Genre/General Fiction (100 words)

A storm was approaching. I could feel the pressure in the air. Far off rumblings of thunder rolled. Electricity off  already, nothing to do but light the oil lamps. Glows warm the house as I wait. Raising my eyes to the window with awe, the excitement builds in my soul.

Unbelief wars in my heart. I was responsible for this? My first real spell had worked? The coven will be so pleased. Glancing down I read the next spell in the ancient tome. I was a daughter of a daughter of another five, chosen for power. I felt my ancestors smile.

  1. well done. second paragraph totally changed things unexpectedly. “Unbelief” shouldn’t that be “disbelief”? also, “all ready” why not “already”? also, if she was ” in the ancient tomb” would there be windows?

          I have so much to do, am moving at the end of the month, plus some new diabetic meds are messing with my mind and body. I can’t seem to sleep, but it is starting to straighten out.

      Unbelief is actually the word I wanted, so I am keeping it. The defination of it is: the state or quality of not believing; incredulity or skepticism, especially in matters of doctrine or religious faith.
      As for all ready, I changed that to already, I missed it the first time. As for tomb, I knew it was wrong. I meant tome….so it too will be changed. Thanks rich

          I taught you??? for me that is a red letter day! I taught the teacher!! Won’t see that happen too often. Seriously though rich, I DO appreciate all the help. The writing won’t get better if I don’t get help and you are one of the best.

      1. looked up “unbelief.” usually used in a religious sense, such as an “unbeliever.” not usually used in a situation like this: “i stared with unbelief as the dog pulled the boy from the burning building.” but the way you use it, i can see how it goes with believing or not believing in something in a religious direction. i didn’t see that the first time.

          I have to admit I hesitated in using it, but….. Wicca is a type of religion so in this case it was used in a religious usage, so I kept it. Sometimes it’s good to use words one wouldn’t normally. true?

          1. yes – except when one uses words they have to look up just to be different. my rule is never try to impress a reader with a big word or make a reader go for a dictionary unless there’s no choice.

            believe it or not, I didn’t have to go to the dictionary for the word. I can see where others might have to. but I’m sticking to the word. I don’t normally use big words, or really unusual words, not my style, but this one fell right in and it works for me.

      Tom PPPPPPPPP,

      I would smoke a phatty, but I’m afraid that I am one of the rare ones that it does nothing for me. Nothing! Plus I don’t smoke. But thank you for the well wishes my friend. I appreciate it. 🙂

    Yikes! I’m a little afraid of what the next spell in the book might be. Your story made me think of Willow from the Buffy show.

  4. HI Jackie – I smiled with the witch’s ancestors. This was a great tale. I thought it was going to be another natural disaster power cut, but it was different and much more exciting for it. I’d love to read more about this witch 🙂
