Weekend Challenge: Book Quotes/Words

I am so sorry I'm late, everyone! I had everyone else stepping up at their turn without reminders, which is so fantastic while things are nuts at my end (thanks everyone!), and then I just about forget my own turn!

Anyway, now I am here at last, let's get on with things! As I'm a little bit on the hop, how about a book challenge! I haven't started reading them yet, but someone has just loaned me the Hugh Howey trilogy of Wool (3-564), Shift (5-565), and Dust (5-401) so ask for one of the three titles and a page number (from the numbers after each title in brackets above), and I will give you your choice of three words from that page or a quote.

Use the words or quote in a creation of at least 300 words by midnight Sunday your own time and I'll reward you by adding 100 words to one of my own (sadly untouched for some weeks) WIPs!

Come on down and create! 😊

Hey! I'll take a shot at #23 from 'Shift'!

Ok! As this is the end of a chapter and only has three and a half lines I'll go with a quote and forgo the words as it's a reasonable quote: He needed to be alone, didn't want anyone around him this time, didn't want sympathetic hands comforting him while he cried.


Good luck with it! And feel free to ask for another if that one isn't working for you!

Ah, that's sad and lovely. Thanks- it brings something to mind, for sure. Now to see if I can write it.
