100 Word Challenge for Grownups: Transformations

Here we are in 2013, and Julia at the 100 Word Challenge for Grownups has another seasonal prompt for us to use as the springboard for a hundred (and three) words of fiction:

…as midnight struck…

Please let me know what you think of my take on the prompt!


As midnight struck, I realized I had broken another New Year’s resolution: Get enough sleep. I had such wonderful plans for 2013, too, only a week ago. A whole new me – a complete transformation.

Let’s see, how am I doing so far? New Year’s Day – well, that tray of Christmas cookies was only going to go stale if somebody didn’t eat them, so I did. So much for resolution number 1. Day by day, one resolution after another…broken, all of them, less than a week into the year.

Ahhh. Being the old familiar version of me is so much more comfortable.
