Day 1 : NanoPoblano

Here’s my first post for NanoPoblano 2018. If you didn’t see the announcement post, here is how I plan to approach National Blog Posting Month.

The plan: Each day I will post a short story (maximum 300 words), which will begin with a sentence from the current book I’m reading.

The part in bold is my starter prompt, which is from The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang pg 524.

Please enjoy and let me know what you think.


“The Hexagrams can’t foresee the future,” Kim kept saying to herself as she walked along the long corridor. The floor moaned under her step. She chose each step with care because one misstep could mean certain death. It was a labyrinth of corridors and doors. Some leading nowhere and other leading to more corridors and doors.

NanoPoblano 2018

It’s been 2 years since I last posted and not for want of posting, but because I haven’t been writing. A lot has gone on. Perhaps I will catch you up at a later date, but for now let me say I’m eager to be back.

I chose this month to start posting again because I’m taking part in National Blog Posting Month, which is a month-long challenge to post everyday in November. And well, for me it was just the perfect time to get back into writing and posting.

But Erica, why is post entitled NanoPoblano 2018?

A: It’s simple really. A few years ago a blogger misunderstood NaBloPoMo and thought she heard NanoPoblano, so every year a group of us get together and join the blogging fun. We like to call ourselves Cheer Peppers! If you’re interested in joining us check out this post.

The plan: Each day I will post a short story (maximum 300 words), which will begin with a sentence from the current book I’m reading. You can see what I’m reading and of course follow me over on Goodreads.

It’s Over

It was an unusually cold fall day as Jackie waited for the estate agent to arrive. She had forgotten how cold it could get here and was completely unprepared for the frigid temperature. When the agent arrived 10 minutes later, Jackie could barely feel her toes and her fingers were completely numb. She hurried into the estate agent’s car and took control of the thermostat, turning it all the way up.

“Shall we go to the house or the hotel first?

“The house,” Jackie said shivering and rubbing her hands together. “Let’s get it over with.”

When they pulled up to the house Read More…

A Letter

Dearest Jackie,

We may never see each other again. Enemy fire is heavy. If not, know I love you.

Pat

50 years later and you’ve never stopped saying, ‘I love you’.

He called just as Lanie fell asleep.

“It’s time,” he said.

Lanie hung up, pressed a button, and in an instant it was over. Not a trace she ever existed.
