This is it! Blog Battle’s Glorious Return
We’ve all heard how writing is a lonely business. Well, I think we’ve all heard it. And if not, now we have. But in the world of the internet, writing doesn’t have to be nearly so isolated a pursuit!
Blog Battle isn’t your typical writing prompt. At our core, we want to create relationships, build life-long writer friendships, and encourage each other to become better writers than we were yesterday.
Admittedly, this means a little extra work. BUT! It is worth it. People are worth it. The value we gain from connecting with other writers who are on the same journey we are cannot be measured by analytics or the next best thing in social media marketing.
That brings us here, to Blog Battle. When you take up the monthly prompt, write your short fiction, and then share it with us, you are entering into a community. Don’t think of this as a “post and pray someone reads my stuff” writing prompt. That is all well and good (Truly it is. We all want to be read.), but the idea is to go out and read your fellow writers, share their work, share each other’s work, comment, connect, make friends, encourage, help and learn something new along the way.
So, what d’ ya say? Ready to join the battle against the writing machine? Ready to become part of our legion of writers?
Here is our comtribution for this month!
When the earth covers the sun,
leaving us with old age magic
As thought so many years ago
Today, I see it as the earth claiming
her full crown rather than a tiara
The Corona, Earth’s full glory
A light so bright we dare not look without protection
Reminding me of the beautiful colours
that surround the pupils of our eyes
A corona of sorts.
Eyes have long fascinated me
Many and varied, some with the most exciting patterns
They say more than the sound of the voice
I listen to both.
My neighbour’s window, first thing in the morning
When the sun hits it, there is a corona of light
A perfect circle reflected on the old flint wall
opposite my living room window
My eye on the world
The Sun plays tricks with the light
Even though Mercury is said to be the trickster
The halo around the head of a saint
Shows me his head is in the way of the light
His personal corona
We all have a light around us
Kirlian photography can show this
As beautiful as any made by Earth or Moon
Yet late at night when the clouds are just right
The amazing coloured halo around the Moon
Is by far the best corona
Search for the light, after all it is magic
The first thing called into being…
