642 – The Silence

Monday Inspiration

BACK TO NORMALITY! 😀

As amazing and wonderful as the last two weeks have been – a HUGE thank you to everyone who’s shouted my book’s title from the rooftops! – I’m ready for a routine to return to Cookie Break. I’m sure after two weeks of nothing but shameless book promotion and reblogs, you are ready for it, too! ^^

I feel like I’ve been doing this a lot in the previous prompts, but once again I’ve used one to explore an idea I’ve had recently. It took a different direction from what I had expected, and I might have to play around with this a little more…

But onwards to the prompt! As always, if it speaks to you feel free to borrow it. I only ask that you link back here if you do so I can read your interpretation 🙂

Happy writing!

What is the sound of silence, and when did you last hear it? What was missing?

The doors opened first, and they brought the silence. The fear. The magic.

I was in town when our door opened, and I caught a brief glimpse of what was waiting on the other side. I’ll never forget the horror, no matter how much I want to. It was surreal – magical in a dark, twisted sense – and viciously deadly.

If you imagine someone’s front door opening, you have the wrong idea. Instead, picture this: One empty arch in every capital in this world. They’ve been here forever and never did anything, until Silent Day. Portals opened within the arches, and for the eternity only a few uncertain seconds can bring all sound was sucked from this world. Everything darkened.

I thought it would never be light again.

And in those eternal few seconds, magic poured over the people like a deadly virus.

      It really is. I had a lot of fun during release week and the week before that, but I can’t tell you how happy I am to have my routine back 🙂 A lot has happened since the last progress update, too, so I’ve got much to report this Friday 😉
