Friday Fictioneers: The Perfect End to a Long Day

Happy Friday, all!

This year, I’m doing NaNoWriMo again. I still need to get a bunch of pre-writing stuff done, including getting a clearer idea of the theme, but you can find my profile here.

I’m also giving fundraising another try. Donations will go to the organization behind NaNoWriMo, which helps bring the opportunity of literacy to people around the world all year ’round through free creative writing classes. There’s not much on my fundraising page just yet, but you can find that here.

I’ll probably be filming a video at least in the nearish future.

Anyway, on to Friday Fictioneers! Many thanks, as always to Rochell Wisoff-Fields for hosting!

And either I’m hungry, or this ride looks a lot like a mushroom. Maybe both.

The Perfect End to a Long Day

            Clarice hated the dress code at her work: pumps, and clothing that only came in “good luck staying stain free”. Then there were hours wasted on straightening hair and caking makeup on.
            Once she replaced heels with slippers, the suit with sweats and washed war paint away, she wandered into the kitchen.
            “Janey?” As she watched, her wife rolled a mushroom between her fingers. “You ok?”
            “Hm?” Jane favored her with a dreamy smile. “Yeah. I was just thinking. We should go to the fair. Remember that swing ride?”
             “Yeah.” Clarice smiled warmly. “Sounds like a plan for the weekend.”
