I have enjoyed following Tara at Thin Spiral Notebook for several years.
She is a writer of fiction, an artist, photographer and so much more.
She is an inspiration! And I particularly like her 100 Word Challenge.

As Tara says, 100 words no more and no less. If you want to play along, this week’s challenge is Fort and here’s my effort.

Quarantine and self-isolation are words that chill me.  I am one of those people who are out and about most days. The thought of being confined to the house scares me.

For a short six months when I wasn’t allowed to drive following my misadventure, I was dependent on others coming to visit or take me places.

And now each time I read the news or a blog post, these words jump out at me.

In the event we have to commit to this here, I shall feel as if I am in a fort, cut off from the world.
