Recently I discovered this very interesting creativity outlet for a “wanna-be” writers, and decided to take part in one of their Wednesdays write-ins. As this short story is super short, I hope you will forgive me. Other than that I will be happy if you enjoy!
At first it was drizzling and raining, then danging, and drum rolling, rumbling and sparkling; seemed like someone decided to empty all reservoirs of natures water on a poor London. Nothing new, it was raining, in fact, it is always raining down there. As many others, she was sitting in doors, with a cup of Earl Grey, in front of the computer, twisting her mind inside and out and trying to develop something: a line, or maybe two, some quote or random saying, maybe lyrics from the song, or a proverb? While roaming through endless words and sentences, she really could not see that her beautiful mind and soul were in starvation for some quality food. Something that would make her thoughts race faster and creativity splash! But no, she could not see it, she could only think in one direction making her body sweat under the levels of pressure, while sitting and doing nothing. What was it? What could possible cause so much of an irritation? What caused this disturbia?
“Life is boring, it’s raining outside” – that’s what she wrote as a status on Facebook.

Great description of the rain. Love the line at the end. Good job! 🙂
Thank you for the feedback! Means a lot to me, and I love to describe certain events using repeating sounds in different description words, in this case it was rain and thunder storm, so a lot of “dr, d, r, g” sounds were used.
The description was very powerful, and succinctly put into words the position we’ve ALL been in too often! Stuck!
Well done – love the contrast between the language of her thoughts & her expression of them! Very effective piece !
Thank You for the feedback! That is what I wanted to show: how rich and splendid can be our inner world, yet what a cheap and fake opinions we deliver to the society…Sad!
