Start Writing Fiction – Exercise 6

Okay, so for exercise 7 I’ve been tasked with trying describe something familiar with one or two ordinary words that you wouldn’t normally use in that context so, hear goes.

Let me know what you think in comments.

Close by, it started with some minor swirls of colour, very quickly blending into a myriad of reds and greens and browns appearing as streaks to the naked eye. Further away, it was a different story as the sky moved slowly and the planes happily seam through the air as they made their way to their destination.

By now, the colours close by had become one with each other, part of a blurred smeary landscape. Occasionally, if I moved my head in line with this smear, for that split second, I could make out the detail of a tree or a fence.

Then, as quickly as it started, it began to slow. Colours burst out of the smear to show themselves again. Details appeared across the landscape and I started to make out the people on the platform, windswept by the train I was on as it pulled into the station

  1. Hi 🙂
    I just saw that you followed by blog a few weeks ago. Did you post your short story here as well? I can’t seem to find it.

    • Hey Tasneem,

      I found your blog a little while ago through a link on another blog I follow. I liked your posts so thought I would follow.

      I hope that’s ok. I tend to write fiction on my blog. I have written the odd update about myself but not very often.

      Kindest Regards,
