things on her plate as well.

The last two weeks has been one heck of a time.

 The mouse and keyboard for my computer kept on dying and then came back to live as I was trying to do stuff.  It got so bad I went and bought a new computer. And with my luck I’ve got issues trying to use it. The major problem now is both EXCEL an WORD the writing is white on black; WORD isn’t that bad as it appears to be easier on the eyes, but with EXCEL I’ve lost the colors I’ve been using as I add data. I don’t know what’s going to happen when I copy and post this entry on my blog. The issue is if I’m ready to self-publish my next endeavor, I don’t know whether the file I would be sending will look the same when the recipient receives it or whether it would the normal black on white. Hoping all this will be resolved when I contact DELL this evening.

With my “daughter’s” release of “her” first erotic endeavor,”Haiku Becomes Erotic,” I had to spend time with its promotion which included a dismal RaffleCopter with no real responses. Behind the “two of us” there’s several WIPs being work on: My major one is an adult Contemporary romance entitled “His Darkest Secret”; and her first shape-shifting, BDSM novella entitled “The Transformation.” Our other WIPs include; my MG/YA Urban Fantasy entitled “The Secret of the Well”; and “her” second volume of 250 erotic haikus,
“she” also as a second erotic novella in mind which a sketch of storyline plot points that want to be reached.

The THUNDERCLAP I was attempting – – – FAILED. I need to think of my next promotional attempt I should use to help raise the funds necessary to get my adult contemporary edited and then to get it self-published which includes paying for a cover to be designed.

The best way, if anyone is in helping me raise the funds I need is to download my books as a KINDLE Unlimited and go through the entire book, this way I get can funds and it doesn’t cost anyone any money, which is the last thing I want to.

Here’s the link for my two books:

One of the things I haven’t done is any reading/reviewing of a single book since May 7th, and late last night, May 17, 2017 I finally began reading a new book. Hopefully I’ll be able to get my reading/reviewing of books back into my daily schedule of things to do. I can’t tell you how grateful my dear supportive OH leaves me alone so I can do all my stuff. 

Have a BLESSED DAY today and weekend with your families.

I can’t believe I haven’t read/reviewed a single book since around April 18th, but then I shouldn’t be surprised as my steamier, erotic side has been kept under wraps for such a long, long time.

My new round of marketing has begun with my attempting to once again do a THUNDERCLAP for my debut romance novel, a MG/YA Paranormal romance novel, entitled “I Kissed a Ghost.” I’ve only gotten 25 supporters and need 75 more with only 13 days left to go. It’s quite depressing not being able to round up 100 supporters. So I would really appreciate your generous support in my meeting my goal http://thndr.me/1MiAIX

 

My next item of my marketing agenda is participating in the release party my steamier, erotic side is having for her anthology of 250 Erotic Haikus, where I’m planning to give away about two [2] KINDLE Editions of each of my two books.

The latest re-read and self-editing for my adult Contemporary “His Darkest Secret” is now about 10% completed with several necessitated changes having been made. My MG/YA Urban Fantasy, “The Secret of the Well” I’m putting on the back burner for the time being as I’ve got too many endeavors on my plate I’m currently working on.

I’m finding it somewhat of a daily challenge deciding which of my two writing sides should I work on next, but I believe everything will work out in the end and will also allow my non-romance writing side to have some time for myself as well. So guys, do any of you have a similar kind of dilemma thath you’ve got to deal with; if you do I’d like to know
