Writers' Pantry #57: Infinite Variety

 

Hello dear wordsmiths. Happy Valentine’s Day! 

I’m sure we may expect a few pieces on love and romance, on this of all days. 

However, this is Sunday, when our Writers’ Pantry is always a rich feast of varied offerings. Therefore we invite you to contribute any piece of your writing you wish, on any topic, in any form. It can be poetry or story, fiction or non-fiction, new or old.

Reminders: Link to your specific blog post using Mister Linky below; one link per person. Prose pieces to be a maximum of 369 words (excluding title). The link will stay open a week. Please make time to read a few others too and leave comments. We all grow and blossom with encouragement.

Advance notice: On Wednesday, our Magaly will invite us to scribble new prose or poetry inspired by one (or all 3) of the following lines (which are blackout poems, created by her): 1. Be an uncrushed flower. 2 . Burst into constellations of dance. 3. Love can be a monster, or not. Feel free to use the exact words, or not—the choice is always yours.

You are all my Valentines, always giving me such a lot to love. "[Time] cannot wither nor custom stale [thy] infinite variety."

  1. Happy Valentines Day Rosemary!
    Still suffering writers block, I have posted my grandsons (Jamie) first ever poem, which I think is spectacularly good. Well done Jamie!

    1. You're welcome. It's nice to host on a sweet occasion like Valentine's Day (and have an excuse to go a wee bit sentimental).

  5. I hope everyone is having a great Valentine's Day. I'm still fighting February doldrums. Can anyone who has Blogger tell me how to convince the program not to double-space everything I enter??? I'm sure a magic button is hidden somewhere in Settings, but I've yet to find it!

    1. Yes, that is one of its more irritating new features, isn't it? By trial and error, I have found that if you press the capital T with a \ through it, you can afterwards space things how you want. But that button is no longer immediately visible at top of 'Compose' view; it has to be found under 'More' at far right.

    1. DownUnder here, we are already into Monday. But I did have a happy Valentine's Day, with women friends wishing me well in place of the lovers who are no more. And I binged-watched Season 1 of Firefly Lane Girls, and then read the book (finished it this morning) – a great celebration of lifelong friendship between women.
