A slow rain fell, forming an intricate pattern of diamond clusters on the window. I studied each one as they trickled down the pane. Suddenly, a clap of thunder shook the house down to the foundation. The diamonds raced for cover and vanished forever. #MuseMon #CleanWip— John Wilde (@WriterJohnWilde) October 21, 2019

No creature should have to be treated this way.
So onward he walks through the grassy terrain,
winding his way through the wind and the rain.#CleanWIP #AmWriting #KidLit #PictureBook #STEM #OwnVoices #Anxiety #OCD #MoeArmadillo pic.twitter.com/XEOpXgUV5n
#CleanWIP We’re in for a bad storm. They can slip upon you before you know it,” Clint warned. “We’re overdue for a rain, but I don’t want to get caught in the middle of a lightning storm. We’d better head back before it hits.”— Laurean Brooks (@Laurean2) October 21, 2019
It was hopeless, and Levi knew it. But he was running anyway. His heart thudded in his ears. His steps pounded on the wet pavement. His lungs screamed for relief. The misting rain flew into his face like tiny cold needles, obscuring his vision. #CleanWIP— Jessica Marie Holt — Author (@Jessica06311722) October 21, 2019
“A man climbed three stories to Halavant’s window, picked the lock, and decided to practice knife fighting with a sleeping cripple. What he didn’t expect was a quick-witted warrior. Halavant is an astute study in the art of Lausatök.” – King’s Shadow, #cleanWIP— ML Farb (@FarbMl) October 21, 2019

“I’m glad it hasn’t rained lately, my lady.” Oleta grabbed the side with whitened knuckles when the cart jolted over a rut. “Else the roads would be muddy, and that would be even worse.”
Misty rain turned to larger droplets and fell from Brandon’s hairline onto his face. Ava resisted the urge to smooth it away. To erase whatever was driving him toward a place he didn’t belong. A place where nobody belonged. #CleanWip— Irene Onorato (@IreneOnorato) October 21, 2019
While it’s true that some things smell better than others do, it’s nice to be able to smell a distant rain. It’s also nice to enjoy the smell of frangipani without a burning cigarette or an ashtray full of butts nearby. I shudder when I think of all the butts I used to smell. ~ Earl Chinnici (from Maybe You Should Move Those Away From You)
