I’ve been very lucky in this blogging world, I’ve made some wonderful friends. I may not see them often…or ever…but that doesn’t mean they are any less a friend than someone I see often. Tara is one of those people I’m lucky to call friend. She was one of the first I established a friendship with and it’s still going strong all these years later.
Recently she took over Velvet Verbosity’s 100 Word Challenge. To find out more about this weekly writing prompt, you can find information here. This weeks challenge is ‘PECULIAR’. And, I’m just going to wing it, as usual.
She was vaguely aware of the crowd gathering. The stiffness of the concrete and the cold wetness of the muddy snow went unnoticed as her eyes shifted past the skeletal trees. Strange how the clouds were making such a commotion as they tore across the sky. And the swarm of black flecks swooping up and down as one, that was peculiar as well. If she were the believing type like her Momma, this would have been an ominous premonition. As her eyes closed she thought, Flocks of birds bring bad things, that was one thing her Momma was right about.
