If you are new to my blog, it's Book Blurb Friday! Lisa Ricard Claro, from Writing in the Buff, posts a picture meant to serve as a fictional book cover. It's your job to write a blurb about the book in 150 words or less to entice a prospective reader.
I had several directions to go with this week's picture, but unfortunately my mind had a hard time picking just one. I finally settled decided to focus on the unpredictability of nature, and I like what I came up with (I hope you do too.) Here is this week's photo and my story:
But sometimes when people become too comfortable, they fail to see warning signs, to listen to that inner voice saying something isn’t right-they take risks.
Cassie and Sam would become this comfortable. After several fires in the San Bernardino Mountains, and a mudslide advisory, the couple continued plans for a hike. But when that predicted mudslide does come, it washes the couple and their vehicle down the mountainside, and it will take everything they have to make it out alive. (A little windy tonight at 146 words...)
What about you? Do you see a story when you look at pictures? Just post an entry and join us at Lisa's! I hope to see you there.
