Working for Miss Lucy

Written for Friday Fictioneers.


I hated working for Lucy. “I’m sorry about this interruption to our project” she said.” I had to send you away before because of your little hissy fits about writing my life story. It seems you still havn’t been able to control your emotions. After all it is just the first of seven I have asked you to write. Wait till I get to number three, now that’s a doozy.”

“When you come back after the  holidays we will see how things stand. I expect…”it was the briefest of pauses—“we shall be able to work again by then.”

    The cat’s definitely in control. I wonder what happened in her third life? Clever story.

      I am currently owned by three cats. They inform me who is control starting every morning. Thanks for stopping by.

      Thanks! The idea came from owning a cat named Lucy. She was THE devil.

    Heh, the cat accuses the writer of having hissy fits. I wonder what else went wrong to make them unable to collaborate. It’s difficult to have such a scratchy employer. Happy Holidays. 🙂

    I wonder what pieces of emotion were not being controlled while writing a life story. It certainly makes you think 🙂 great story.

    Sounds like the trials and tribulations of a ghost writer. I hope things work out. Well done, Danny. — Suzanne
