Part two of the Papua New Guinea story is upcoming but when I saw this prompt “bite” I could not resist especially since I had the perfect photo for it. Plus Mindlovemisery challenge said you can use your own art or photo. Second Life is a bit between the two. Although I do love the pic they gave for the challenge if you wished — a huge stone hand reaching out of the sea — it’s awesome. On top of that, Real Toads gives a selection of November themes to write too: one of which is zombies!
I also enjoy writing for DVerse Pub, Haiku Hub and Poetry in Form. Ok, I admit. I love these writing challenges. So much fun. Often they throw me in a direction I don’t think of going. I was in a mental rut before I started haiku. But having to write one a day, I’m reading science, new discoveries, history, folktales, or writing quick stories. And reading/seeing different blogs, creativity, quotes, photographs and facts all come tumbling out. Nowadays, I learn or see something new just about everyday — I may not remember it but I do learn it for the day, lol. Makes my brain feel all perky! Mind runs around all excited! (Ok, time for my nap now 😉
