100 Words – Storm

*This site is monetized. Any links in this post are likely to be affiliates.

I haven’t done much writing this week after a sort of boom last week. Not for lack of inspiration, but instead a lack of energy.  I’m trying to push through and write despite the lacking energy.  So, back to the challenges…

The prompt word for the 100 Word challenge was Storm.  I had several flashes of inspiration, from weathering the storm to a storm front to a total blank on further ideas. When I sat down to write this morning what finally hit was the main character in the story I’m world building for.  This book is tentatively called “The Tribe” (I know for a fact it’s not a final title, it’s just to tide me over until I get a better one).

The main characters name is Nirvelli.  She’s been through a lot, and this short 100 words is inspired by her and the start of the trials of her life.

One of these days the 100 words will inspire something a little more light-hearted…maybe.


Around her everyone went about their business.  To them nothing had changed, not even her.

They didn’t know the depth of evil roiling in her soul.  The storming emotions threatening to erupt.

It would come out in bursts and fits, put off as teen rebellion.

They didn’t know the truth of her pain.

They would never know.

Because evil begets evil. She caused this, she had to have. It was her fault. The Spirits punished her for sins yet to be made. It was karma. She was marked for life.

Her soul already dead.

Opening her to a new Hell.

    I really like this piece. and I totally get the lack of ‘light-heartedness’. Every week I tell myself that I’ll write something upbeat. Ah well. Maybe next week! ;)

    Thanks, AuroraLee. Despite the darkness of the piece I’m happy with it. Then again, most everything that has to do with this character makes me happy :D

    LOL. I think I’ve managed to once or twice write something light hearted for the 100 words. I’m sure I will again…someday. Maybe.
