Illumination


Gaslight
    
Wall sconces burn, or do they?
Spotlight
    
They thought her name was Truman.

Lampshade
    
He casually mentioned it... three times.

Candle
    
All the windows were boarded up.
Paper Lantern
    
What kind of meat is this?

Full Moon
    
His bark wasn't bigger than his bite.

Chandelier
    
Impromptu dances never miss a step.
Campfire
    
They decide to investigate the noise.

The Gaslight story came to me while watching Young Sherlock Holmse, and I decided to challenge myself with this theme -- which is a play on words. This was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Part of that was because I wanted to use many different light-sources, and to tie-in a bit of an "ah-ha" moment for each of them. Was proud I managed six-words on all but one, though I have to thank Jim for help in getting one of them down.

Been having a terrible block writing-wise. I do not believe a writer's block is a lack of words, but rather a lack of passion and enjoyment in writing. Drama in life can do that -- life can suck the life out of you -- and I have sadly fallen victim to that. It is true that in order to break it, you just have to push through. Thus, my continuation of micro-fiction. Hopefully that will bleed over into my long-form prose soon.
