3 Word Wednesday or you're intrigued by the idea, make sure you stop by and sign up. There's always a ton of people and lots of really interesting writing (both fiction and non).
I do have to admit that the last time I took part in 3WW, it was much easier. I had just come home from an amazing vacation, and I think any words would have worked to remind me of my trip. This time, it's a bit harder, but I'll try to do my best.
She had never been a charming girl. Even in kindergarten, the age where any child can coax a smile out of an adult, she had been the sullen child in a corner. The one that never smiled, played games that made no sense to an outside observer. No one ever asked the rules.
What some people took for rudeness was really only a solitary nature. Content with the feast of her imagination, she needed no others.

And then the complexity of her actions made others who were more easy to understand seem bland, stale.
Really just a short character sketch. I like the feel of it though. I can tell that I've been reading Dashiell Hammett, it sounds like a combination of a Sam Spade novel with an edge of Thin Man to it.
She doesn't have a name yet, or much surrounding her, but I can see her starting to take shape in my mind.
Now to only find something for her to do!
