Yearning - A to Z Blog Hop

{source}

 My theme is 10x10.
A maximum of ten sentences, a minimum of 100 words.

It seemed such a perfect day until she found the letter at the very bottom of her mother's knitting basket. Her mom had insisted she take it to college with her and she'd kept it all these years, the one connection to her family.
To read the full story, please check out the Amazon e-book
"A to Z in 10 x 10".
It's only .99!

 


Thank you to Lynne for her starter prompt. [prompt in italics]

  4. I was drawn in straight-away. I don't know how you did that but I really care about this girl. Will you be writing these ideas up into full stories or are they from your published work?

  7. Thanks, Donna. Some of these will eventually get fleshed out to at least a short story. Just need more hours in the day. LOL!

  8. Hi Rosalind, thank for visiting and commenting. Each of these were written off the cuff, using the word and photo inspiration. I may be working some into full stories but need to get back to my romance novel WIP first. Now if there were more hours in the day....lol!

  10. You catch us immediately and draw us in each time. Is there really only one left. Glad I was able to provide the writing prompt Donna. It's been wonderful getting to know you a little during AtoZ's. xx

  12. My original thoughts for Yearning were quite different than the direction of your prompt. I really had fun writing this one...and it makes even ME want to know more. LOL!

    Now we get to follow each other's blogs after the challenge. Making new writing friends has been the bonus of this challenge!!

  15. So much sorrow in that little story. Good beginning for a much longer piece I think!

  16. I,too, think this would be a wonderful prologue for a longer story - get to it, Donna!!! ;-)

    It had such a sense of back-story that demands to be unpacked and explored.

    (Of course, for me, the icing on the cake is getting a 'knitting' reference in there! ;-p)
