Weekend Writing Prompt #72 : Shell



Lipstick, mascara, hairspray, her shell was complete. Her real self hidden. Protected.


Written for Sammi Cox’s Weekend Writing Prompt #72. No, it’s not the weekend, but I thought I’d sneak in and scribble an offering anyway. See here to join in the fun.

  1. Like the idea of make-up forming a shell. And you are, of course, right. So, does that make those who don’t wear make-up ‘brave souls, to ‘face’ the world unprotected ‘?


    1. Ha! I found facing the world unprotected much easier when I was younger – less to hide! But many times now, I just can’t be bothered to put make up on – no one’s looking at me anyway, so what does it matter? πŸ™‚
