Playing with shorts – not what that sounds like

I’ve been reading the posts Dean Wesley Smith did for his July challenge. The challenge was to write one short story a day for the entire month. {Not doing the challenge, just wanted to try playing with more shorts.}

I also played with his title generator to come up with one for me to work with. I had “Pirates” in my head (no idea why). So I wrote it down at the top of my page like he does. Then “cove creek” came to mind so I came up with, Pirates of Cove Creek.

No clue about anything, I started writing. I thought I would share what the beginning starts with. I really liked it. I think it’s deceiving us. Getting us all comfy and then blamo. Since I have no idea what it is about,  I don’t know where it will go any more than you.

The waves lapped gently against the wooden hull. It made a gentle swish swish sound. Similar to leaves swaying in the wind brushing against one another swish swish, swish swish.

Above Jenny Parker’s head, high high high up in the clouds, the sun shone reddish orange against her closed eyelids.

The waves continued their lullaby swish swish, swish swish. The sound lulled her into dreamland. It was a struggle to stay awake.
