Quit It! (#AtoZChallenge)

This is my 9th attempt at the month-long blogging challenge, Blogging from A to Z. I’ve completed it 5 times so far. My theme this year is 7 Sentence Fiction, and the word I’m using for Q is Quit.

Quit It!

“Quit,” said the voice yet again.

“I will not. Why should I?” I countered, refusing to bow down to it.

The world felt much better when I persisted.

Nothing seemed wrong till the doctor’s report came. The future all of a sudden felt hazy.

“One puff too many,” said the voice, as I looked at the pack of cigarettes I had just thrown into the dustbin.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Very interesting concept, to try to get a story in in 7 sentences. Nice job! Happy to have found you. I may go back and catch a few more, since they certainly are short enough!
