Word Prompt - Electricity


While I appreciate and enjoy the ways in which harnessed electricity makes our lives easier and more entertaining, I much prefer the wild exciting energy of raw electricity arcing across the sky during a thunderstorm. Here in the Midwest we have some amazingly beautiful lightning strikes and displays that out class the best fireworks show. And there's also that moment of waiting till the thunder comes, a brief pause and BOOM!

Don't you find, though, that the MOST exciting strikes are the ones where the light and the sound occur almost simultaneously, lol?

Yeah, that means it's close!

Hahaha, right? Nice job with the prompt, BTW.

I think one of the best things I ever wrote--not that I set an especially high standard, lol--was a two or three sentence response to a prompt given in a creative writing class that I had hesitated about and then decided to take.

I had previously made a conscious decision to give up "writing" as a personal avocation and then took this class in which we would be focusing, unbeknownst to me, on memoirs. And it opened up a whole new way of appreciating the craft and of understanding my own life experiences.

I think, too, that it was that class which eventually led to my interest and involvement in journaling.

But, yeah, good work, E...

Thanks sweets:) I've been having a hard time putting anything into words of late and this word prompt thing has sort of got me interested in writing for fun again. And encouragement is a big plus. Thanks again.

BTW glad you didn't give up writing, you have a knack for it.

And how you can FEEL it, right before it hits. The air gets charged and you can almost taste it...

Thunder storms are wonderful...unless they get too severe!

Love thunderstorms, but not high winds nor hail. In fact, we are having the most lovely storm right now which has brought some hard rain that we so badly needed.

That's wonderful!

Hail is no good, though. We've had it up to cricket ball size here, and jagged with it. Glad you didn't get any high winds or hail!
