Write every day.
Live every day, so you have something to write.
Different story or the same with minor variation.
Life won’t let you decide all the time.
Write every day, if you can.
Laugh every day.
Be this being who lives for what it loves.
Write, sing, or play every day.
If there’s a will, there’s a way.
Enjoy every day.
I’ve entered a ten word story into Gotham Writers’ A Very Short Story Contest.
Each participant may submit a ten word story.
Consider opportunities like this between novels. They keep your skills sharp and diverse. Only a few words submitted to a publisher is still work submitted to a publisher.
Over run again
Clinging to a shadow that left for higher ground.
I hold a memory while I myself degrade.
Life falls as petals,
afterthoughts, pink and precious,
worth a smile
for winter’s claws.
TC180’s random writing prompts.
Love at first smell.
150 word max. Poems, fiction, or non-fiction.
If at least 10 people participate, the chosen winner gets a colorful Jpeg award image to put on their social media or blog. It will likely be cheesy.
Leave your entry in the comments or leave a link to it.
down about the dust
make the path
trying to find the sun.
I’ve only ever run.
Now a patch of ground
It holds a lake
where I can see my heart glow
in its reflection.
Before, I’ve seen only clouds,
I’ve seen only
a murky surface
oiled slick and swirling
How am I to believe in this glow?
A whole universe, waiting to grow.
How many made it this time around,
how many faces with you
versus those you search for in the rain.
Let the ball drop
Fluctuations of millions beginning,
stories spilling open
and we’re left counting names
faces in the room with us
to see who’s going round again.
