Flash fiction - Decision

A little 33-word story from the photo prompt below from our friends at Trifecta. Happy reading and writing this weekend!

Decision

The moment before leaving the shadows is uncertain, vague. I crack, a delicate, empty vase, with the pressure of the decision: Who am I? Where to go? I step back. I can't, yet.

  1. Decision is always there. Sometimes we have to act even when we're uncertain. Like the direction you took with the prompt.

  3. You've captured the anxiety of indecision perfectly. I love the line "I crack, a delicate, empty vase, with the pressure of the decision." Urgh--wish I could say I'd never been there. Still bearing the scars of some of those cracks…

    I'm really enjoying your work, Laura. So glad to have found you through Trifecta.
