I have not taken part in a flash fiction challenge in a long time. I have followed Kimberly Crawford since the beginning of my blog nearly two years ago. My first short story, The Last Piece,was from my first shot at one of her challenges. I am thankful that she continues to post these.

This week, we are challenged to write about our ideal work space. Deep in my heart this is where I want to be.

I just assume that when people read “black dog” we all see the same black dog versus a fat, stinky black dog with short, matted hair and a deep bark. I learned in college that appealing to ALL senses is descriptive writing. But please don’t ask me what the pup tasted like 😉
