Mystery Box Day 5!

27 Oct

My week is going faster than usual, even, because I’m doing so much editing. Hoping for a much lighter November. I hand-wrote today’s shorty, which is something I haven’t done in a while. I highly recommend going back and forth between hand-writing and composing on the keyboard. There’s something so sensual about running a pen across the page—I think I access my writing brain a little differently. The photo shows today’s inspiration—a little notion that looks like a button (but isn’t) resting on the paper I used to write the story. The notion is embossed with the figure of a… moth… butterfly… dragonfly? I saw a dragonfly at first, so that’s what inspired my story. Now I’m not so sure, but the story, in any case, is a wrap.

Working Title: Naming
1st Sentence: My given name is Maxine.
Favorite Sentence: Try to ride a breeze, you with your thick hide, your body modeled on a grand scale, modeled for strength, for stature.
Word Length: 295
