Hello word artists and admirers! Did any of you make new year’s resolutions? How are they going? It can be hard to make them stick sometimes. That might be why the phrase “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks” is such a common one. Though I find that if you can find the right trick, and make it suitably enticing, even old dogs will pick them up.
So for this prompt, I’d like you to consider that phrase (“you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”) and express any thoughts you had on it in either poetry or prose form. You can choose to go with either fiction or non-fiction, but any prose submissions should be no longer than 369 words. Mr. Linky awaits your new words and will be open until 11 a.m. EST Friday. Happy writing!
