Something Delicious

There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you. ~Beatrix Potter

I have always loved creative writing. I have snippets of stories in my head, on bits of paper, and on my computer. I thought it would be fun to post bits now and then and see where they take us!  I've highlighted what I have written.  Who do you think they are? What do you think might happen?  When and where does this take place? And why is he waiting?  Enjoy!

By all appearances, he was a good man, a kind man. Yet his heart was as black ice ~ silent and treacherous. He lay waiting for just the right opportunity when she would slip up. It was bound to happen. We all slip up sometimes but not always with such dire consequences.

  1. Ooooh....you have me on pins and needles, my friend! I do hope you'll continue on with this story :) Maybe the woman is in love with the man and he thinks she is too good to be true. Is he waiting for her to slip up because her goodness and kindness can't possbily be real. Maybe the story is set in the 1800's....

    Can't wait to learn more! Hugs to you!

  2. I think all of us bloggers are writers at heart Gina. I am like you, I make up stories in my head all the time. and I have done so since I was a girl. I forgive you for being a Clemson Fan. LOL Coach Sweeney is one class act and I was glad to hear him give God the Glory for a successful season.

    1. Arlene, I guess when your daughter marries, you marry the family too. So go Clemson (sorry!)

  3. hmmmm you got me stumped on this one, my hubby and daughter loved to write and they are very good but I am not a big reader anymore and have never been good at writing. :( I use to read quite a few books but it has been a few years since I have read anything but the bible, not sure what happened, guess I just have other interest that fill up my time

    1. Connie, I understand. I don't read as much as I use to either. My sight isn't as great and reading does tire them but I'd like to get back into reading more.

We all have our “good old days” tucked away inside our hearts, and we return to them in dreams like cats to favorite armchairs. ~ B. Carter
