Linkup and Flicker of Inspiration Prompt #18: Objects In the Mirror

It's time to link up your posts for Flicker of Inspiration Prompt 17: Never! The idea was to begin your piece, whether it was fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or otherwise, with the word "Never." As in, "Never forget to bring a towel to the sauna."

Here's what to do:

1) Link up your post below! The linky is available until Wednesday at midnight, so don't worry if yours isn't ready just yet.

2) Read and thoughtfully respond to at least three other linkup participants. Your comments and encouragement are what makes it all worthwhile!

3) Grab a free button from the sidebar, tweet about the linkup, share on Facebook - invite all your friends to participate in our fun writing community!

4) Again, the linkup is active through Wednesday, so check back from time to time to see new posts as they come in!

And now, your new prompt - Flicker of Inspiration Prompt #18: Objects In the Mirror

It's a standard warning on car mirrors: "Objects in the mirror may be closer than they appear". Mirrors don't always give a truly honest reflection. Sometimes, the mirror is warped; sometimes, it's only our perceptions. When Alice went into her mirror, it was the world itself that was distorted. And yet at times, the mirror will show you true things that you weren't aware of; something around a corner, or behind you, or on another spectral plane. People can even act as mirrors; they can show you yourself as others see you.
In 800 words or less, tell us about something seen in a mirror. Then come back next Sunday to link up!
