Hello, #vss365 #prompt (or Wannabe) People! Here are some sample posts that I put on my @NancyKnowsLife Twitter page for this week covering late August and early September. Of course, like many of you, I expect to publish some or all of these in a book, so I reserve the right to change wording and pictures. Typically, when I write these, I have only five minutes to find out what the word of the day is, create something in poetry or prose, find a picture, and then stick it on Twitter! That does not always bring out the best in me!
What About You? Do You Want to Joint the #vss365 #prompt Challenges?
You can play, too, by just searching for #vss365 (very short stories – every day of the year – in poetry or prose) and #prompt. When you do that, you’ll see what the word of the day is. Just follow the easy instructions from whoever the facilitator is. Here’s the link, and all are welcome, including people who’ve never written before.

#vss365 #prompt #dock
What’s going on?
What time is it?
Where are my photos?
What to do in an emergency?
Only if you have a #dock on which to charge
The love it/hate it phone!

#vss365 #prompt #shock
We worked together all day, every day
With lots of overtime in the evenings and on weekends.
We spent most nights together and made plans together.
So, imagine my #shock when you, inexplicably, put me in a taxi
And said you’d call me later.
When you didn’t, and I called you twenty times, finally, you answered and …
I heard a woman’s voice in the background laughing and telling you to get off the phone
At 3 a.m.

#vss365 #prompt #drift
I’ve been on hold long enough
For one phone’s battery to die.
My thoughts #drift so far away
I almost can’t remember whom I called or why.
I think of lost loves …
What’s for dinner …
“All representatives are currently helping other customers.”
Oh yeah, “payment overdue” on a bill I already paid. Damn!
#vss365 #prompt #stare
The doctor said she was sorry to inform me I have AIDS.
All I could do was #stare.
No more words were audible as I fell down a whole into total the total and turmoil darkness of fear.
Endless moments later, I saw a pinprick of White Light. Just a small dot. I concentrated on that dot and watched it grow as I took control of what was left of my life. Recovered from addiction. Played music again. Died knowing I was dearly loved.
#vss365 #prompt #flaw
She scans the visage for a #flaw
And finds that one blemish
Makes her beautiful face ugly.
He scans the visage for a #flaw
And finds all that makeup
Makes her beautiful face ugly.
