Daily Writing Challenge

I found another writing challenge to take part in, I am late to this challenge, but I have been assured that it is ok to join in now. The link is below, should you wish to try it, it comes from a blog called Johawkthewriter. The idea behind this is to write every day and the next day you post your word count on the JoHawkerTheWriter post. I think that this will be fun. It is also recommended on the site that you start with short stories, just to get you into the habit of writing.

Three Things Challenge #3

In an effort to improve my skills, I have decided to try to post some ‘creative’ things to this blog, as a record for myself. The blog below popped up when I was checking for a writing challenge to take part in, it will be fun to take part in this. The idea is that every day the Author of that Blog will post three unconnected words as inspiration for your writing that day. This is my first attempt at this, so please forgive the general awfulness of my post.

Today’s prompt words are river, sunset, safe.

                      ———————————————————–

The car was parked in a quiet area near a river at sunset, well, it was meant to be sunset, but the lashing rain and black clouds had decided to cloak the sunset from view. The woman sitting, weeping in the car felt that the weather matched her mood perfectly, as she was feeling as low as she ever had, things had not been going well for her recently and she wanted some space to breathe. Sitting, watching and listening to water, whether rivers, lakes or the sea had always brought her great peace, she didn’t want to leave her little oasis of calm, she felt safe in her car, away from the drama where no one could find her, the low light together with the heavy rain meant that everyone nearby was too distracted to look into her car. She knew she would have to leave this place soon and go home again, that she would have to turn on her phone again, but, for now, she was on her own.
