Competition: Mundane Musings


Mundane Musings

You've done it! You've achieved your goals and life, as it were, is 'complete'.

Now all that remains is to kick back, relax and enjoy the comfort of an inevitable sink into mediocrity. But what is a normal day like for you at that point? How do you cope with being just 'normal'? What will you do, now that there is nothing more left to do?

Write a fiction of at least 500 words exploring mundane, mediocre life from your character's point of view. Focus ought to be on how they are adjusting from a life of high-octane adventure (or other similar previous life) to a peaceful suburban slog of grocery shopping, mortgage payments and dropping the kids off at space school.

Valid submissions are accepted in .pdf, .doc and .docx formats. All entries graded using the Voice Fiction Rubric.
