100 word challenge week 29

This week’s prompt – one word: Wednesday  Here is my entry:


“Wednesday, what’s with Wednesday,” she muttered under her breath as she picked through the pile of lists on her desk.

“I know there was something. Surely I wrote it down.” She glanced at and tossed several more scraps of paper. So many reminders of things to do. Go to the bank, buy groceries, fix the doorbell. Doorbell? That was last year! How old were some of these?

Old. The word bit into her. No she was not old, she just… forgot.

A lot.

That’s why she had to write things down.

write…  write….. oh!  The 100 word challenge… Wednesday.

  1. For me this had the remnants of A Touch of Frost & Columbo but they were great minds! Great take on the prompt!

    1. Thank you Julia. Perhaps great minds contain so much they can’t help but get distracted. 😉

  2. […] tuit:  three 100 word challenges: 100 Word Challenge,  Friday Fictioneers, and Saturday […]

  3. This is very clever! I really like it! Very well written, and a terrific interpretation of the prompt. It works perfectly.

    1. Thank you so much, that is lovely to hear. Er, read, I mean. 😉

  4. you’ve captured how the mind works (or momentarily doesn’t when one forgets) well!

    1. Ha, that’s cause I’m so familiar with it! Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Wow you just rock dialogue! Lovely vignette, you paint a big picture on a small cavas.

    1. Thank you for such a lovely comment. Glad you liked it. 🙂

  6. Memory is a playful little monster! Loved how you took the prompt and turned it on its head.

    1. Thank you for the visit and the comment. Turned on its head – I like that. You should suggest it to Julia for a future challenge.

  7. Clever! I have a desk and a memory like her. Desk has a diary and a to do list both of which are covered with dozens of post-it notes with extra to-dos on.

    1. You should see my desk – I keep running lists in several places, and I don’t even notice the postits most of the time, but continue to use them. Thanks for commenting.

  8. This was done with understanding , memory loss must be such a burden. A super take on the prompt. Love how it all tied in.

    1. Thank you so much. Glad you liked it. 🙂

  9. Memory is a wonderful thing to have and terrible to lose. You get across the onset of confusion really well with this. Cute ending too!

    1. I’d tell you this actually happened, but that would be a lie – however, it is bvery much how my mind works at times. Thanks for the comment.
