July Themes

Where did June go? This summer has flown by all too quickly, and I never put up the June writing prompts. I apologize to my bloggers that share their stories on this site.

This time I am not placing dates or deadlines, just the writing prompts, so share when you can.

Since July is all about hot summer nights and friends, I decided to use these as suggestions for our stories. Have fun, and do not forget to share your tales.

  1. Hey Ann Marie. Hope you are going well.

    I wasn’t quite sure whether any of these posts would qualify under the Hot Summer Nights theme, but here goes. One is a book review set in the South during the sweltering summer of 1954: https://kindredconnection.wordpress.com/2019/04/12/the-dry-grass-of-august/. The other is a poem I wrote about 25 years ago called Summer Sizzle: https://kindredconnection.wordpress.com/2011/03/12/summer-sizzle/.

    Thanks! 🙂


  2. Hello Anne Marie. Someone turned the calendar into fast-forward for June because it barely existed for me too. July is here though and you prompted us with the thought of Friends. I have a story for this prompt, but you’ve seen it already. In late May, one of the players in this story, a dear friend from my high school years lost a battle with a weak heart and went home to the comfort and safety of our Lord. Those who knew her are still trying to re-catch our breath because she was one of the best of all of us. If you would care to re-share this story, I would consider it a huge favor as I’m still trying to find a way to honor her memory with an essay that captures more of her larger than life personality. In the mean time, you might recall this story, but note where I call out Denise. She also added some feedback which has taken on new value as some of the last words she shared with me. Here’s the link if you’d like to re-experience of these friends with me. https://garyawilsonstories.wordpress.com/my-penngrove-pivot/
