A few blogs back I was trying to be creative and productive so I assembled a few found antiques and pondered if they would inspire a story. After writing a dramatic structure I was satisfied to just leave it alone but wondering what reaction there would be to it. There have been three responses.
One blog response from a stranger who wondered what the heck I was writing but said she enjoyed reading my stuff so she would keep reading. Another response was from TBLN who knows me very well as I’m her maternal aunt. TBLN gave me some feedback on my creative effort as she really gets what I’m trying to do at this beginning point in my retired life as I pick up on a childhood dream to write stories. Finally a neighbour friend just told me with a big grin that she can’t wait to find out why Evelyn , the interfering, palsied neighbour was tormented by the pocket watch…..Well, how the heck do I know?
Maybe it’s because…….
a) the pocket watch once belonged to the interfering neighbour (Evelyn) but she lost it to Melissa in a bet over who would win the best church pie contest …… OR
b) Evelyn had once treasured the watch as a gift from a suitor but he had a change of heart and taken the watch back, intending to woo Melissa with it as they both were great lovers of literature and poor Evelyn was more into horseshoeing but he was hit with a bolt of lightning as he was preparing to present it to her and it was found in his seared clenched fist ….. OR
c) It could only mean one thing, …that Frieda was back in town and bared watching ! (Sorry.)
