I hope you had a great first day of this challenge. If you missed it, no worries; it’s still easy to catch up! If you did write yesterday, let’s do it again!
For today’s prompt, I'm thinking about things that end where they began. For this reason, let's go ahead and write something circular!
Remember: As mentioned yesterday, these prompts are just starting points; you have the freedom to go wherever your flash of inspiration takes you.
(Note: If you happen to run into any issues posting, please just send me an e-mail at email@example.com with the subject line: Flash Fiction Challenge Commenting Issue.)
Here’s my attempt at writing something that circles:
The Circles of Life
The mouth of a screaming baby. Teething toys. Bicycle wheels. Soccer balls. Baseballs. Car tires. Bruises from falling out of a shopping cart at 3 a.m. The ridge of a condom in its wrapper. The end of a rolled-up diploma.
Zeros in a bank account. The top scoop of your date’s ice cream cone. A Cup ‘O Noodles. The lid of the boss’s Starbuck’s order. The lit end of a cigarette. Waste-paper basket, overfilled. Engagement ring. Wedding bands. Dog collars. More zeros in the bank, but with other numbers in front. Birth control pills still in their pack.
The mouth of a screaming baby. Teething toys. Bicycle wheels.
