Saturday Mix – Lorraine

Lorraine is the challenger for this week’s Saturday Mix. She has offered three possibilities to stir up our writing egos. I was most drawn to the 25-word challenge based on the picture. But you may enjoy the other two as well. So if you like writing and want to stretch yourself a little, take a look at the details of the challenge here.

My story is below the picture.

FROM THE CELLAR

A twelve-year-old, I gaped at the twister roaring toward us, tossing houses and livestock like matchsticks. From the cellar, I watched my world change forever.

    • I’ve never been in one myself — thank God — but my grandparents and an uncle were in one that’s still talked about in history books because of its destructiveness. They were in a ditch beside their car and watched as a house with a woman inside was literally picked up and carried away.
      Thanks for reading and commenting.
