A Burden, A Bliss - Five Sentence Fiction


Visit Lillie McFerrin Writes for more Five Sentence Fiction.
This week's prompt: Empty


A Burden, A Bliss 

Voices whisper and scream, speaking of faraway places. Pressure builds within my head as their will becomes my own. A pen, a scrap of paper, I frantically search for my writing tools. Hunger surges through me, growling, begging for reality. Words flow across the page, emptying my soul, freeing my mind, allowing me to return to you.

I get a sense your character is looking for some sort of a release valve to release everything inside and to share it with the world through their writings. Definitely thought provoking

That's exactly how writing feels for me Cher - a constant conversation going on in my head and a real need to get it down on paper, to empty my mind in order for it to be filled again.
