Friday Fictioneers: Typewriter

PHOTO PROMPT © Jeff Arnold

“She was such an imaginative child. The stories she told, we thought she was lying about everything.”

“Didn’t the doctor diagnose her as schizophrenia when she was a teenager?”

“All those people in her head. We thought it was the best answer.”

“She seems fine now.”

“It’s amazing, how calm she is now.”

“What did the doctors do? Was it therapy or meds?”

“Neither. It was a typewriter.”

“What do you mean a typewriter?”

“Seem all those people her head were characters in her stories. She needed an outlet to clear her head. My daughter’s not schizophrenia, she’s an author.”
