These are the last six sentences I wrote during NaNoWriMo. This is a continuation of my 2010 project, still unfinished. I added about 32 000 words to this story (to the 80 000 I wrote during NaNoWriMo 2010 and 5-10K since). It’s still not finished yet… “What were you doing at the mall?” She asked, [...]
Excerpt from “The Mystery”; a NaNoWriMo 2012 project… Doris Willoughway was crazy: certifiably, effing, no one could deny it, crazy. I mean, what else can you think when all she does all day, everyday, is walk up and down the street – and, you gotta realize, it’s a short damn street. Up and down; north [...]
Excerpt from “The Bench”; a NaNoWriMo 2012 project… “How do you think the clouds move like that?” “That’s easy,” she said, jumping off the bench and flopping down beside him, shoving his legs out of the way. ”God blows on them. Everyone knows that!” “Yeah, I guess, but isn’t He kind of busy for that?” [...]
Excerpt from “The Cliff”; a NaNoWriMo 2012 project… Turning away from the happy tourists making their way back to the car with the Massachusetts license plates – probably to continue on to the next snapshot, the next Kodak moment – she picked up an apple that sat closest to her. It was definitely not edible [...]
(Previously) You could say we have some kind of ‘relationship’, but it’s not enough and it’s certainly flawed. You could say I’m always there for her when she needs me; you could say she’s using me. All I can think is that I want to see more of her and, as if she can hear [...]
(Previously) The third time he saw her, it was because something told him to take a detour and after, he wasn’t sure if he was happy about it or not. Why did he only see her when she was upset? He didn’t mind comforting her, but he longed to see her smile or hear her [...]
“Oh, I understand; I understand completely. You are an idiot.” “What are you talking—” I started as my hands, that had been scrubbing the supper dishes harder than necessary, stilled in the cooling water of the kitchen sink. “I’m talking about you and your screwed up ideas; and everything else that comes out of your [...]
(Previously) The next time he saw her was at the mall. All around him, mindless souls wandered; zombies hunting for bargains instead of brains. In amongst that sea of bodies, he saw her: she was sitting in the middle of the food court, a burger forgotten on the chipped table in front her. Her head [...]
(Previously) It started how it always does, though never how it happens in the movies: I bumped into her in the university cafeteria line. We looked at each other with shy smiles, said ‘excuse me’ at the same time, and danced awkwardly around each other before we finally orbited out of each other’s gravity field. [...]
Take a moment to just stand there. Close your eyes and savour the moment. Take a deep breath. Your mouth waters at the smells. Cinnamon and nutmeg; roasting chestnuts and bratwürst; incense and licorice. The crowd swirls around you – laughing, chatting in several different languages, bustling to get their shopping done. The night air [...]
