This is getting tough. Rather, this is getting tougher.
I started with Drabble Fridays, because I was way impressed by Stevil’s work, and I wanted to see if I could curb my chattiness to 100 words. My first one or two attempts were fun, so I started taking part in flash fiction challenges.
Well, the flash seems to have hit the wall, or something. Writer’s block is crashing down on me. I applaud every single person who is able to create a work of fiction on a daily basis.
All that said, I’m still here for another go at a drabble – a work of fiction consisting 100 words. Join me, and tag your post with ‘Friday Drabble’ and use the hash-tag #fridaydrabble on Twitter.
.: Aroused :.
She woke to the caress of her neck. It tickled.
Her back to her husband, she moved her leg, and gently touched his. “Men and their morning inspiration,” she smiled to herself.
The touch tingled down her spine, as she sighed and arched her back slightly.
She moved closer to her husband, feeling the warmth of his chest against her back. She closed her eyes and caught her breath, as the tingle proceeded downward.
Her body warm with desire, she turned to her husband.
He was still asleep.
Unaware of the arousal it caused, the roach crawled under the bed.

I’ll see your “gack” and raise you one, honkin’ big “eeeewwww!”
You are so silly. We use Allgood Pest Solutions. When the bugs are gone it’s ‘all good’!
I’m with you there, sister!
At least it was only one roach. Yeah, Ok – major eeeeeew!
I know! I wanted a twist, but I used so many twists this week – I couldn’t think of anything else. Sweet dreams!
That definitely calls for a YUK!
Hello Mags – I think it screams for a “YUK!” 🙂 Thanks for reading!
Ew! Ew! Ew!!
I know what you mean about creativity on demand — I had half a dozen ideas throughout the week and none of them really came together for me… 😦
It may have been in my best interest to sit out for Friday’s drabble. Then again, I look forward to Fridays. I think the better idea is to go easy on the flash fictions during the week. Seriously – how do people do it?
Thank you for reading, Steve. Sleep tight!
For a person who’s struggling with writer’s block, you’re giving us, your readers, great stuff to read, Lenore! Keep at it!
Oh goodness, Priya. Thank you. For me there is a fine line between cranking stuff out on a daily basis and providing something worth reading. I hope my attempt at building my writing muscle (in fiction) is providing something worth reading. Your vote of confidence is nice to receive.
Spiders, ants, etc. I can handle but a roach … I woulda been jumpin’ outta the bed, the screechin’ causing my husband to drop to the floor.
Blessings – Maxi
You and me both, Maxi. Fortunately, I spared her the ‘knowledge’ of the critter.
ha! I really expected it to be the dog … the roach made me jump!! Great stuff 🙂
by the way, love the new blog layout … very nice !! MJ
Thank you for letting me know you like the new layout/theme. The positive responses I am receiving are easing my nerves. I am still on the fence with it. (Though I won’t change.)
Sorry to make you jump, MJ. I hope the jump wasn’t followed by the heebee jeebies. 🙂
Was totally not expecting that! I’m creeped out…well done!
Thanks, Nancy! I am glad I caught you off guard. Sorry for the creep out factor, though.
You should be writing for the Twilight Zone. 🙂 (Or was that before your time?)
I don’t know if I watched reruns or first runs – regardless, I am very familiar with Rod Sterling and the Twilight Zone. I did watch it when I was a kid. I actually preferred One Step Beyond. I loved that show. I would watch it with my Mom and Dad.
Yikes! I didn’t see that coming. Well done.
Thanks Linda. Gotta try my best at keeping folks guessing. 🙂
