I have been able to write for Fictioneers three weeks in a row. To many of you that might seem like a small thing but to me it means I am making major progress in my goals towards changing around how I schedule my life. I like it!
Well anyway it is time once again to join about 100 authors to create a 100 word story from 1 photo prompt. To see all 100-ish stories go to ROCHELLE’S PAGE HERE.
Here is our Photo Prompt and my story

Standing here above these tracks, I see it all so clearly now.
The day I joined up Mom called me by my pet name.
“Chin up Spot.” She said.
“The time has come and the wide world calls. Little boys grow up and leave their Mamas. That’s that. Besides it’s not forever and home will always be here.”
That was four years ago.
She must have known she had cancer when I left. She always had a reason I couldn’t come home.
Now I am a man with lots of roads to choose from and none of them leads home.
