Frustration – A Flash Fiction

Frustration - A Flash Fiction

I have never felt so lost in my life, totally overwhelmed, on the deepest level.
How am I supposed to tackle this task, when I don’t even know what half of this means?
These instructions are the worst example of directions I have ever experienced.
And I only got till 8 pm, when everything has to be perfect.
My hands are shaking with frustration, as I toss the cookbook onto the kitchen counter.

This Flash Fiction was inspired by the book “The 4 Hour Chef”, by Timothy Ferriss, who tackles the frustrations of cooking and cookbooks while teaching you how to learn everything (review coming soon!)

P.S. Check out my debut Flash Fiction collection “A Darker Slice of Life” on Smashwords!

    • Thank you Jon. Currently I am working myself through the most unorthodox version of a cookbook (the book I mentioned in my post), but I got more out of that, then I got out of the last 5 combined. Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
