January 13, 2020

There were two options for the prompt at today’s meeting.

  • Prompt #1: Excerpt from the book The Golem And The Jinni, by Helene Wecker.
    Consider the attention to detail in the description of this scene.

The rain transformed the city. It washed the filth from the sidewalks and reflected the gas lamps in puddles of clear water. It drummed on the taut awnings, and cascaded from gutters and and overhangs into the near-empty streets. Midnight had long since come and gone, and even those with nowhere to go had taken shelter, in basement dives and the dark corners of tenement hallways.

  • Prompt #2:  Sunrise / Sunset
