Out of Darkness

Here's a chance to practice writing skills, my faithful readers, by joining me in posting a story with a picture for Wednesday Wit and Wisdom.  The challenge is to post a picture on your blog, then write a short story or a poem about the picture as a writing exercise. When your blog us ready, link up for others to read. Feel free to also add your picture and story to another link of your choice. The link up is on my WWW page here. This is #47!

Announcing my new book, Out of Darkness to Accepted Love, is published, I thought I'd share an excerpt from the story. You can purchase the book online at Amazon. The book is available, but the download isn't ready as of this writing.

If you have read my first book, Annie's Love, this book is a backstory of the two main characters in the book, Jeff and Carol. In this short excerpt, Carol is waking up from a coma:

Carol struggled against the darkness that enveloped her. I have to wake up! She could hear Lisa’s voice, and she wanted to talk to her. What had happened to her? Was she in the apartment? Like a bad movie, brief memories of a struggle raced through her mind. She felt frightened and alone. Slowly, Carol opened her eyes and saw the machine blinking beside her. Her vision was blurred, but she could make out the white walls around her and the blue picture. Am I in a hospital? She blinked her eyes trying to get past the blur. Finally, she could make out Lisa’s face. Her mouth would not open.

So now it's your turn. Find a picture, write a story, post your blog, and come back here to link in. This is a writing exercise.
