Blog Flash 2012: Busy

Gosh, I was doing so well (kind of) in the Blog Flash 2012 and then I ran smack into real life (more on that in the next post). So here it is the 14th (!!!) and I am only on Day 4 of Terri Long’s killer flash blog challenge.

Fittingly Day 4 is “Busy”.

BUSY 
“Hamlet, we need to talk.”
“Not now, Ophelia.” His fingers tapped his iPhone, his eyes skittering away, “Sunday, 5ish?
“People’ve died. I mean, you accidentally killed my father and–“
“Being a monarch of Denmark, there’s something all the time.”
Ophelia stared at her hands, the fine hairs on each knuckle reflecting the light.
“Tuesday?” Hamlet said. “Just so busy.”
After he left, Ophelia drew the milky-hued bath.

Her first time, she surged up, strings of seaweed hair taped to her face.
So she placed a heavy, smooth stone on her chest. 
She didn’t leave a note. She was too busy.

  5. I κnow thіs if off tоpic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up? I’m assumіng having a blog like yours would cost a pretty рennу?

    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
