Lydia blamed the machine at the We-Haven’t-Remodeled-So-We’re-Still-Cheap grocery store. She asked for a little celebratory cheer—for the machine to honk with the abandon of Las Vegas slots. This machine substituted cruel silence before it waited for the punch of a finger pad, before it ate a dollar, and before it mumbled another losing lottery ticket.

Consistency is also a practice. I feel like I’ve been trying to get back to a consistent writing practice for months now. At least the three sentence stories have grounded my goal.

Thank you.

I can identify with trying to get back to that consistent writing practice. Especially since the holidays. I feel like I can’t get back into a good writing rhythm.
