Hey guys. Welcome to Weekly Writing Wednesday. Today is jam packed for me. (I'm writing this while at work; bad girl!) Anyway, I've been getting such great responses and hope you all do this one as well. Here we go!
Write a short/mini story (only 100-250 words max). Start the story with, "They had nothing to say to each other."
Ready, Set, Go!
Here's what I wrote...
They had nothing to say to each other. The silence in the room was palpable and making the hair on her arms stand on end. She looked into the eyes of a man that she once loved and felt absolutely nothing for him. Not only had he broken her trust but her heart now lay broken on the floor. She stood up from the kitchen table needing to put space between them.
She hoped that maybe after thinking about the situation, she would feel differently. Deep down, she knew this was not the case. Her husband stood up, rocking his chair back and lunged for her.
âIâm so sorry.â The now stranger said to her, his voice devoid of any and all emotion
âMe too.â She whispered, leaving her house in hopes of getting clarity.
Only about 150 words but hey, I'm at work. What's your excuse? Try it out now and let me know what you wrote. I love seeing all of your work!

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
-JLH for Wingless
