Write2Day–Writing from the Light Side

This will be a somewhat short post, since I’m compelled to give my elbow tendonitis a rest. Last week we discussed writing from the dark side. We all know, there’s plenty of darkness to go around. So today, in order to add contrast to our writer’s palette, let’s light up the place…an appropriate topic for this season of the year when so many traditions celebrate light in one form or another. Think of Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza, Winter Solstice, Diwali…all celebrations that revolve in one way or another around light.

So, for today’s prompt, consider writing about your celebrations of light–or light sources such as the moon, the sun, stars or candles. Maybe you would like to post a humorous piece or something with bright happy colors. How about an event that features joy: children at play, dancing, or music. Take it wherever you like, but let’s get out of the doldrums for this week’s prompt.

To participate:
Write your poem or short prose and post it to your blog.
Access Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.
Include your name and the direct URL to your poem.
Visit and comment on other participants.

You will find my poem for dVerse OLN in the previous post!

Next week at dVerse I will be hosting Meeting the Bar (Thursday, 3 PM EST). In that post, I will focus in more depth on the subject of contrast. Hope to see you there as well.

    A great idea. I will see if I can find time to participate, but anyway I think it’s time for something from the lighter side.

  5. I did light on my blog a few days ago as part of my Advent Calendar (of sorts) but it’s not fiction so I won’t add it to the linky. You can find it here though.

    Hi Victoria–light is a wonderful thing to think about any time of year. Mine is not a new poem, but I’ve been thinking a lot about a poem relating to light that I haven’t been able to write down yet–so a very prompt prompt! Thanks, as always, for your thoughtful words. K.
