100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups – Week #31

The Flip Side:

Pulling into the driveway, she wiped at her tears and slumped forward. “Laid off.” The words echoed in her mind.  The tears flowed. “Now what?” her thoughts were spinning.  How could she get another job in this economy?  How would she survive with no money? She sat alone in the car as the evening turned into night.  Relaxing her grip on the wheel triggered a release. She realized that there was a flip side to this crisis. She has been given a chance for a fresh start, a chance to accept her father’s gift of tuition and finish her education.

I visited Julia’s Place.    I was thrilled to find she has a weekly writing challenge called  the “100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups.” http://jfb57.wordpress.com/2012/02/20/100-word-for-grown-ups-week31/  This is a weekly challenge for those who are over 16 and enjoy challenging themselves with writing. Each week you are given a prompt. It may be a few connected words, a selection of individual words or a picture. The challenge is to write exactly 100 words on the weekly topic or suggestion.

I have decided to give it a go.

This week the challenge is “The Flip Side”
