Something about autumn invites us to think of death, loss and change. Right now, here in Reno, the sun is shining, the weather is nice, but the wind is trying its darndest to blow the first leaves off the trees. Beautiful cumulus clouds are bouncing around in a blue sky. In a word, there is a battle going on between the fair and the foul.
Let’s take a break this week from the sense of impending doom and have some fun. I invite you to write and submit a short story, essay or poem that touches on humor. Let’s work hard to make each other smile or laugh. For my part, I’m going with a short story I wrote a while back. It was published in a small literary journal and it has an element of memoir (just a touch) in it.
So let’s have some fun:
- Write your short story, essay or poem.
- Post it on your blog.
- Access Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post and share your name and the link to your submission.
- Go ahead, take time to visit other submissions, give them a word of encouragement and enjoy yourself.
