Share Your World — Age, Mystery, Power, and the Great Outdoors

Share Your WorldIt’s already the last Monday of the first month of the new decade. Sheesh, where does the time go? But that aside, it’s Monday, and that means it’s time once again for Melanie’s Share Your World prompt.

What age would you like to live to?

At my age I’m grateful for every year I’m still around, but I’d like to live another 10 years, at least, so that maybe my grandson, who is due to be born in late May, will be old enough when I die to remember who I am.

What mystery do you wish you knew the answer to?

Who killed Cock Robin? Was it really the sparrow or was he covering up for one of the other creatures? And what was the motive? Everyone loved Cock Robin.

Does absolute power corrupt absolutely?


What outdoor activity haven’t you tried, but would like to?

Oh, I’ve pretty much done all of the outdoor activities I ever wanted to try. There are some outdoor activities, like bungee jumping or skydiving, that I haven’t tried, but that’s because I don’t have a desire to severely injure myself or to die a horrible, painful death.

Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #51

FFFCWelcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.” Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenge bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.

The image below is from Cottonbro at the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a woman holding up to the light and looking at a strip of film negatives that seems to show images of two people outdoors.

If this week’s image inspires you and you wish to participate, please write your post, use the tag #FFFC, and link back to this post. I hope it will generate some great posts.

Thanks to all of you who have participated in these challenges so far. Your posts have been very creative. Please take a few minutes to read the other responses to this photo challenge.

FOWC with Fandango — Scarce

FOWCWelcome to January 27, 2020 and to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). It’s designed to fill the void after WordPress bailed on its daily one-word prompt.

I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (US).

Today’s word is “scarce.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments.

The issue with pingbacks not showing up seems to have been resolved, but you might check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. You will marvel at their creativity.
