sunday scribblings - winter theme

for today's sunday scribblings, i'm a bit late tonight....and not totally complete. at some point i will add to this and link back.

"the winter light"
she pushed the heavy drapery back from the 3rd floor window of her flat. peering out onto the usually busy main street now serenely calm in the mid morning dullness, she sighed and pressed the palm of her hand against the cold pane of glass. similar to her mood, the cold wintry rain continued to plop down onto the trees and sidewalks making the whole of the world seem suddenly barren of life.
the call had come last night somewhat unexpectedly. she was unsure how the meeting would go and wondered aloud if she ought to even make the effort at all. it was dreadfully wet outside. she decided to take the chance and if she didn't like the look of him or despised his behaviour she wouldn't bother staying for more than one drink.


  1. That is a great start to a piece, I am excited to see where it leads.

  2. Fabulous start. I can't wait to read more.

  3. Interesting! Leaves you wanting more. Next week?

  4. A blind date adventure. Nice, can't wait to read the outcome.

  5. I'm intrigued! I like how the weather reflects the narrator's feelings. I'll be looking forward to the next installment.

  6. You set the stage so well. Her mood, her lack of enthusiasm, her coldness, colors her imagination of what might be (or could possibly be) when called on an unexpected date, and leads her to plan for the worst. Though your piece seems quite complete to me, I do look forward to seeing what is next.

  7. What a compelling and mysterious beginning. I like the way the gloomy, almost claustrophobic weather matches her mood. Nice!


at the tone, leave a message....if you dare! :-)
