Weekend Writing Prompt — Safe Haven

1A3DB945-1DD1-4F6D-BB8E-FD4BCE00B58D Amidst all this sound and fury swirling around us,

This esoteric national catastrophe happening right before our eyes,

I need to grab my backpack

And take us to find a safe haven.

(32 words)

    LOL, I did the Haven prompt for one WIP and then, without reading the post, interpreted “safe haven” as a prompt from you and wrote a chapter for another WIP!
    I think I may be trying to tackle too many projects. I also did a book review today.
    Here is the piece inspired by what I thought was the “Safe Haven” prompt.
    Hope you are having a good weekend. Things are kind of surreal. I never thought I’d see the day I’d find myself siding with Mitt Romney, but here we are. At least he has the guts to take Lord Dampnut to the task.

      And Lord Dampnut has struck back, giving warning to others that disloyalty will incur Twitter wrath.
