A 100 word flash fiction writing prompt where we are supplied with the first and last word and a photo prompt. We have 24 hours in which to write our story and post it in the comments at the link above. My 24 hours will be up at 5 am UK time Friday. The first word must be FACE and the last word must be LIFT. Here is the photo prompt which also must be part of the writing.
Face reality girl. There’s never going to be any money for college. You’ll never have a chance for success. My only hope is to receive a scholarship. These were the thoughts running through Vanessa’s mind as she hacked away at her grandmother’s old manual typewriter. She was actually writing her term paper on a typewriter. She wouldn’t dare let her classmates know. Her mother said she wouldn’t waste money on a computer when they had them at the library. To her mother, money was better spent on good wine and this rendered her too drunk to give Vanessa a lift.
