NanoWrimo!
November 4th, 2017 by Coral

So I had a fun experience this year, where on October 31st I still didn’t know what I was going to do for NanoWrimo. So I just picked a story idea I had and went for it.

 

This particular story idea didn’t work out, so on day four I changed it. Today I started my new story for Nanowrimo. Here is the intro snippet:

 

“What do you see when you close your eyes?”

 

Minnie looked up at the adults with wide eyes, not sure what they meant.  What did they see when they closed their eyes, she wondered. She was sitting in the garden, her blindfold now hanging around her neck. The dirt in front of her had been moved and shifted into patterns by her small, four year old hands.

 

There were so many colors, Minnie’s gaze wandered as she watched the birds overhead, their feathers shining in the sun with a rainbow of beauty. They dove and rose with the gusts of wind, some landing to perch on the roof of the house. The leaves on the trees swayed in the same wind, dancing in between shades even as she watched.

 

“Minnie, listen,” her mother said, kneeling to look her in the eye. “What do you see when you close your eyes?”

 

Minnie smiled, looking at her mother.

 

“Everything.”
