– a 55-er
I located the draft and began reading looking for clues.
What pushed her over the edge? Abused and misused all her life, when had she revolted, locking the world out only to be locked away herself? She was now unreachable in her haze of self-deluding serenity.
I was no expert, but recognized a great novel-in-the-making.
Prompt words for 3WW CCLXVII : serenity, draft, locate
There are so many reasons why someone goes daft
a feeling of being thrown into the rushing water without a raft
and to make a suggestion of that in 55 words is a craft
and proved it, you have with ‘The Draft’.
Thanks Govind 🙂

Very clever use of the words.
Thank you and welcome to Shail’s Nest 🙂
It is a deligth to read work of such brevity and to discover the complex story hidden in such few words. Great work.
Thank you Oldegg 🙂
