Cheers and laughter erupted from the crowd. The sun was shining. Friends stood together as families took pictures. A bumblebee buzzing in the distance. Blue eyes met hers. The world paused. A question left hanging in the air. Before she could walk towards him, the world started turning once more. A flood of color and sound returned, startling her. A parting look before walking to their respective families. A bumblebee buzzing in the distance.
I decided to try something different with my writing today, but try to keep it true to what I typically write about. I like to ramble and it translates into my writing. For the past couple of years, I have been writing long stories, filled with description. Recently, I read a story that was less than 500 words and it really hit me. There was intensity, chaos, and emotion. I started to see the impact a short story/drabble can have and I want to integrate some of that into my writing.
What did you think of my first attempt? Any feedback would be welcome!
