Random Conversation

22 Nov

This time a physical description from a conversation with a friend about someone she had met recently inspired the shorty. This challenge is teaching me how to find story in just about anything.

Working Title:
The Scar
1st Sentence: Sergei’s scar started just below his hairline over the left eyebrow and cut across his face on an almost perfect diagonal, slashing his nose and barely missing his mouth.
Favorite Sentence: And then those moments were no longer about the simple perfection of an arithmetic equation or the way the morning sun in deepest winter glazes the sky over a frozen river, no longer about the color and scent of inspiration.
Word Length: 1,017
