The Long Drive Home, The First One

So when I put up last week’s The Long Drive Home for the Carrot Ranch free-write, I told you all that I had actually written another one that needed some tweaking. Unfortunately the required tweaking was probably not as much as thought. I don’t know if this was a better one and I should have gone with this one, but it no longer matters. Hindsight and all of that.

Sooooo…….. oh, and it’s minimally longer than the regulations because, well, obviously I’m not submitting it…..


The Long Drive Home, The First One

This could be a Bob Dylan song, ‘The Long Drive Home” with Drew behind the wheel of this old pick-up and me staring into the passing darkness, except there isn’t any music, and Drew pretends I don’t exist. Continue reading


Carrot Ranch 2nd Free Write: Eulogies

Thank you to D. Avery for pointing out my typo of 267…if that had been true rather than the exact 297…argh!

Today was the second 24-hour free write for Carrot Ranch. I meant to read the prompt before I went to sleep last night, but I was happily out for a late dinner and completely

I went with my “gut” on this one as Charli suggests in her write-up.  My gut told me to do something out of the ordinary so here it is. For the prompt of “Papa’s bar,” my “story” Eulogies.

Thanks to Charli and the judges for this opportunity.

Dream Crashers #amwriting

Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Challenge. June 22, 2017 prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that involves a dream. This action could have happened while awake, such as daydreaming, or make up a dream when asleep. Go where the prompt leads as it could be a nightmare or just fond memories or ambition.

This was the first “thought” that came to mind. I will probably try something more fictional as well.
