Daily Prompt: Mirror Mirror

When I look in the mirror, I . . .

  • Flinch
  • Wonder where I put the Windex
  • See an old person I don’t recognize
  • Wonder which of my kids got footprints on the mirror
  • See my mother
  • Wonder how the kid got footprints on the mirror
  • Wonder how long I’ve had that big zit on my chin
  • Give thanks my kids will never have a Chicken Pox scar like the one near my nose
  • Realize I need a lip wax
  • Sigh
  • Wonder where my cheekbones went
  • Smile anyway


Author: A.J. Goode

I am a romance novelist, single mother of three, and a high school lunchlady. To be completely honest, I have no idea which of those jobs is the most rewarding and which is the biggest challenge. I love them all. I write romance novels about the kind of people who might pass me on the street every day. My characters are often hurting in some way, and need to learn to trust others in order to heal themselves. I also blog about trying to focus on writing, and about my day-to-day experiences in small-town America. I write about life. The good, the bad, and the just plain odd.
