8:56 a.m. — San Antonio
listening to A Ring of Fire sung by Marty Robbins
Happy 2016, everyone. Are you recovering from the excesses that are December? I have many favourite moments: opening the steampunk goggles from my husband; getting extra days with our daughter, Marguerite (sorry about the weather, Chicago); Skyping with the Vermont part of our family; and discovering m’rite’s Irish coffee, which she made for us several nights. There are more. In fact, possibly a list poem… hmmm.
I had had another idea for today, but am sure you are in recovery mode and this is a pleasant re-entry. List your favourite moments from December 1st through 31st. Look at what you have and decide what you want to do. You can:
1] Focus on one moment. The speaker can be in that moment, or recalling that moment. First or third person point of view.
2] The same as #1, but link the moment to a memory.
3] Fashion a list poem.
4] An idea of your own.
Nice and easy. Next week, we’ll leap back in. I will see you Thursday for links and Tuesday for my next prompt.
Happy New Year and happy writing, all.
