Six Word Story: Revealing

Vicious words exposed seething bitterness within.

This was written for The Sometimes Stellar Storyteller’s Six Word Story Challenge. This week’s prompt is: Revealing.

I actually put together this post at the weekend, during a lull in the chaos at work  – as usual, finding the picture took longer than anything else. I then forgot about it as soon as I got home and returned to work on my novel! Oops. :s Fortunately I’m now in the final stretch of CampNaNoWriMo and so should become slightly more active on the blog soon. Having said that, I do still have several dozen edits to work through before I can call my novel anything like complete, so I’m unlikely to be quite as active as I was before.

Anyway, I suppose I ought to get back to my dragons now :D, so I’m going to post and run.

Thanks in advance for visiting! I’ll try to visit all of your wonderful blogs soon.


TLT: Quiet Companionship

This post is for Sonya’s Three Line Tales.  This week I’ve shamelessly interpreted that as three sentences – three lines was just not enough!

Quiet Companionship

Each evening she adds another word to the game, aged fingers curling around worn tiles, placing them with precision reminiscent of misplaced youth. The empty house echoes with memories of good-natured rivalry, of competition and quiet companionship now lost to eternity’s embrace. In the light of each morning she finds her opponent’s response: carefully arranged tiles in tangence to her own.

I apologize for my absence from the blog lately – the Easter holiday is a busy time for me. Unfortunately I’m not going to be on much during April either as I’m taking part in Camp Nanowrimo. Hopefully I’ll manage to get a few little posts (like this one) up but I probably won’t have much time for visiting blogs. I’m going to have a lot of catching up to do in May! I appreciate everyone who drops by so I’ll say a big ‘thank you’ now before I go and lose myself in my story, ‘Age of the Dragonlords’.
