It’s March!! And I am behind this month! My daughter just had a birthday, and I recently had family visiting. So, now it’s time to get back on track.
For those who have been following me, you’ll know I am behind this month. My goal this year is to write a short story every month. I try to post the prompt on the 1st of the month. Obviously that didn’t happen this month. Then sometime between the 20th and the end of the month, the story appears.
March’s prompt is:
I’ve lived in this town my whole life, and most of the time that’s fine by me. But in late fall when the sky fills with birds migrating south for the winter, traveling thousands of miles, I get homesick for places I’ve never been. Places like …
As I say every month, if you want to write a story too that uses the prompt, let me know. I will post your story on my blog too. I would love to see what someone else comes up with using the same prompt as me.
Before I get started on this month’s story, I want to reflect a little on last month’s story. Here is the story if you haven’t read it: A Mage Like Any Other. Ultimately, I feel like it wasn’t finished. I would like to go back and work on it some more. In fact, I see the potential for it to be much longer. I think it’s something I’m going to work on separately from my monthly posts though. Once I get it developed more, I will share the more complete version (or at least I hope it will seem that way in the end).
As always, happy writing and reading this month! Hope you complete all your goals for this month!
