As summer slowly slips away, now would be a great time to share your favorite summertime memories. Remember to share your stories.
May 21, 2019 was not a good day. I lost a great friend that day and have been trying to devise a way to honor her memory.
With the theme of hot summer nights, what could be better than a poem entitled “Sizzle.” Her use of imagery makes her poem come alive. Please take a moment to read this poem by KTC. Sizzle
For those hot summer nights, some may want to curl up with a good book in front of the cooler. According to KTC, you will not be disappointed in the book The Dry Grass of August by Anna Jean Mayhew. It chronicles the life of Jubie Watts, her family, and their black housekeeper Mary Luther, a woman that Jubie loves and admires. Read the stirring book review by KTC on The Dry Grass of August.
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.
When my youngest brother, Danny, was in school, he had to research our family names. When my grandfather discovered the meaning for the surname of Allen, he agreed with the description, for he maintained the Allen men were as strong as a rock and extremely handsome!
She turned back to the rock face and simultaneously let go of the rope with both hands, just like she had lost consciousness, flung herself backwards and (my favorite part) screamed like she was falling to her death.
We risked letting go of each other just enough to silently – carefully point to one another. No one believed either of us about whose fault it was….
Did you or a family member ever share a tall tale? How did that story pan out? Share your story!
Let’s share some stories for May! With these high-spirited topics, the tales should be fun-loving and humorous. Happy writing!
