Keeping Concentration

“The blackness just enveloped me, I was convinced that this was the end I mean…”

Joules watched as her patient twisted the only loose strand bottle-blonde around her finger and continued to talk. Nodding, she did her best to look thoughtful and not let her view slip any lower than her patient’s mouth.

“Focus.” she told herself. The woman might have been spouting nonsense but at least Joules was being paid a laughable amout to sit there and hum at various intervals.

“I mean, it was just so hard!”

Joules nodded as her patient wailed.

“Of course.” she said. “Now tell me, this was during your second breast enhancement?”

Carol Forrester is a twenty-four year old writer trying to be a better one. Don’t ask her what her hobbies are because the list doesn’t get much beyond, reading, writing and talking about the same. She has a 2:1 BA degree in history from Bath Spa University and various poems and stories scattered across the net. Her flash fiction story ‘Glorious Silence’ was named as River Ram Press’ short story of the month for August 2014 and her short story ‘A Visit From The Fortune Teller’ has been showcased on the literary site Ink Pantry’s. Most recently, her poem ‘Sunsets’ was featured on Eyes Plus Words, and her personal blog Writing and Works hosts a mass of writing from across the last five years. She has been lucky enough to write guest posts for sites such as Inky Tavern and Song of The Forlorn and is always open to writing more and hosting guest bloggers here on Writing and Works. With hopes of publishing a novel in the next five years and perhaps a collection or two of smaller works, Carol Forrester is nothing if not ambitious. Her writing tries to cover every theme in human life and a lot of her work pulls inspiration from her own eccentric family in the rural wonders of Shropshire life.

    And I love all the posts in this blog really interesting touch words, thank you friend 🙂

  2. That punchline was fantastic. If this is your short works, I have no doubt your full works would be just as stellar.

    • Thank you for the confidence that my longer work will be able to match up. The flash fictions have been great for improving my writing and making sure I write regularly.

Please take the time to tell me what you think, I love receiving feedback. :)
