You sit at your workstation and stare at your computer screen. You look out the window. Another beautiful Summer-like day in Spring in Pittsburgh. You think of something funny a friend told you yesterday. You wonder if that cute young woman who went out of her way to talk to you last Saturday night at karaoke will be at karaoke this Saturday night.
Maybe you should get up and get a beer. Yeah, a nice cold beer would taste great right now. There must be at least two left in the refrigerator. You’re pretty sure you didn’t drink the whole six-pack last night.
But no. You’ve got to get down at least the first paragraph of your new flash fiction story before you do anything else. You take a deep breath and begin.
Mary Anderson woke up with a hangover and naked on her livingroom floor. Again. Everyone else must have gone home. The first thing she thought was, I’m thirty-nine. I’m too damn old and make too much money to be living like this…

The Old Soldier had a good time last night at karaoke at Nico’s in Little Italy.
Well, some of the other karaoke singers are starting to catch up with me. The monitor that the lyrics appear on faces the audience. This means that the singer always has his or her back to part of the audience.
I have newly made it a point of memorizing the lyrics of the song (songs) that I sing so that I always face and can interact with the audience. Last night a couple of the singers knew the lyrics well enough to face the audience, too. That is the first time I’ve seen that happen.
The Old Soldier always moves and grooves to the song (my Jim Morrison persona demands it). Last night a middle-age guy (younger than the Old Soldier) danced during the instrumental of his song. I’ve seen him sing karaoke many times and he never danced before.

The Old Soldier is having an impact on karaoke in the #1 karaoke bar in the city. It’s a win-win situation for everybody.
The Old Soldier hopes he can have the same impact on blogs and other publications about flash fiction on the Internet.
