The Challenge is:
Write a blog post in 200 words or less, excluding the title. It can be in any format, whether flash fiction, non-fiction, humorous blog musings, poem, etc. The blog post should:
- include the word "imago" in the title
- include the following 4 random words: "miasma," "lacuna," "oscitate," "synchronicity,"
If you want to give yourself an added challenge (optional and included in the word count), make reference to a mirror in your post.
For those who want an even greater challenge (optional), make your post 200 words EXACTLY!
I've completed mine. I think my brain was on "fried mode" but I hope you can at least enjoy what I threw together. In the end, this was actually fun to do :-)
The wicked queen?
That tired old hag? She’s got nothing on us. Mirror, mirror on the wall told her so. But he got it wrong. Snow White’s a toad stool. My sister saw to that.
After Cinderella married Prince Charming, we had to leave. Staying in her happily ever after would never work. Fairy godmother created a lacuna in the section of our fairy tale just before The End. Such a dear, she loved those mice. It only took ending the squeals of one to get what we wanted, our exit and her wand.
We arrived in the queen’s chamber of conceit. Seriously, how often does a girl need a pair of milky eyes and copper toned lips to appear in a miasma of fog to tell you how gorgeous you are? Surprised, the queen oscitated. Her blood red lips formed a round O. Her hesitation made it quick work to steal the kingdom. The good fairy’s wand dispatched her to a fitting fate, forever encased in gold and glass with that ego booster of hers.
We forever claimed the land’s already existent good fortune on the synchronicity of our arrival and lived our own happily ever after.
