The Gift (Friday Fictioneers)

Are you staring at a blank screen with no writing ideas? Here is a prompt from Laurie Bell. Every Friday she inspires us. I especially like this one. Go for it.

Rambles, writing and amusing musings

The fire had been years ago. There was one room, a small one, tucked away out the back that was still structurally sound. That was where I hid, on the day of the fire. That is where I hide now, day after day, year after year. My sanctuary.

I survived because of the power I had been gifted on that same fateful day. Which is why I can’t leave. This is my home. This was hers.

I hold my hand up to the dying sun. In a blink my hand becomes a living flame. Superpowers are not always a gift.

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.
