Hello, word artists and admirers! Rommy here and I'm swapping in for Magaly this week. She tells me the topic is October, which suits me just fine. Although October has taken on some complicated connotations for me (this is the month I lost my first corgi, a close friend to ALS, and my father-in-law) it's always been a month of striking beauty and joy too (the birth of Darling Eldest and my husband's birthday too). Like one of my favorite literary characters, I adore this month and try to spend as much time as I can outside to get better acquainted with its beauty.
So yes, this week's optional prompt is to be like Anne and take inspiration from the month of October. Poetry and prose are welcome, as are fiction and non-fiction. Just keep your posts to 369 words or fewer and one entry per person, please.
Next week, Magaly will be back, asking you to be inspired by one (or more) of the four classical elements: earth, air, fire, and water.
