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.

  1. Sounds like me too! Nicely done as always.

  2. well you can only be who you are 🙂

  3. I bet this describes a lot of people around the world. It is so hard to break old habits…

  4. Excellent and my first week in the New Year.

  5. How much better to have a goal of not allowing the cookies to go stale rather than a resolution of not to eat any.

    You are doing just fine 🙂

  6. Simple, but a perspective we can all relate to, I’m certain! Such relaxed resolution at the end, too…nice not to feel the guilt! 😀
