January’s Penultimate Friday Fictioneers

Just a brief post today since I’m headed to my first writer conference of the year! It’s only about an hour and a half away in Roanoke, VA, and will have perhaps 100 attendees compared to the 12,000 at AWP next month. In Seattle. I haven’t been to Seattle since 2008, when I had to go there to conduct an investigation into a whistleblower’s complaint, so it will be great to go with no pressure.

Friday Fictioneers LogoOnce again I took an idyllic photo prompt and went to the apocalypse, but, hey, that’s what I do. What can I say? I see something beautiful and I can’t help but wonder about the ugly underbelly. “Keep Calm and Carry On” borrows its title from a British slogan during the Blitz of World War II, but the story is about accepting inevitability with grace.

As usual, if you don’t see the link on the title in the paragraph above, scroll to the top of the page, click on the Friday Fictioneers icon, then select the story from the drop-down list.

I live for your constructive comments.
