99 Word Prompt: The Greatest Gift

Flash fiction prompt from Carrot Ranch.  For this prompt I imagined the greatest gift not as an object but as something intangible.

September 12: Flash Fiction Challenge

“So how have you been?”

“Terrible!  I keep plugging away at my art, struggling to generate interest, hoping to find an audience, even daring to yearn for some accolades, but all I get are rejections, indifference, and the fear that things won’t get any better than this.”

“But why so glum?  Sounds to me like you’re a very lucky person.”

“Lucky?  Seriously?  I’m starting to get the feeling that I’ve wasted my life on a fruitless effort.”

“But your life has direction, purpose, a reason for being, and that is the greatest gift your art has provided for you.”
