Weekend Writing Prompt #53 – Quiescent


His brain had been quiescent for most of his life. Never had an original thought passed through it.

So it came as a surprise when he published a novel that shook up the literary world.

Praised was lavished upon him, book readings were sold out, and he became a household name.

But how we wondered did he go from quiescent to active?

The secret lay within his dormant mind. It awoke one day and activated its sleeping self.

Before it knew it, an awakening had occurred, and words flowed forth.

One novel was followed by a next. People hung on every word.

He was quiescent no longer. (107 words)
