She made a grand entrance, as usual, causing quite the disturbance. Bob’s glasses fogged up, causing him to bump shoulders with the maître d’ as he rose to greet her. His wine glass soared through the air, spinning end over end as the crimson liquid showered down onto the patrons below. Finally, it hit the checkered tile floor in front of her, shattering into a million pieces.
Unfazed, she strutted her way across the debris and onto the stage…
“Good evening,” she said as the microphone reached her lips, “this one’s for you Bob.”
As I said in my last post, I’m working on “one thing a day,” so I thought I would try the Daily Spur’s word prompt: Disturbance. More and more I’ve been thinking about writing something—a novel, a screenplay, or maybe just a short story (with an actual ending!), but the fact of the matter is that writing is something I never do enough. So, I’m starting small.
I haven’t mentioned this here yet, but I’m currently taking a screenwriting class. What a strange mix… a screenwriting class and an addiction assessment and treatment class. Wow, that sounds weird. My first film will be about addiction? Perhaps!
Anyway, I also wanted to share my latest femme fatale. It’s my take on an illustration I stumbled on recently, and now that I’ve written the accompaniment, I sure wish that I had placed a microphone in her hand instead of the purse. That is another edit for another day!
I’m also learning to be one step ahead and I am pretty pleased at that. Normally I take most of the night to finish an image and by the time I sit down to share I’m exhausted. So… I’m sharing something I made last night—prior to my dragon—and so tonight I’ll be free to draw, paint, or photo edit until the wee hours of the night and then plop straight into bed.
That’s about all for now.
Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed something here!
