It’s November (Saturday Writing Essential)

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on November 2, 2013 0 Comments

Because the time changes always happen on Sunday morning, it falls on my shoulders to remind you of what you need to do.

Yep, it’s that time of year for most of the US and Canada. Remember to turn your clocks back an hour before going to bed tonight.

Now that business is out of the way, let’s get on to our Saturday challenge.

This is a jam-packed month for me. Two ex-wives have their birthdays this month along with my oldest son.

We also celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday and Veterans Day this month (two very important holidays for me).

Surely there is something dealing with this month that has some special meaning for you. Why not tell us about it.


This Week’s Challenge:

Use prose or poetry to write something (fiction, nonfiction, or essay) about the month of November.



As always, I’ll give you a link to one of the many sites that provides holiday information for the month of  November. You can use this site or any of the others that provide standard and weird holidays.

Write about a birthday, anniversary, great party you held/attended, or even a divorce (if you’re as weird as I am).

Write a fantasy about the Easter Bunny getting ready for Easter and starting as early as November to get everything prepared.


Watch Out For:

The only thing I require is that your post be about the month of November, some holiday or celebration during this month, or… just use the word “November” in your post.



I had a lot of fun reading these and hope you’ll enjoy them as much.
