Procrastination by Candlelight

June 6, 2014 Friday Fictioneer’s Photo Prompt by Douglas M. Macilroy took me on free flight into the darkness. Join us every Friday with our host, Rochelle Wisoff-Fields in our 100 word response to a photo. Here’s mine:June 6

The electricity had been off for nearly an hour. My guests would arrive in the morning and I had waited until the last minute to clean house. Everything I had to do required electricity or more light than a candle could provide. I had been resisting an urge to work an on-line jigsaw puzzle, thinking the electricity would come on any minute, but I caved. I grabbed a candle and ran to my office, searching my cluttered desktop. As I turned the laptop on, the bright screen filled me with anticipation. My joy turned to disappointment as the electricity came on.

  1. Linda! This is so fun. Although I’ve never allowed myself to procrastinate (Father was and engineer, Mother a librarian. Both with high expectations) I could so relate to this.

  2. Linda,I enjoyed the title and the hunorous story. It sounds like me at times. It probably sounds like a lot of us at times. Well written. πŸ™‚ —Susan
