Still Writing (Flash Fiction)

This looks like a fun competition.

“I’m working on a novel,” he told her on their first date.

“Oh, my gosh, that’s sooo interesting! What’s it about?”

“I think I’ve figured it out,” he told her. “It’s about a writer who can’t finish his novel. See, that way it’s sort of a satire, right?”

“Well,” she said, caressing her swollen belly. “I guess I see that. Kinda confusing, though.”

“It’s not so confusing,” he said. “I’m starting to work past most of the kinks.”

“Yeah, well, super,” she grunted, wrestling Tyler into his pj’s. “Now you think you can grab his feet or something and help me out here?”

“Do I have to? I’m in the middle of a real writing breakthrough here.”

“Fine,” she snapped. “I’ll just take the kids to soccer, drop Mary off at Angela’s house, take Tyler to get new clothes, pick up the groceries, and make supper for everyone while you continue to be jobless and worthless. How does that sound?”

“Honey, this novel, it’s going to be huge. We’ll make so much money. We’ll be famous, I swear.”

“There’s no ‘we’ anymore, cowboy,” she said, picking up her suitcase. "The kids and I will be at Mom’s house for a little while, if you need anything. Try not to.”

“Well, isn’t this just a mess.”

The police officer stepped on a few crumpled papers to nudge the corpse.

“What a waste."

Well, guess I’ll go back to writing my novel now.
