Back with another Drabble!
I believe I’m getting the hang of the rhythm.
The difficult part–word usage–is… coming.
Much like any story, writers want readers to be able to empathize with the protagonist (good or bad), and visualize and feel the scene.
Tall order for a hundred words but it is fun!
How did I do?
C H A N G E S – Drabble #2
Kerri Kennedy sat alone on the swing watching her four former friends play across the schoolyard.
They treated Kerri as though she’d changed.
The accident last winter took her father and left Kerri with mangled legs.
She couldn’t stand up straight and walked with a limp, but she was still the girl who liked pineapple on her pizza.
She wasn’t the one who changed.
A soccer ball bounced against Kerri’s foot. She kicked it back to the girl running toward her.
“Thanks. Wanna play with us?”
“I can’t. My leg.”
“Sure, you can.”
Surprised, Kerri smiled at her new friend.
