March 25 2021, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less), write an escape. It can be daring or subtle. Who is escaping from what and why? Go where the prompt leads! Charli’s Carrot Ranch Prompt:
Escaping The Madness
“It’s everywhere! No, not the virus. We know that comes and goes as it pleases. The topic… the hype… the space it takes up in our psyche is the part that enslaves us. Of course I’m not mad about it. I’m just so very tired of it. Every effort I make to escape from the dehumanizing effects and there they are jogging in sunshine wearing masks! Every other poem and post… signs on doors… children not allowed to be themselves even though they’re thankfully not in any danger. Sometimes all we can do is not to participate. Camping anyone?”
Since so many other online writers have blogs dedicated to their writings, I’ve decided to jump onto the bandwagon. All posts published here will be either fiction or poetry, some new, and some previously published on various places on the Internet. Some of my works are conventional, and some are quirky. All fiction posted here, except for fan fiction, will include the letters "rose" somewhere, as a tribute to my Baba.
