Life and Times of a Mommy(:


on April 22, 2013

He dug himself a whole in the ground. Was that how the saying went? He usually messed up a word or two in long sayings. All he knew was he was screwed. Out of luck. Done for.

James stared up at the ominous building. The only ting that looked remotely eye catching about the building he may or may not work in anymore is the molding stuff around the top. The fray stone held nothing interesting. The windows, nondescript rectangles of glass, looked over a bleak street.

Time to face the music, he thought. The revolving door seemed to spin faster than usual, a flood of people going in and out. The elevator, the slowest on in the entire city, was of course packed with people up until floor twelve. Two more floors. Then his fate would be decided. One more floor. Then he would come clean. James stepped out into the plush white carpet and turned to face a secretary who gave nothing away.

Dug a hole. Not in the ground, just a hole. He dug himself a hole. That was the saying.


The sentence we were to start with this week is “he dug himself a hole in the ground”. There was also a photo to reference. Go check the photo and other stories out! Don’t forget to vote Thursday and Friday!!

    The ambiguity is killing me! I like the countdown.

      Thanks (: I wanted to do more for the countdown of the floors but I didn’t think it would fit and I couldn’t think of something for most of the floors!

    Nemesis looming. Really well depicted. I hope they let him off lightly.

    This is great! I love how you come full circle with the opening line — and how you build tension as he makes his way through the building. Great use of the prompts!

    What a great, tension-filled piece of writing!

  5. I love the tension throughout the story…
