100 Word Challenge – Storm – May 31, 2017

Tara’s Thin Spiral Notebook – prompt weekly

The prompt is: storm

The sky was darkening quickly. Annie scrambled to gather her things and get inside before the storm started.

As she leaned against a tree, a knife slashed into the tree, by her head. She started to run and headed towards the trees hoping to lose whoever he or she was.

As she stopped to rest another knife landed in the tree next to her. They were still there.

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.
