Friday Fictioneers 15th January

Once again our thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting the Friday Fictioneers photoprompt challenge. You can find out more here
This week our photoprompt is courtesy of Dale Rogerson.
She stood backstage, waiting for her cue and big break.
The lights came up, and the applause was deafening.
She walked out, cheers and whistles echoing round the auditorium with each step.
Her backing band started the intro as she took to the mike.

Without singing a single note, she made front page news, just as she’d hoped.
Sadly she wasn’t there to see it having suffered a fatal heart attack on stage.

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.
