Greetings, my dearest poets and
storytellers, and welcome to another Friday Writings session. I hope your
weekend starts well and keeps getting better. Since, I have spent the last few
weeks with physiotherapists, orthopedists, neurologists (and an awesome dentist) discussing pain, it was only
fitting that when I thought about a topic for today, un-dear Pain came to mind.
So, if your muse wishes for some inspiration, I invite her (and you too) to write poetry or prose that
explores psychological or physical pain.
The dictionary defines pain as
a physical suffering or distress, as due to injury, illness, etc.
a distressing sensation in a particular part of the body.
a mental or emotional suffering or torment.
I would tell you how I define
pain, but I doubt this platform would allow that amount of profanity without shutting
us down. So, I will leave it to your imagination; or not, since this is just a
suggestion. If you rather stay away from the pain monster, feel free to write
about a topic of your own choosing.
Let your contributions be new or old, short or longish (if going for prose, the word count should be 369 words or fewer). One link per participant, please. Remember to take a minute or 3 to visit other writers, and let them know what their words say to your brain.
our next Friday Scribblings, our
Rommy would like us to write poetry or prose from the point of view of a secondary
character in a story (book, movie, TV show…).
