Action: Doing a puzzle
Word: Circle
Word Count: 100


Gazing upon the heap of dusty fragments, she feels defeated before she starts. Such drudgery organizing this chaotic pile. A daunting but necessary task if she wants to play the game.

Best to make it bite-sized. Erect the walls, find the cornerstones, build the framework.

So much effort, just to begin.

It gets easier. As each piece slips into place, a dopamine rush inspires her to keep going.

Once complete, a momentary satisfaction does reward. Then the picture gets broken apart and circles back to the heap from whence it came, stowed in a cardboard box, awaiting its next player.
