I am on a roll today, less than 2 hours since I posted my last story for Lillie McFerrin's Five Sentence Fiction and I am inspired again, this time to write my Visual Dare for the week.
In the meantime I have washed my car, cleaned out the guinea pigs and I'm on my second load of washing - so I haven't just been sitting at my laptop waiting for inspiration for strike. Such a productive day I am having but I must do the ironing before I write anything else!
Anyway my Visual Dare this week is a continuation to the Behind the Curtain entry I posted yesterday. Well when the picture had a mirror in it I had to tell you the story from the other side...
Thanks Angela Goff for the timely inspiration!
I’m dancing on almost frozen toes, pirouetting just to keep warm.
How did I get to this wood?
Only seconds ago I was in my bedroom watching the dancer in my new mirror.
Oh I know, you thought I was doing my homework but I am so excited to be accepted into the Red Shoes Ballet Academy.
Between the trees are many mirrors. If I step through one will I return to my world?
The peace breaks as one mirror shatters into shards of icy sunlight and I hear you sobbing.
I know for certain now – I can never return.
