catSo, after seeing the moon one night, I had a bit of inspiration. I decided to funnel that inspiration into a flash fiction challenge offered by Chuck Wendig over on his site, terribleminds. It was a fairly “simple” in that there weren’t many rules to the challenge: 5 sentences, 100 words or less.

This was fun.


The Cheshire cat’s grin hung low in the sky, mocking me furiously. I didn’t know why and wasn’t sure I could – or even wanted to find out. I mean, I hadn’t done anything to earn that particular grin, but there it was.

I sat on the porch until I was nearly frozen, staring and wondering. The grin was silent, keeping its answers close. When I finally went back inside, my husband looked at me with curiosity and asked, “What’s so funny?”
