Writing Prompt

She was a quaint woman, solid-colored skirts hovering just above the ground. I saw a child approach her once, asking to play a card game. She pulled a deck out of her apron pocket and asked if he’d ever heard of rummy? Well, she said, gather all your coins. A woman as old as I doesn’t waste her time on penniless hands.


Writing Prompt: Write an extremely short, yet vivid, character description. Include at least one specific scene. I was aiming for 50 words in this one and went a little over. No matter your word count, edit your first draft to cut out as much as you possible.

less is more
