Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! Over the holidays my parents gave my husband and I one of those gadgets that track your steps among other things. I had only been half-heartedly monitoring my daily steps for a while, but I had a couple of periods of high slugdom during the last couple of months, and the weather is getting nicer. So I’m trying to be more deliberate about hitting the 10,000 step mark.
You’d think having a dog makes this easier, but my pupper lives life in slug mode. I often find myself having to take extra walks after he’s done walking (and taking twice as many steps in half the time). But the really nice thing is that my husband, who has been very good about walking all this time, is often willing to be my walking buddy when I need it. Anybody else making more of an effort to move more?
Looking forward to the week ahead, when Magaly will invite us to write poetry or prose which includes one (or all 3) of the following words: unusual, uncommon, uncanny. You are welcomed to choose your own topic, genre, form… But your contribution must include at least one of the words.
Now it’s time to show how you’ve flexed your writing muscles this week and share your pieces. I’m taking new and old pieces, poetry and prose, fiction and non fiction. One piece per person and please keep your prose pieces to 369 words or fewer.
