Hoardings

Tuesday, June 20, 2017. Daily Brit Wit.

Hoardings: 

Noun 

A billboard; displays large adverts. 

“She ambles round in downtown London foot traffic, peers inside shop windows, and simply people watches. On days like today, the crowd usually pricks at her subconscious and all she wants is to go home: too much noise between belligerent car horns and chatty friends, ginormous clumps of acquaintances and strangers alike lulling about. 

She yearns for their company, however. She nods to several passersby who meet her gaze. Her gait doesn’t slow or quicken, even when her heart rate elevates. 

She eyes several hoardings down the block and decides window shopping in a new area may do her well. Also, she is in need of her mid-morning cuppa.”

    1. I’m pleased to hear this!! Sometimes I like to switch up what types of words I use, whether it’s something simple like “small” or “gigantic,” especially as I notice repetition in my writing. My friends usually say I’m overthinking. πŸ™‚
