I love doing Friday Fictioneers. Love the challenge of writing 100 words from a picture. While I'll try to keep up a few stories in November, I've succumbed to the NaNoWriMo challenge of writing a 50,000 word novel in November. Check my progress on the chart to the right.
Anyone else doing NaNoWriMo?

Weathering The Storm
“We’re in over our heads, Gretchen. The United States is barely treading water these days."
Gretchen set two cups of coffee on the kitchen table. “No one knows who to vote for anymore. No matter what party affiliation, the candidates flood us with empty promises they can’t keep.”
Henry nodded. “Yet, each election everyone falls for the same lies."
Gretchen sipped her coffee and stared out the window. The seven-day rainfall threatened their home, but they refused to obey orders anymore. “Everyone needs to believe things will be okay.”
Hands clasped and eyes closed, Henry led their morning prayer.
