How do you feel about quotes and adages that are a dance between silliness, humor, and truth-sprinkled sarcasm? I just love them. I pin them to my mental cork board and chant them to myself in the same way some people do affirmations. I enjoy the grins they bring to my heart. And yes, the ones about writing and reading are usually my favorite kinds. What about you, my dearest poets and storytellers, do you have a favorite sort of quote?
Announcements and Reminders:
- for our next Weekly Scribblings, Rommy asks us to consider the word foundation and use that to build up our poetry or prose. We can use any of these definitions.
- in her latest Wild Fridays, our Rosemary shared “My Dog”, a poem by Jack Davis. The piece is a brewer of smiles (well, it is for me). If you’ve yet to read it, I suggest you give it a go. Also, the feature ends with a wee note that changes the shape of our team.
Now, the Pantry is open! We want new or old prose or poetry, short or long(ish) written yumminess, heart ripping or soul lifting thoughts; the Pantry wants words. Choosing to share prose? Then please let the count be 369 words or fewer. One entry per participant. Add your contribution to Mr. Linky. As usual, the Pantry will stay open for a week. After sharing your link, do visit others and share your feels about their own sharings.
This is one of my favorite quotes about writing and editing and such:
