poets and storytellers. I hope Wednesday is being good to you. I was just cleared to get back on my trampoline, do calisthenics, and strength training,
so I guess my Wednesday is starting great (and promises to end with a significant amount of
and missed muscular soreness). I’ve missed regular exercise almost
as much as I’ve missed regular (and
deliciously long) writing sessions. What have you missed?
prompt wasn’t inspired by things I’ve missed, but by words I love. If you have
read me for a while, you probably already noticed my overuse of words like
weird and peculiar and strange. I am not even exactly sure why I like those
words so much; perhaps it’s because I’m a bit weird, and a tad peculiar, and a
lot strange. Something for me to think about… someday… maybe…
this moment, for our 73rd Weekly Scribblings, I just wish to invite
you to write poetry or prose which includes one (or all three) 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.
This prompt will stay open for a week. One link per participant, please. If you go for prose, the word count should be 369 words or fewer. Also, previously written pieces (that have been meaningfully rewritten) are welcomed. Let us delight in words.
