FLASH 55 - DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER

The enticing cover, suggests a life many would covert. The author sees himself the hero, surrounded by losers, assigning blame for his actions, to characters around him. Chapters begin to reveal false memories of what could have been. His life’s work gathers dust. There is nobody left to read it. Who is the loser now?


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!
