(Wednesday Writing Essentials – WWE 3/28/12- Birds)

Birds of a Feather.

I desperately want to give credit to the wonderful person that suggested this challenge to me, but alas, I’ve now spent an hour searching for the comment and to no avail. This will not happen again. It will be carved in stone. Will the person responsible for this splendid challenge please stand up?  (Clap, clap, clap) and thank you.

The suggestion was Blue Birds and I immediately visualized photo essays and stories of all sorts of birds – not just Blue Birds, but any type of bird. Then, oops, my weird imagination took over and I thought that Edgar Allen Poe never listened to his best friend, the Raven. Poe just kept on writing. Oh, and The Birds , hen pecking, ???Bird drops keep falling on my head ???, the bird of paradise or perhaps the Phoenix bird rising from a pile of ashes.

I am a bird lover and enjoy the red winged black birds that come in droves to share their song. One year our pond was full of tuxedo ducks and gray herons. There is no limit on what you can write to this challenge.


My challenge is to write anything you want (in any form you desire) about birds.

Ideas: I’ll be anxiously waiting to read your ideas.

Suggestions: Sure, please correct my grammar and send me challenges you’d like to see.

The Rules:

Make sure you put this (Wednesday Writing Essentials – WWE – Birds) in your title.

Be sure to tag it with WWE, Birds, Gather Writing Essentials.

Post to Gather Writing Essential.

I ask that you make your submission(s) by next Tuesday afternoon.

There is a limit of three submissions from each member per day. If you’re extremely prolific, spread out your work and post only three submissions per day.

Put this challenge statement at the beginning or end of your submission so readers will know what you’re supposed to do and won’t think you’re crazy.


Write (in any form you desire) about birds.
