Task Accomplished

PHOTO PROMPT © Douglas M. MacIlroy

The bird tapping on the window reminded her that there was life outside of this room and these four walls. She had been so engrossed in her task for the last few days, that life had stood still. Eating crisps in front of her laptop had been the norm; and her exercise routine had been set aside. Her research was done! Attaching the documents to an email, she sent it off to her supervisor. Hopefully now they would make the decision to cancel the forthcoming policies. If they did not, the company would be the target of crippling lawsuits.

Note: After 17 days of social distancing, I am finding it difficult to connect with my muse!

(This post was inspired by Friday Fictioneers hosted by Rochelle. The challenge asks for bloggers to write a story in 100 words or less in response to the photo prompt.)

  1. I to find my muse quiet, as many of the things which stimulated ideas are now out. I have wondered about rewriting and improving stories.


  2. Dear Colline,

    A busy woman bent on her tasks. I like the way the bird reminded her there’s life on the outside. I’m finding long walks on nice days and on not so nice days really helps.




  3. I’ve always rather envied people who could stay focused on one thing for days on end. I’ve never been able to do that. I don’t think I have ADD, but who knows? Maybe. . . .

    Anyway, your description of her intensity is excellent. I can easily visualize her glued to her computer, snarfing down potato chips and letting the rest of the world go by 🙂
