Day 2 of Photo Series

15 Aug

Well, here’s what I can say so far about this experiment with photo prompts: Both yesterday and today I did come up with a shorty pretty quickly and I wrote each with relative speed and ease. They are both odd, and I like that. But both lack… depth and feeling. Of course it’s not like I never have that problem otherwise. And maybe the photo series shorties will get better. On to the next!


Working Title: Coffee Break
1st Sentence: Diane pulled her purse out of the lower desk drawer as she watched the digital clock rewrite the time from 9:59 to 10:00.
Favorite Sentence: The day Diane McCluskey doesn’t march out of the office at exactly 10:00 AM to fetch a café au lait is the day long-dormant volcanoes erupt, continents split, the heavens rain bullfrogs.
Word Length: 872
