Friday Flash 55: Wipeout

It’s common wisdom — never ask for signs.
But why? A sign could reveal the right choice.
Concentrate on writing or concentrate on my business?
I wanted a bold, clear sign.
But 1600 gallons of water into the business?
I think I could have got it with a smaller hint —
a post-it instead of a billboard.

Okay, this wasn’t fiction, but I wish it was. Wait. No, no. I don’t wish anything! I take that back! Anyone else ever had a wish go wrong in a big way? See what other Friday Flash 55 participants wrote about.

Today is the last day to get your name in for the Earth Day giveaway. I’ll announce the winner tomorrow.

Note: The insurance claim is all wrapped up.  I turn in the keys to my old shop today and I’m all moved in to my new place. I’m working on an exciting new story with Orchid Games, so it’s all good.
