Diary Challenge: 15th-21st August 2011

Once again I find myself home alone as hubby has jetted off to Riga for YAPC::EU. Last time he was away I went for rather melancholic challenges. This time they will not be intrinsically sad. Firstly, I would hate to be repetitive, and secondly, he’s only at a conference and compared to what some other people I know are going through it’s really no big deal. Sorry sweetie, but you know I still miss you, right? 😛

Anyway, this week we’ll be writing 7 scenes, or 7 flash fic pieces again. Each of them must feature a character who is alone for whatever reason. It can be any 7 people and any reasons at all. It could be a teen home alone, a mother indulging in a rare night away from the kids, the sole survivor of an apocalypse, you know, normal stuff like that. If you need a bit more inspiration than that you can try making them all different ages and see what emerges. I like to imagine that when I’m 80 I’ll still be playing Guitar Hero when no one is looking :).

And that’s it. It’s a short post but the week will be the same length it always is ;). TTFN!
