Words for Wednesday is a weekly writing prompt designed to get our creative juices flowing. A group takes a turn month about to provide the word prompts. Use the prompts to write a story, poem, song, whatever you like or just be inspired by the tone of the words to write your piece. There are no rules and anyone can join. This month the words are provided by River of Drifting Through Life (you can find her in my side bar).
This weeks words are:
exterior, madwoman, mountain lake, twitched, flicker, desk
prediction, approach, bacteria, vaults, place and white lilac.
Jason sat at his desk watching the flicker from the screen before him intently. "The data indicates the bacteria in Lake Elise (a remote mountain lake in BC) has risen to levels never previously recorded. My prediction is an epidemic of some sort across the inhabitants of the area, not to mention the fish and wildlife."
"Well," Bill replied thoughtfully, "I guess we're lucky the population is sparse in that place. The fact that 'white lilac' season is almost upon us is a problem though. It draws hundreds of tourists every year."
Jason gave the computer control knob a twitch to shut things down and reached for the light switch on the exterior office wall. "Come on. We'd better get up there."
"Best approach the area with caution." Bill advised. "There have been reports of a madwoman vaulting from the trees at unsuspecting walkers."
Jason just laughed. "No fear. That's my Mom. She's been drinking that lake water her whole life."
