PromptlySusan: October 20, 2011 Prompt #23

Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on October 21, 2011 0 Comments

Flogging myself with words here. I plum forgot about writing the prompt last night and Thursdays are my busy days. I have a Toastmasters meeting in the morning and I volunteer at hospice from 1 – 5 pm. Between times today, I ran an errand to take my dog in for a hair cut. After hospice, I cleaned house a bit and took the family out to eat at a Thai restaurant. We didn’t return until after nine o’clock.

So here I sit an hour later hoping to appease my dear writer-gather-friends with my tardy prompts.

Use one or more of the following prompts:

  • poetry: sonnet
  • prose: rant
  • all words: fail, fellow, frieze, frank
  • theme: gardens
  • phrase: Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul. –Michel de Montaigne
  • graphic:






You were prolific last week! I am terribly behind. I’m slowly surfacing and will comment on each one of your submissions to PromptlySusan as long as they are tagged correctly. Searching by tags is how I find them.

Many of these are quick and not-so-dirty than-bauk poems, which was the prompted form last week. You might have an excuse not to read them, but lack of time won’t be one of them. Hmmm. Now what’s my excuse then? Okay, I’ll go read them tonight.
