Last (HOT) Friday in August! So it is Book Blurb day and 150 words to use. For complete rules see Lisa's blog at:http://www.writinginthebuff.net. She gave us an interesting picture this week for our writing prompt. See below:
Geisel never once thought about being a nun. Too much obedience required, even though she was a compliant girl, a submissive woman. Now she paused midlife with everything she once knew gone- through death, abandonment, or change. She passed the convent and wondered how those women were doing inside? Was their marriage to Jesus more lasting; was God more reliable than beings she knew?
She’d been a dutiful daughter, a biddable wife, and a devoted mother. She had done it all. Now she wondered why? She ended up alone and empty anyway.
She passed Holy Name every morning on her way to work. Then one afternoon, without realizing she’d made the turn, Geisel parked beneath bowing archways. She turned off the ignition switch and stepped across the chat.
What would Geisel Channing find inside of this stone building? Comfort? Guidance? Love maybe? Answers would surprise this open-minded, searching woman.
