Weekend Writing Warriors – Time Bubble Blues 11

Good morning! Here are your next eight sentences from ‘Time Bubble Blues.’ At this point, we’ve jumped back into another flashback of Jack and his family, from when he was getting ready to go to his TimeBubble room for the first time.


First snippet Second snippet Third snippet Fourth snippet Fifth snippet Sixth snippet Seventh snippet Eighth snippet Ninth snippet Tenth snippet

“Grandpa, will you come with us to the park on Saturday?” Mindy asked him. Jack looked up and saw her standing in the doorway. “I’m gonna start as goalie for the first time.”

“No, sweetie, I’m sorry.” Jack turned back to the screwdrivers he was packing, and thought about how many screws he’d need. “But your brother’s birthday is in three weeks, and I’ll see you then.”

“Yeah, I know. You’re going to be coming to birthday parties for a long, long time, but we’re not going to see you at all, except for that.”

    I’ve loved time travel stories ever since Heinlein’s The Door Into Summer. I can’t wait to read all of this! The emotional impact of all you lose when/if you do this is staggering. What do you gain vs what you will miss. Heartbreaking.
