Hey guys! So although I'm cutting it a bit close, today is Wednesday and that means my fourth attempt at WoW (and no, I don't mean the interactive computer game...). If you guys haven't seen my previous posts for this project, or just haven't had a chance to check it out, you should jump right on over to InkPaperPen to check it out. Go ahead, I'll wait here. :)
This week's prompt was a single phrase: "The clock winked". Our assignment was to take this sentence, and use it to write whatever came to mind over the course of five minutes. I'll be honest: I spent the first two minutes like a fish out of water, with no idea what to write, as though the art were a totally new form to me. I'm not entirely happy with how it came out, but I think I'm proud of the general premise of it.
What do you guys think? Let me know in the comment box, please!
The clock winked.
Mona was convinced that it had, despite being well aware that her eyes were playing plenty of tricks on her these days, and what was to stop this from being one of them. But it had winked at her. In a mocking sort of way too, as though it knew it had full power over her, and intended to use that for all it was worth.
You’re going to be here forever, the clock seemed to say to her. I control time. I can stay right here for hours if I like, and there’s really nothing you can do about it.
But honestly, it seemed as though it had been days already just since she'd sat down on the kitchen chair which, according to the clock, had been five minutes ago. Something so small as a second seemed to pass over the course of days for her now. And days could pass as an eternity. She had no idea as to how she was going to live the rest of her life.
There’d been a time though, when time seemed to go so fast. When they knew they had so little of it, and that realization only seemed to result in their having less of it, no matter what they did to make sure they spent every moment being happy together. What had they done wrong? Why, after all they’d done to appreciate the time they had, did he have to be taken away in what seemed like the blink of an eye? Or rather, the wink of a clock.
How about you, friends? Do you want to give WoW a try? Link up at InkPaperPen so we can all check it out!!
