Friday Fictioneers: Behind the Wheels

The beauty of flash fiction – and I recommend every writer give it a shot – is that you aren’t tied to your story. You can whip something out, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve fully developed every aspect of the story or if it’s a voice you could sustain – or would even want to sustain. It allows you to play with words and stories in ways you wouldn’t normally do without the pressure of wondering if it’s good enough. Flash fiction is FUN.

Behind the Wheels

It’s hard to say how it all started. Little stuff, you know, like a blade of grass in a sidewalk crack. Not like vines wrapping around your body and choking the life out of you.

But now it’s like – and I hope you’ll forgive the mixed metaphor – it’s like I’m driving along and all the sudden I realize my steering wheel’s just a dummy. She’s been steering all along, crazy creature with white flowers in her hair.

I think I’ll hit the gas. See how she handles the truck at 110 m.p.h.

  1. Dear Lisa, Cute story and going 110 will certainly take off some of the leaves – remember to wear your seat belt – oh wait a minute – going 110 mph won’t help if you have an accident. Too fast! Great story! Nan 🙂
