Writers' Pantry #13: April, here we come!

"April is the cruelest month, breeding lilacs out of the dead land, mixing memory and desire, stirring dull roots with spring rain." — T.S Eliot.

Greetings everyone! Hope you are safe and well! This is Sanaa and I am back with another exciting Writers' Pantry this Sunday.

Here we are, in this changing canvass of global turmoil. Perhaps for the first time the entire world is under lock-down. Which makes April ever the more welcome as we plunge into Poem-a-day challenge. Lets take this as an opportunity to band together and make use of our time by doing what makes us happy. Eat healthy, catch up on sleep, live, love and laugh (lots of it) the days will fly by and before we know it, we will have eclipsed COVID-19.

Announcements and Reminders:

The topic for next Weekly Scribblings is "All The Small Things." There are times when we seem to notice the small things more. The tiny blessings we are grateful for, the little things whose absence hits us harder than we expected. Which is why Rommy would like us to create a new piece of poetry or prose that incorporates the idea of  "small things."

Rosemary delighted us with "Wild Fridays #12: Roving the Web," where she shares and discusses topics close to our hearts. Do scroll back and check it out in case you have missed it! This one is an absolute treat!

Remember, you have one entire week to participate in prompts now. Just keep in mind that some people may have moved on to their next project after a couple of days, so entries posted later might not receive many visitors.

For now, I invite you to share your entry as Poets and Storytellers United welcomes both poetry and prose (i.e. stories, essays, articles) feel free to link anything old or new and relish in the work of others. Also, if you opt to share prose then please keep it to 369 words or fewer.

And now, without further ado, let us dive into the Pantry! Looking forward to grabbing a cup of coffee and reading you all! See you on the trail! πŸ’

  3. Hello everyone.

    Thanks for hosting the pantry and giving us a space to gather.

    I haven't thought about NaPoWriMo, but maybe that would be just the thing to try right now.

  9. Greetings all,
    Being late today but this past couple of weeks have been frustrating and not because of lockdowns, pandemics, media or politicians. It has been a private challenge and I hope to come out of it soon.
    I need to catch up with all of your contributions - Cheers.
