All right, so today is going to be an imagination foray for all of you. I'm going to post a scene, and I want you all to visualize and comment what kind of a story you think the setting belongs in. Add your next sentence or paragraph, too, if you want to. Ready? Here goes:
The world was white-washed. Where barren trees had once cast their skeletal silhouettes into a grey sky, now they were adorned with budding leaves of snow. The drab streets, cracked beneath the weight of growling cars, had been transformed to white avenues a-purr with muffled motors.
Grey clouds had torn away to reveal an everlasting expanse of blue. Sunlight spilled out of the sky onto the snow, making sidewalks glitter. Depressed houses, huddled down for warmth, blinked open their shuttered eyes, and added their own icicle-laden sparkle to the world.
Inside me, though, snow still fell, and cold bit deep into my heart. Not even the clean scent of Christmas snow could kindle joy inside me.
If only I didn't know he was just a doorbell away. Maybe he would still be here.
Have fun with this! I can't wait to see what you all come up with.
