Flash 55 - A Writer's Dilemma

~ click image to make biggerer ~


I do my best writing in the shower, 
while I am driving in heavy traffic or 
tossing clothes in the washer but 
my mind doesn’t have an automatic save feature. 
My secretary’s off duty, 
I have no pen and paper and 
the batteries in my recorder are dead 
(my voice is annoying on the replay anyway.)



Write a story in 55 words.

  1. Great Flash 55! Once again I see a reflection of myself, except that I can't drive.

  2. Fess up. You wrote this story about me, didn't you? I know you did because I recognize myself in every word!

  4. My voice is annoying on the tape recorder too but I don't have to listen to myself telling stories. I only have to listen to myself interviewing other people and you have no idea how annoying that can be. A little notebook for jotting down ideas helps. (I have a hundred notebooks. Pity I never seem to have one on me when lightning strikes)

  13. (Just a thought) You can always call yourself and leave a voice message.

    Funny 55, Nessa!

  14. We all have to have a little down time somewhere along the way. You can't constantly force it or the whole process slows down too much.

  17. This is so true. Not the annoying voice part, but the having odd places where the muse strikes. For me it is always about 3 AM...Stupid muse and those upside down sleep habits.

  18. I completely understand. And sorry to tell you this, but it only gets worse.

  19. I actually write many of my blog posts (and emails) in my head. Fortunately they do mostly save until I can get to a keyboard.
