About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    This is really interesting for a number of reasons, the main one probably being the idea that the story may be about you. That poses questions like “Are you Jenny?” …… which you should NOT answer because an air of mystery is always good. Asking readers how to end it is an interesting concept and I would suggest the “lived happily ever after” would be totally inappropriate. Interested to see other comments! 🙂

    • Thanks Colin. I’m looking forward to feedback too. 🙂

        My suggestion, assuming you are looking for a big project, is to take the story “off blog”, and expand it into a book. I personally love the concept of cycles so if (in this story) they met and everything worked out fine until one of the sons went “off the rails”, or there was a “misunderstanding” of a friendship (or similar) such that the cycle experienced by Jenny was repeated ……….. that would be cool! If you want to leave it as a short story: Jenny makes arrangements to meet with Jim at a restaurant but he does not show up. End of story and the reader is left guessing. 🙂

      • Interesting thought……………………….

  2. I’ve absolutely no idea how to finish this. I suppose it depends on whether you want a happy, unhappy, or we’ll see what over time ending. There again you could get a visit by the police who were trying to track anyone who knew Jen.
