Have been asked to contribute to a flash fiction website, Rammenas. Was so happy that wrote something quite sad. Started drafting it and had to stop, as it almost made me cry- not a good idea when in the office, pretending to be busy on Excel. So, had to actually do some work for a change: to distract myself.
Got home, finished it, asked mother-in-law to read. Mother-in-law cried. Was convinced my mother would cry, too but she was too obsessed with Farmville to get emotional about some 500 word fiction.
