Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! I hope you are all doing well this morning. In an attempt to get in as much outside fun as I can before the weather gets too bitter, I went on a ghost walk held in my town! I expected a couple of American Revolution stories (lots of battles happened all around the area where I live), but there were plenty of stories from other eras of history, some of them quite chilling! Have you ever been on a ghost walk?
For this upcoming Weekly Scribblings, Rosemary will ask us to try Realism – which ‘attempts to represent subject matter truthfully, without artificiality.’ It tends to focus on ‘the depiction of ordinary, everyday subjects’ and ‘attempts to represent familiar things as they are’. She invites us to see if we can describe something realistically, in a way that indicates more than what is actually said.
On to the pantry! I’m taking both poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction, old and new pieces. Just be sure to keep all prose to 369 words or fewer and one entry per person please.
