I've just joined the second round of Sheryl Gwyther's 52-Week Flash Fiction Challenge on Facebook and wanted to share my first post, inspired by a story recently recounted by a friend of mine.
Born to Drum (99 words)
I poured my heart and soul into my drums that day, drumming harder and faster than I’d ever drummed before.
For the first time I felt that I was one with my drums.
‘Aarghhhh!’ I screamed my head off when she tried to take them away from me, hoisting the biggest drum over my head and flinging it as far as I could.
I figured if I couldn't play it then neither could she.
Turns out that my biggest drum was leading a double life as her favourite pot.
And that’s how I ended up in the naughty corner.
