Hello friends and guests
I'm really excited today. I was walking outside one day and thought about how dark it was. The kind of dark where you're looking for shadows--something--to let you know it's safe to be outside.
What if you didn't need to be afraid?
Most of my stories start with some kind of "What If" to get me going. Then, if it gels, I start typing away.
This one gelled. Please tell me what you think of the opening scene. Does it make you want to read more? Tell me what it makes you think....
“Let there be light.” - God, The Bible
Supposedly, when God created the world, the first thing He created was Light. Then, would someone please tell me what the hell happened? Where did the light go?
As I walked into the room, the first thing I noticed was the darkness. Little hard not to—as it was absolute. Nothing could be seen. No shadows. No glimmers from beneath a door frame. Nothing—pitch black. Wasn’t that a movie title?
So, you’d figure that me, being a teenage girl, would be at least a little afraid, right? Well, maybe not so much as you might think. You see, I have this ability. Not one I tell many people about. I can create light. Not just a little glimmer of light at the end of a wand—you’ve read Harry Potter, right? Well, I can do that—and more—but I don’t need a wand at all. I can do these things with just a thought.
Thanks for any and all input! And, if you read this much--you can win a $10 amazon or B&N Gift Card by commenting and following the blog. I'll pick one winner from all comments via Random.org
Edit: typo fixed, thanks for telling me! Up to 2k words now. I think this one is going to be fun! Going to try for 10k words by bedtime.
