https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/06/16/your-daily-word-prompt-insincere-june-16-2019/ June was flummoxed.  Darren Franks had been given the opportunity of a lifetime, to be with the best, learn from the best, walk shoulder to shoulder with the best and if he’d chosen to prove himself, he could have flown, soared, Jackson would have guaranteed it.

Trust

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/06/11/your-daily-word-prompt-trust-june-11-2019/ June listened intently to Jackson’s explanation.  Apparently, he’d been a long time friend that his father had given a job to.  It wasn’t enough for Darren who felt he was owed more.  Anyone’s guess as to what or why he felt wronged.  He showed up, did his job, worked well but basically hadn’t added […]

Difficult

Vague

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/05/23/your-daily-word-prompt-vague-may-23-2019/ What June found most interesting was people’s responses to her artwork.  There was nothing vague about their responses, they were either all in, or were completely cold.  They had to have it, or they walked away which in most cases amused her since her art covered a huge range of possibilities.  She couldn’t help […]

Narrative

https://onedailyprompt.wordpress.com/2019/05/15/your-daily-word-prompt-irony-may-15-2019/ The irony of finding Roland’s “good luck hat” wasn’t lost on June.  It started out as a joke but he kept it going anyway.
