Tell me something, old friend: why are you fighting?

You want the best for me, too, I know you do. You call me untalented at each deleted keystroke, but your fear overshadows that shallow indignation. Look at me. You have nothing to fear. The mirror will never reflect me without you. 


In tribute to the late and great Gabriel Garcia Marquez, this week’s 42-word flash-anything prompt is: “Tell me something, old friend: why are you fighting?”  Shake yourself a tall universe-shattering drink and click above to check out the challenge!




  1. I do think many of us struggle with the same feelings. I expect it’s a rare writer who doesn’t struggle with every keystroke. 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up!

    1. Thank you :). It’s sad that so many people know this feeling exactly, but it’s also heartening to see so many of us come together for things like Yeah Write!

  2. Exactly-we have to learn to respect and love ourselves first -only then can we expect the world to do so:-)I love this unusually perceptive take on the prompt:-)

I'm not your grandmother - talk back to me!
