Sunday Writing Essential (SunWE, 03/16/14, Irish Green)

 

It’s the last (for now) of our holiday challenges, and this week I’m featuring St. Patrick’s Day.

St. Patrick was a prominent figure in early Christianity, responsible for much of the conversion of Ireland and its people. Today, the holiday is as much about the Irish culture as it is about the Saint. You can check out more information on St. Patrick’s Day here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Patrick’s_Day

So in honour of the Emerald Isle and its Saint, I’m issuing an Irish themed challenge:

The Challenge:

Write a story (fiction or non-fiction) or a poem about Ireland, St. Patrick, the Irish, or the Wearing of the Green.

 

The List of Things to Do:

  • Add this Challenge Statement to the post: Write a story (fiction or non-fiction) or a poem about Ireland, St. Patrick, the Irish, or the Wearing of the Green.
  • Put (SunWE, 03/16/14, Irish Green) in your post title.
  • Be sure to tag your post with SunWE, Gather Writing Essential, and Irish Green.
  • Then post it to Gather Writing Essential. You can also comment below with the link to your post to ensure I find it.
  • And try to post it by next Sunday.

 

There is also a limit of three submissions from each member per day, which you can follow or ignore at your discretion.

Also, if you would like a detailed critique of your response to a challenge, feel free to request it at the end of your post. Otherwise, I’ll simply leave a nice comment.

 

Here are the responses I found for the “Be Nasty” challenge:
