FLASH 55 - BUZZ OFF

She used to spend hours online. Her habits changed as she found more value in herself and her new life. Along comes Buzz; she tries to ignore it and continue with her writing but the little icon calls to her from her inbox, “Check me out, you may miss something important.” BE AFRAID…BE VERY AFRAID



A new service from Goggle to compete with Twitter and Facebook. Me thinks I may have to move it out of my inbox and hide elsewhere. Way too accessible for a former internet junkie like me :)

I've written another 55 this week... -The First Time.

Flash Fiction - Each Friday, I compose a short story of 55 words - no more, no less. If you would like to join in the fun and games... post your story and report to the boss -G-MAN. If you're not interested in contributing a story, feel free to read the other entries. I'm sure any comments you have would be appreciated.

Happy reading and writing!</

I'll admit to needing my internet fix as well. Seems pretty benign compared to other addictions :) Great 55!

I’m up right HERE

Peter Stone said...

Yeah, I must admit to thinking similar thoughts when I heard about Google Buzz. Just what the world needs, yet another Facebook/My Space to waste our time on...

My 55 is here

Ah... the addiction-factor. This one hits us where it hurts the most: right in our own living room.

Mine’s here.

I got all I can do to keep up with my blogging!

PattiKen said...

Not an addiction! I prefer to call it "intellectual curiosity."

(Hoping this post will take. The first try was gobblety-gook.)

Eaton Bennett said...

Perfect! I'm afraid of time slipping away on another cyber fun app. So far I have avoided Twitter. Buzz is so handy, it may be too much to completely avoid it. :))

I managed a 55 this week, eventually. It's on Passionate Fiction.
