FFfAW-The Healing

Harold wanted to be a writer but his hands had become so arthritic that he wasn't able to hold his quill to paper to write.

Every day he became increasingly depressed because he knew his calling was to write.

His head was filled with wonderful stories that he could not put into written words.

His sister came over and brought her friend to meet Harold. After she learned of Harold's dilemma she put her hands around Harold's hands and spoke a few words.

Suddenly, Harold's hands were filled with a wonderful white light and his Arthritis was miraculously cured.

Harold is now a writer who owes everything to his sister's mysterious friend.

  1. Or he could have used speech recognition software such as “Dragon” to dictate his stories.

    I heard a story about Rod Serling (creator of “The Twilight Zone”) once. Don’t know how true it is. His wife said he’d dictate his stories into a tape machine in his office. He’d forbid anyone to enter while he was doing this, but once when she stood at the closed door and listened, she heard him even doing the different character voices.

  2. Yay! The writer got to write. I always hate it when I want to write but can’t for some reason. It’s like an itch I can’t scratch. I’m happy his hands were restored in the end.
