So Quiet

It’s quiet here, at the place where I go to write. The outer room was dark when I came in with my key, and I haven’t seen another person yet. Am I the only one here? People must be away, having escaped the city for better, cooler places this long holiday weekend. Still, I take my usual desk, people or no people, and set up as always. Or as I used to. It’s been a long time since I wrote simply for pleasure. I’ve opened up a blank document, typed the title at the top of the page. All I have so far is a title. Then a sentence. A sentence-in-progress, I should say, a temporary sentence.

Oh, here comes another writer. I’m alone no longer. It’s better that way, really. I like to hear the distant typing.

One response to “So Quiet”

  1. Yay! It’s very inspiring to imagine you in that quiet room with the sound of distant typing. Have fun and good luck. Best, BL
