reading with the seasons. And my reading list is never long enough, even on
days when a slightly hysterical voice in my head, howls, “When exactly are
we supposed to find the time to read all these books!?” I don’t listen to
that not-so-little voice (you shouldn’t either), there is always time for reading.
Really. I mean, who needs sleep?
With that thought in mind (not the one about not needing sleep, but the one about
reading), for today’s optional prompt, my dear poets and storytellers, I invite to
write poetry or prose which contains
the full title of a book you are reading or plan to read this
Do you have a December reading list? If so, do share it in the comments. Here is mine:
- Hogfather, by Terry Pratchett
- Krampus: The Yule Lore, by BROM
- What You Need to Be Warm, by Neil Gaiman
- Christmas and Other Horrors: An Anthology of Solstice Horror, edited by Ellen Datlow
- Dead List: The December Files, by Jesse Sprague
- The Stupidest Angel: A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror, by Christopher Moore
- Hiddensee: A Tale of the Once and Future Nutcracker,
by Gregory Maguire
Required: Post the response to your blog. Add
the direct link to that post to Mr. Linky. One post per person, 369
words maximum (excluding
title), for prose and for poetry.
Optional: You may share old or new pieces, in
poetry or prose, and you may write to the prompt or to a topic of your choosing.
Requested (not compulsory but strongly recommended):
Visit other writers and storytellers. Read their contributions. Share your
thoughts on their words.
for next week, our Rommy will invite us to write about a time when we
weren’t sure if we could (or wanted to) do something, but we ended up
doing it anyway.
