Visual Dare 7: Stuck

NOTE: I have enabled links so you can post your entry on your own blog and 
link back here. See the cool linky tool below today's photo! 
(And let me know if you have any problems with it!!)

If you do NOT have a blog, feel free to post as usual in the comments below.


Here is your weekly Visual Dare! You can use this photo in one of two ways:

     * incorporate it into your current Work In Progress - literally, or figuratively
     * use it as a 100 word flash fiction to get the brain going in a different creative direction.

Here's your dare:

  1. She knew it was the only way out. There are times in life where the only choice is so scary, so horrific, so sad, that under any other circumstances it would be unthinkable, but now becomes a way to a new life. As the water rushed in, she knew she didn’t have much time left, and she wanted to make sure all of her thoughts were in order. The end would come quickly unless she went now. Saying a silent goodbye, she stepped out of her warm home, slipped into a bubble, and rose to the surface, never to return.

    1. Wow! Love this - so tense and urgent. And what of this home she's leaving behind? This reads like a great "hook" for an opening chapter. Thanks for participating!!

  2. Love drmagoo's piece - I definitely want to know what's happened to get her to that sad point...

    I have tried using your new whizzy linky thing for this week's... do let me know if it has/ hasn't worked! X
