I will celebrate the first by taking pictures of random strangers reading. All right, that might be a terrible idea… So, I will just probably take a reading selfie or stalk my Piano Man and the not-so-Little Princess until I can catch them reading. The latter, I shall celebrate by rereading some of my favorite short story collections of all times: M Is for Magic by Neil Gaiman, The Decapitated Chicken and Other Stories by Horacio Quiroga, The Language of Thorns by Leigh Bardugo, and a new collection I’ve yet to choose.
Do you have a favorite short story
collection? If yes, would you care to share a title and bit about why you love
it? Maybe, your favorite could become mine too.📚😊
Share your poetry or your prose. Let your contribution
be old or new, fiction or nonfiction, short or longish (if you choose prose, then your word count should
be 369 words or fewer). One link per
participant, please. The prompt will remain open for a week. Let us write,
share, and get caught reading in May!
- for our
next Weekly Scribblings, our dear Rosemary would like you “to think about places
which are special to you for any reason, and bring them to life for us in
whatever way you choose, in poetry or prose.”
