Speaking Art

Eleanor Fallaway knew very little about art. What she did know was how to lie to a very convincing level.
“Well,” said her boss, making his way around the empty podiums stationed throughout his museum. “It’s certainly interesting.”
“It’s exactly what’s needed to launch ourselves into this previously untapped market,” Eleanor grinned, “A real head-turner. Did you know that ninety percent of teenagers don’t even know that art museums still exist!”
“Really?” Her boss’s eyes widened. “You don’t say?”
“Oh I do!” Eleanor nodded enthusiastically.
“And this will bring them in will it?” he asked, gazing at the podium critically.
“When the models are installed they will come flocking,” she assured him.
“Flocking?”
“Flocking!”
“Good,” he said, turning to walk back to his office. “Oh, by the way,” he paused and glanced back. “What was it called again?”
“The extraordinary within the ordinary,” Eleanor replied.
“Hum,” nodded her boss. “Original.”

Carol Forrester is a twenty-three 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.

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