Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! I have been alternating between periods of hyper-busy activity and periods of waiting where my current work-in-progress is concerned. Writing a novel is a multi-stage process and, for me at least, it is helpful to give my brain some time off between working on it. I find that I can catch errors and inconsistencies much better that way. I am nearing the end of another big editing stage, and the quiet part may last a little longer this time while I wait for feedback.
I’ve promised myself a celebration for when I get to that point. (I’m still figuring out what form that might take…any suggestions?) I also know that there are plenty of other words and worlds to explore inside me. So while I might not be actively working on that novel, there’s still plenty more writing I’m interested in tackling.
But right now, I’m ready to open the floor to your writings. I’m taking poetry and prose, old and new pieces, fiction and non-fiction. Please keep prose to 369 words or fewer and one post per person. For those of you who would like a prompt to work with, may I suggest writing about what comes to mind after reading the phrase “feast or famine”.
Next week, Rosemary will ask us to please write about color or the absence of color.
