Character Sketch VII

The Beginning                                                                                                                                  She was born an extrovert. She sang, danced, and laughed the way common people breathed. She walked like a happy ending.

The End                                                                                                                                           She would not acquiesce to fate. Her lip split from his knuckles. His wing tips are imprinted in her ribs. There’s no sport left in the fight so he goes.

    I’m pretty sure I know who this involves, but I’ll let you tell—if you wish.

    Such people on the opposite ends of the spectrum of life should never meet . . . but, unfortunately, sometimes do.

    Even when—perhaps especially when—the content is “less than sunny,” you are a pleasure to read!

    Your readers can always count on you to tell the story, no matter how difficult the subject matter. Thank you for this!

    Remarking that “His wing tips are imprinted in her ribs” is bone cutting tight writing, seems a bit of cavalier comment after ready the whole of the thread. But….
