Writing Exercise Wednesday #21 + Result

My goal is to post a year's worth of exercises and then reevaluate if I'll continue them or not. The stat on blogs is that most don't make it past a year. I'll be a stat either way.

I've got some great writing exercises coming up. Fun in my opinion. But what's fun for one person may be difficult for another. I hope these exercises might change some of that. So let's start!  And I'm posting the result here and now.

WEW #21
Prompt: This is an exercise in description that may add something to your story. Take any specific words from your story or any words just to use as an exercise like I did below. Think of anything you relate to that word. Try opposites. Far fetched. Wherever the word takes you.  It may help to build a scene or convey a feeling or emotion or just describe something in a unique way. Write a few or many.
