He wants it all,

every speck of savings,

counted out in pennies.


“I’m touring the world,

one fountain the next,

until I run out of wishes.”

Sorry Daily Prompt,Daily Prompt, but I don’t seem to be able to remember any of those wishes that I made.

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.

  5. You’re not the only one that forgot what they wished for after tossing pennies into the fountain.

    Hmmm…I wonder if any of them came true?

    • I wonder that as well, but then I get frustrated that I can’t remember and just shrug it off. They were probably quite trivial like “I hope I get a good grade on this essay” and other such stuff that just requires working at.
