Five Sentence Fiction: VICTORY

Today the new prompt was released for five sentence fiction and I have decided to spend 10 minutes writing it, ok it was more like 5 but still.

I have definitely noticed that I have a different style than others - I tend to write quite simply and veer more towards feelings than surroundings and this is also true of my poems.

So with victory as a the prompt, can I just say...tadaa!

There was no such thing in her mind as a small victory, they were all huge, and she resented that her best friend said that there were. If it was a victory (regardless of size) then surely it needed to be celebrated and preferably with dinner and cocktails at her favourite restaurant. Had she not had to fight the urge to give up when it all seemed insurmountable? Had she not had to delve into the deepest caverns of a well hidden mental resource and manipulate herself into not giving up and achieve her target? It was a victory, a battle she had won, today she would not be late for work.


Have a great weekend!

    Sometimes it is the smallest victory that is the hardest to achieve.
