Misfortune

It was because of the lightning bolt. It was a human piece of art but it emitted some low frequencies, which messed up with Bellise’s self-control. It took her entire concentration to keep herself invisible; her dorsal fin shivered with the struggle. Still, she couldn’t help herself. She had to get to that glass pyramid….

Change To Come

She lay down the pen and looked at her notes. Some might call her a snob for still using a fountain pen and paper. Some did actually. The nicest. Other words had been used to describe her. And yet… To think that it was a thread, a discussion on social media that started her on…

Disappearance?

The horse came back alone. The grooms panicked. If anything happened to her Ladyship, the Duke would be in a fury. He wouldn’t care for excuses. That Lady Felicity never listened to anyone’s advice – not even her husband’s – wouldn’t enter the Duke’s mind. He would be out for blood. She couldn’t have fallen,…

The Beginning or the End

The kid looked at him intensely, as he orbited around her watching her through his lens. She was no kid really but her gangly frame was awkward. It was as if her body had lengthened but forgotten to fill out. He knew her to be in her early twenties but she had the curves of…

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Assault

The assault on the castle was obviously planned carefully and yet who could have foreseen the enemy would assault them in the middle of winter? ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Exhaust

Most people agreed the kid would exhaust his parents from the moment he was born; but nobody imagined he would be so fascinated by cars that he would ask his father by age 12 to help change the car exhaust. ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the…

100 Book Challenge ~ Mamma Update

I came home with my little miracle last Sunday and this week has proved one thing: I have some adjusting to do to juggle the duties of a new parent, the daily chores – even if my husband is tremendously helping with both – and my hobbies. It’s safe to say I will need to…

Sense and Sensibility ~ Jane Austen

Jane Austen’s Sense and Sensibility is a book I read in the 1990s; I still have the French translation I purchased back then. It was my first foray into Jane Austen’s work and it was a great experience. In the years that followed I watched the movie with Emma Thompson, Kate Winslet, Alan Rickman and…

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Labour

I am again a day late posting but yesterday, after almost 20 hours in labour, I am the happy, blessed mum of a little boy who decided to show up 20 days early. ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

Cold Comfort Farm ~ Stella Gibbons

Stella Gibbons’ ironic and iconic Cold Comfort Farm was the book for this week’s review; written as a satire to romantic rural stories it follows Flora Poste’s time at Cold Comfort Farm with her cousins after her parents’ death, which essentially left her penniless. That doesn’t prevent her from thinking she has what it takes…

#tuesdayuseitinasentence ~ Late

I’m so late posting, as it should have been yesterday morning’s message but as of late time seems to be elusive going at once quickly and slowly. ©scolpron2017 ___________________________________________ Here are the prompt rules: Make a sentence with the word of the week.

Dune ~ Frank Herbert

I read Frank Herbert’s Dune for the first time around the same time I read Lord of the Rings so more than 20 years ago. I read what were two volumes in French quite fast and enjoyed the story a lot, in a very different way. As I re-read it for this challenge I’m sure…
