Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! Happy Summer Solstice to those of us in the northern hemisphere and Happy Winter Solstice to all the folks down under. I’m doing my best to focus on the joyful aspects of this day (I’ve always been fond of the solstices and equinoxes) and will be spending as much time outside as I can.
I’ll also be celebrating a very big to me milestone. The rough draft of the novel I’m working on is done. LOL, when I say rough draft, I mean rough. I’ve got a bunch of notes that I need to refine, work through, and incorporate. I’ve got scenes that are more like quick verbal sketches of actions and mood. But all the pieces are there. Are you celebrating any little victories in your life?
For next Wednesday, Magaly would like us to write poetry or prose inspired by the idea of choosing between what is right and what seems easy.
On to celebrating the written word! Hit me with your word gems, poetry or prose, fiction or non-fiction, old or new. Please be sure to keep all prose offerings to 369 words or fewer and one entry per person.
