Friday flash 55 #30

Charlotte drove, feeling disconnected from the steering wheel. At a stoplight, she tilted the rearview mirror and looked at herself, just to see if she was real. Large, round sunglasses framed her beautiful face, and she saw the beauty looking back at her. She just didn’t feel it inside.

    I didn’t see the ad either, but I’m showing up a day late.

    The character study you are doing through your flashes is absolutely phenomenal. I really got this one and after reading it the character almost haunted me in some way. That is good stuff!

      Thanks, DS – I am really working on some thoughts with this character. I like Charlotte, she’s maybe the first character I’ve written that I really, really liked. I want to know more about her and I want write more about her. I might start plotting something soon, but for now things are just rattling around in my brain (and a little of it on paper). 😀

    Very well done, my friend. You revealed a lot in your 55 words.

    It hit home with me because, well not because I’m beautiful because I’m not, but because the way I feel inside doesn’t often match up with the cheerfulness I try to maintain on the outside.

    Perhaps that’s more common than we know?

    Nice flash. One of these days I’ll get back to my Flash 55s.
    BTW: Am I the only one that sees the HUGE Google ad on your page?

    This flash creates more questions than answers. What’s up with Charlotte? Did she just lose her high paying modeling job? Her husband? Did she so something wrong and is feeling remorse/regret? Good job!
