Unsettled #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

Shania Twain’s “Whose Boots” played in the background.  Anita sighed.  She loved her. Talented woman with thousands of songs that moved her to the core.  Her success was well earned.  Prancing around the dance hall to one after the other, making up and adding her own movements, her ballet style all her own, she moved […]

Tolerant #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

Tolerant, thoughtful, tender.  The words on her headstone.  She’d lived up to those words and they’d served her well until that final day when tolerance had been her undoing. Greta hadn’t suspected he was anything other than what he purported to be. Standing over her grave masked in an expensive auburn real hair wig, blue-tinted […]

Sensitive #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

Zoe was sensitive by nature.  She’d grown a hard shell of protection.  Advertising wasn’t for the feint of heart.  It took guts, stamina, intelligence, wit and knowing the difference and awareness regarding the current climate. The banner across the stage was for her. Extolling excellence.  She’d earned it, every step of the way. Dogged pursuit […]

Rattled #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

Dana tried, oh my god she’d tried, but the man was insidiously short sighted and and “stupid!” she yelled out loud though there were none to hear.  The campaign hinged on the elegance and possibility, the nuance of romance in an idyllic setting.  It wasn’t supposed to be staged with robotic men and women.  No […]

Quivering #AtoZChallenge #amwriting

  Sandy stood quivering on the water’s edge, oblivious to the gentle lapping at her feet.  She wasn’t cold.  She wasn’t overheated.  She wasn’t fearful. She was excited. Her husband was returning from overseas. Six long months he’d been gone, forced to finish up loose ends before joining her. They’d never been apart this long.  […]

Passionate AtoZchallenge #amwriting

Olivia was passionate about everything.  She just wasn’t passionately in love with James. Although they experienced some heady moments in exquisitely romance settings, something was missing.  They’d done it all together.  Skiing, climbing, touring country after country, sailing.  They’d exchanged everything meaningful about their hopes dreams and beliefs.  They clicked.   Really clicked.  For all that, […]

Optimistic AtoZchallenge #amwriting

Maria’s staff was holding together well, optimistic to the end.  Heads held high, they continued their work as per normal.  Today was D-day.  Except for a select few, no one knew what the board’s decision would be.  They held the fate of all the employees working at Lord’s in their hands. Although a well-known name, […]

<a href=”URL of your post”>LINK</a> “Why is Jenny in handcuffs and why are the cops taking her away?” April asked stunned. “There was a theft in her department and they think it was her,” Dawn’s smile held acrimony. “That’s not possible, she’s the most honest woman I’ve ever met. Honest and fair!” “Says you!” “Yeah, […]

F is for Flustered #AtoZChallenge #AMWRITING

Gena felt completely flustered!  She’d gone about her daily chores as per normal, focusing on shopping not only for herself, but for her elderly neighbour unable to get to the market as often as necessary. She’d obtained the groceries, carefully packing them separately so she could drop them and run.  Mrs. Humphrey often lay down […]

Stay calm, breathe! I admonished myself for the 10th time.  It’s not life or death!  It’s meeting an interesting man for the first time.  You’re in a safe location, you have friends nearby you can call for help.  You’re not planning on going anywhere alone with the guy.  It’s a meet and greet only. I […]
