I hope everybody had a wonderful holiday weekend and spent a little extra quality time with family and friends. Memorial Day is the official start of the summer season and I thought what better way to start off the Princesses summer blog than with a little writing exercise. LOL
So, let’s all put on our creative writing hats and do a bit of writing today. I’ll start you off with a few sentences, just to get the ball rolling.
You can take the story in any direction you want. It can be contemporary romance, suspense, paranormal, futuristic, mystery, or comedy. Whatever and wherever your creative flow directs it, we’ll all follow along and join in the fun.
Let’s make it simple. In the comment section of this post, read the story as it progresses. Each person who wants to join in can add up to 5 sentences to the story (at a time). Feel free to keep coming back and see what direction each person takes our story. We’ll keep adding to it all day long. You can definitely add to the story more than once. The more the merrier. . .let's just keep it going and going and going.
It’s that easy. Read what’s already been added, and then put your own spin on it. Dialogue, introspection, setting, weather. Everything and anything goes.
BUT PLEASE REMEMBER, THIS IS AN OPEN BLOG – SO NO PROFANITY AND NO EXPLICIT SEXUAL LANGUAGE/SITUATIONS. People under 18 have free access to our blog so we want to make sure to keep everything PG rated.
Okay – let’s here our jumping off point -- start of the story.
A flash of light illuminated the interior of the car quickly followed by the rumble of thunder, so loud it vibrated the floorboards. The wipers slicked back and forth in a rhythmic pattern across the windshield, squeaking as they pushed the rain away and displaying the enormous movie screen. A static-filled speaker filled the car with music as the credits rolled. Sarah looked in the rear-view mirror at the three sleeping children sprawled in the back seat fast asleep. She couldn’t hide the little smile tugging at the corners of her lips; they’d missed the ending of their favorite movie—again.
Kathy Ivan is busy at work on multiple projects, writing like crazy on her romantic suspense and her paranormal romances. Her latest release, Second Chances, a paranormal romance, is available now at all e-retailers.
