August 23- Flash Fiction – Bottleneck

Charli’s prompt this week:

August 30, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about a bottleneck. You can be literal or use the term to describe congestion. Go where the prompt leads.

Word Jam
Words.
Snippets.
Stories.
Poems.
Novels.
The ideas were just pouring out of my mind, my heart, my soul, and I didn’t know where to start.
No, that’s not right.
I knew where to start, I just couldn’t work out where to stop, how to organise the thoughts rushing through me.
My fingers danced across the keyboard, letters appearing, filling pages and pages.
Faster and faster they came, until-
They stopped.
I knew there was more to come out, but it was as if the impatience of my ideas had caused a bottleneck in my brain.
Time for the muse…

    Argh! You brilliantly captured the bottleneck in every writer’s brain, Ritu! I like how the words flow at first…just like real life. 😀

    Loved the effect these words had on your narrator. So come so thick and fast as to not be able to stop them, then, full stop. (Sorry).
