The Silver Rose

Lila searched for Bruce. He wasn’t in the classroom. She didn’t see him near the buses. She took a quick glance in the lunchroom and gym. No Bruce.

Coming back from the football field the only other place she could think to look was the library. But why ever would athletic, never-reads-a-book Bruce be in the library?

Different Places to Write

Day 28 of 30 Days Challenge

Choose a Place to Write

Most writers have a designated place to write, an office, a corner of the kitchen table, where ever they can find a spot.
