Have some flash fiction for the first day:
Aoide wiped her damp palms on her dress and walked towards the stage. This was it.
She had spent her life explaining that her name wasn't a typo, she wasn't called Aoife, and that her mother had named her after a Greek muse.
'Aoide' meant 'to sing.' Ironically, Aoide couldn't. Her mother and father, who sang in the local bar every Friday night, had never considered the possibility that their kid may turn out to be totally unlike either of her parents.
Well, they were about to find out just how much. Aoide stood before the microphone and took a deep breath.
