Teaser: A Preview of Cora’s Journey–My WIP

June 24, 2013

For a change of pace, I thought I would share some of my own writing, specifically, the opening scene from one of my works in progress. It was originally my 2008 NaNoWriMo project, but I am rewriting it in a different direction. It will be interesting to see how it unfolds!

Cora’s Journey


She stood at the shore of the lake watching the sun set as she had countless evenings before. Tonight was the last time she would stand here, and her eyes misted with memories. The breeze ruffled her silver hair as she pulled her blue wool sweater tighter around her. Ripples on the lake lapped at her feet in one last goodbye while the mourning dove’s somber cries echoed the melancholy she felt. As the last rays of light disappeared from the water, she turned and shuffled back into the cabin. She stepped up to the porch, and touched the railing as if it still held the warmth of her husband’s grip. Keeping her gnarled hand on the rail, she turned one more time and gazed across the lake where the last glow of daylight slipped over the horizon. Once inside, she sat in her old rocker and covered herself with her favorite afghan. Moments later, she was asleep.
