Goodbye February!

28 Feb

MariaAnd good riddance. January was brutal and February was worse, both because we had to euthanize our beautiful kitty—I’ve put up another of my favorite pictures of her, here—and because for the entire month I fought a kind of fatigue that just totally took over my mind. I used to be able to bounce back for weeks at a time. Now a good bounce lasts maybe a day. Well, I wanted to know what would happen to me if I wrote a story every day for a year, and now I’m finding out. The day’s shorty is a sad one about a grieving widow. Fitting.


Working Title: The Empty Half
1st Sentence: Without him I can’t speak, not coherently.

Word Length: 334


My husband took this photo of our sweetie not too long ago.
