Enough is Enough : Flash Fiction for the Purposeful Practitioner

  1. Sometimes we reach a point where tuning everything else out is the only way to think. When we’re upset, ‘leave me alone’ is our first line of defence – but if that does not work walking out might be the only way. Very well observed, and very well captured!

  2. Just found your blog through the Roger Shipp challenge. This piece reminds me of how often the stupidest things we do are also the bravest. I like the notion of walking away as therapeutic.

  3. A very thought provoking story. I remember as a girl of about 8 I kept telling my Mother I was going to run away. She let me and I kept walking down a few blocks before she ran after me. She was so mad. But the walking got rid of my tantrum. I think your character has walked off his anger and knows he needs to go back to survive. It’s rational. He needs the basics, if he is to survive, even a cold winters night. He can always leave again. How I wonder does he get back? Does he have the energy to walk that far? Great story.

  4. Such compulsion to get away… and then the self-control to stop and think. So few people are capable of such an intense dichotomy so quickly. I think that dichotomy would be a great gifting! Enjoyed the read. So glad you could participate this week. Hope to hear from you in Week #5.

    1. Thanks for your thoughtful comments. I’ll be contributing next week but will be away on vacation afterwards so might miss a few weeks. But. I’ll be back!
