Grab a cup of tea or coffee, find a comfortable spot and read this week’s collection of flash fiction from some of your favourite writers..Charli Mills, Ritu Bhathal, Anita Dawes, D.Avery, Miriam Hurdle, Jim Borden, Norah Colvin and one from me! Head over and enjoy. Thanks Charli for another wonderful prompt.
If you asked people what the greatest gift is, you might be surprised at how varied our answers can be. This prompt initiated a conversation that explored the shadows of life. The sun doesn’t always shine, and happiness can feel fleeting. The longer we live, or the more direct experiences we have outside normal expectations, the answer shifts.
So, of course, the greatest gift makes an interesting exploration among writers. Ultimately, we can say the greatest gift is life — but we have many ways to express what that means, why it is so, and how we can manage such a precious and uncertain gift.
The following is based on the September 12, 2019, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story that includes the greatest gift.
