Have you lived before? Have you seen yourself in novels? These five sentences say it all…
Lillie McFerrin posts a “Five Sentence Fiction” prompt.
This week it is: Pages
The Pages of My Life
I swear, Shania, that I saw my life there in the pages of your book.
Gobina, you must be mistaken as this is a novel from years gone by.
I was there in your book, I tell you, and I know now what it all means.
Then tell me, Gobina, please whisper the secrets to me as I must know your story.
Too late, Shania inhaled sharply, as she watched Gobina evanesce, funnel-like, in-between the ecru thick-linen sheaves of parchment where she believed she had lived, and where her heart-beat dwelled, warmly, eternally.
Unknowingly a tale in the book resembles someone’s life. Life imitate books and books imitate life.
How novel of you to point that out… 😉 Randy
I agree with you…I really like this.
You have captured the dilemma of a writer perfectly here, Randy! Good one 🙂
Now that I’ve captured it, what do I do with it?
That’s my dilemma, eh? Randy
Yes, we can get lost in a book.
I can get lost just coming out of my bathroom.
Thanks for your comment. Randy
I know the feeling.
Your feeling is my reality. (smile)
