It wasn’t the most unbelievable thing that her mattress became a raft, floating her out to sea during the hurricane. What was unbelievable was the sound of the wind, calling her name in the hoarse final breath of her father.
Notes: October— a time to celebrate and practice writing bite-size! Every day in observing Inktober, I write a 50-word fiction with a scary/spooky spin. I believe Inktober may have started as a drawing challenge and I have found great visual prompts from artists on sites such as DeviantArt. Sometimes I don’t use word prompts. Today’s fiction nugget is something that occurred to me, then I found this great image on flickr.
Have a great Sunday.—Margaret
PS I like writing in a small spiral notebook like this so I can visualize the size of the story as I write. This is a Mead Cambridge 6×4, 70 sheet. I prefer notebooks that are not too precious. This is a quality workhorse in that it aids being held in the hand w/its sturdy cardboard back. I can also easily tuck it into a purse. Tools are important. Not absolutely critical of course but anything I can do to help myself, I’ll do it. ❤
