Taking part in this weekly challenge has really encouraged me to write more. I have started to write a book and am up to Chapter 4. This week’s prompt fits beautifully with the part of the story I am currently writing. So….here for the first time, a snippet from my first book!
The alarm went off and for a moment Sarah lost her bearings. The sounds were different – a clock ticked loudly somewhere in the house, someone clattered in a distant kitchen, unusual birdsong came through the window. It smelled unlike grandmother’s house. The sheets felt crisper and the quilt weighed heavily and warmly against her. She lay there for some time taking in these sights, sounds and smells, filling her senses with them and processing the information slowly and meticulously. Then a mist of concern rolled into her mind as she thought of Daniel. She felt it as an icy chill which made her shudder.
