Bleeding Snippets

Post by Jim on Sat Aug 13, 2016 9:13 am

Jan said I'm kinda between moms style of writing and hers. Mom might write, "she went to the barn."

Jan said I'd probably go into more detail, mentioning the color, the smell...a more descriptive way to get there.
Maybe like this: "she meandered down the dirt path, the smell of fresh mown hay in the air, headed for the old red barn whose silo had crumbled into a pile of rubble 15 years ago."

But we all know
if Jan was writing it, the sentence would become so extravagantly beautiful as to turn into an award winning book...

I really don't want to take a writing class, nor do I want to even try to write a short story. Im just happy to be writing little snippets full of adjectives and descriptive verbs and adverbs. And to inject the pure joy of what I get out of doing it....

"The car bled rust."
"The woman bled snippets"
