Dear Steve,
Happy New Year. I hope this address still works. I also hope you read this to the end. You may wonder why I decided to write. Well, it’s just that this new year, I decided to make a fresh start with things that are out of place in my life. The many times you tried to fix things between us, I was still stubborn and proud. Please forgive me. I hope you’re still willing to try.
Crystal asks about you sometimes. I usually don’t know what to answer. Will she finally meet her daddy before her fifth birthday?

100 words

I read all your comments and I appreciate them, even if I take long to respond and even if I do not respond to each comment individually.

You can read pieces by other participants here.

Behind the Scenes/Comments
Our Great Leader this week introduced a rule: indicate the genre of your story, with regard to content. I could foresee occasional problems for myself there. So I asked my friend Google about genres and Google, along with my other friend Wikipedia, gave me some guidance. I hope I got it right. [Update: Our Great Leader gave some guidance as well 🙂 ]

I did not post last week, and I did not read most of the stories the week before that (my loss, certainly), simply because I do not have convenient Internet access outside the office, and I was on leave. That also means I did not have good opportunity to respond to all your comments in a timely manner, but I appreciate them. Thank you all.

However, on Wednesday this week, I wrote something quick for last week’s prompt and you can read it here.

About Friday Fictioneers
Friday Fictioneers is a group or arrangement that works as follows:
Every week you get a picture.
Prompted by that picture, you write a piece of fiction that is 100 words long (or as close as you can get).
You add a link to your story on the Fictioneers page, and read the (awesome) stories by the other Friday Fictioneers.

Feel free to join us! Everyone is welcome.
