100 Word Challenge: Quiet

100 Word Challenge: Quiet

I crave quiet. Noise, muted or not annoys me. The constant ringing of my dad’s phone or mine (damn telemarketers). Door slamming, the noise of someone walking overhead, the cat meowing and the dog barking. I recently found out that Bipolar Disorder can cause annoyance with noise. Even sounds others find soothing, I find enraging. Yes, noise makes me angry, enraged at times.

I wish I could live in a shady spot on the ocean somewhere and watch as well as listen to waves coming in. The one noise I find soothing is the sound of waves coming on shore.

Exactly 100 words.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

  1. it must be exciting living with a 🐱, no? 😀


  2. I liked this! I’m bipolar too. I read your About page, and I’m glad I found your blog! We have a lot in common (a lot of differences too, but aren’t those great?).

    I too enjoy going to the beach where crashing waves are a noise I welcome. It can be so loud it drowns out all other sound, but is calming rather than alarming.
