NaBloPoMo Day 7
Every week I join in with a writing group over at Ink Paper Pen. (please check it out, it's great!)
Each week we are given a writing prompt by Gill and the idea is to set your timer for 5 minutes and write the first word that come into your head (you can go back and edit:).
I have an ongoing story about a character called Rock Chick(check my sidebar if you want to know more)
This weeks writing prompt is:
Write On Wednesdays Exercise 23 - Write the words of Margaret Atwood at the top of your page "We are learning to make fire". Set your timer to 5 minutes. Write the first words that come into your head after the prompt. Stop when the buzzer rings.
I wasn't familiar with this poem so I read it and decided to use the line 'I watch you, watching me' as my inspiration this week.
This is a direct follow on from last weeks story.
The Pull of the Moon
Making her way across the crowded room she could feel his eyes watching her every move.
She drew strength from his unwavering gaze as the memories wrapped tendrils around her heart. Tugging her back just as surely as the moon controls the tides.
Sliding a hand around her waist he pulling her towards him kissing the high curve of her cheekbone.
His other hand slipped behind her neck, pulling her closer still.
Breathing in her scent.
His fingertips touched her face where his lips had been. Slowly tracing the line of her jaw. His thumb grazing her mouth.
"You touch my soul" he whispered..
Reflected in the mirror above the bar she could see the golden orb of the moon hanging low in the sky.
Calmly watching ... Patiently waiting ...
