    Hi, I'm experimenting with creative writing - let me know what you think :-)

    She gazed down at her hands. Bright pink polish on thin wiry fingers. How was she here? Progress she had been promised. How fake it all was. She saw it now. The only difference was that this time she couldn't escape.
    She had to sit with it: This world. The lies. The selfishness.
    How she was not built for it.
    But in a strange way she missed it. Listening earnestly. Smiling emptily. Everything that was asked of her. Nothing more nothing less.
    She didn't know them and they certainly didn't know her. But in their glass business rooms, their packed bars, she had played their roles in short skirts, high heels, soft lipstick.
    What had it given it her? Nothing. But that was the point. All the women would be pushed one day or another. What could they be used for?

    I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    Bless you thanks so much! Unfortunately I have notebooks with many paragraphs but can't seem to string them together but will keep trying :-)

    Excellent! Bloody spectacular. I myself dabble in a little creative writing every now and then. Mostly off the top of my head, and it has to be done VERY quickly. My wrist is usually stinging by the time I put the pen down.
