Today’s installment

Sierra started outside after the tornado, relieved to learn that there hadn’t been any widespread carnage as a result of the storm.  As she walked out to check the damage she noticed Big John staring at the side of her car.

“You better come and look at this,” he grimaced as if in pain.   She wasn’t sure if something was really wrong with her car or if he was just being a jerk.

Keeping her distance from John she walked around the car.  Much to her dismay she saw a large piece of glass, a piece of debris from the entry-way, had punctured her tire.

(Note:  I had to make this weeks words fit in with my story for National Novel Writing Month because my brain isn’t flexible enough to start an entirely new story today.  Website for National Novel Writing Month is   http://www.nanowrimo.org/en/about/hownanoworks     )

Three words:   carnage, jerk and puncture

  5. I’ve done it twice before, and made the goal both times. It’s going unusually well this time, but it’s a book I’ve had in mind for a long time.

  6. It could be a lot worse than a punctured tire.

    You’re doing NaNo? So am I!

    Great use of three words. Please read my attempt.

  7. Those storms can be terrible. The glass could have caused much more damage.

  8. it’s an excellent part for your novel.

  9. Good description. Hows Nano going for you? I’m trying it for the first time this year. 🙂
