(For some reason this wouldn’t post yesterday. If you’re looking for the NaNoWriMo peptalk, scroll down one post)
Since it’s Thanksgiving week, the Friday Fictioneers are quiet today, but I still wanted to write, so I went back in time to the picture inspiration from just before I joined them. Here’s what I came up with:
“Horses in the mist? That’s it?”
“What would you prefer?”
“Something more dramatic. Something…”
“You do the names, I just paint them.” Hayley stepped away from the window to study her latest creation. The horses looked proud and unfettered; no one owned them.
“Better names need more commission.”
“More than 20%?”
“75% of something is better than 80% of nothing.” Fiona was used to getting her own way, even in her sister’s gallery.
Hayley picked up the card from the easel and took the pen. “Don’t worry,” she said, “I’ll name it myself.”
Freedom was her biggest success.

Fasinating – you just get better and better!
I forgot about that picture and I really liked it too. Your story goes with it perfectly!
