100WCGU – Week #173
What is 100WCGU?
100WCGU stands for 100 Word Challenge for Grown Ups.
Someone asked me why the ‘grown ups’ bit as it seemed odd to add it to a blog post aimed at adults. I explained that it separated this challenge with 100 Word Challenge (find it HERE ) which is a writing challenge for young writers under 16 years of age. We are always looking for folks to comment on these pieces so do get in touch if you would like to support them.
Meet the author
Now for our author of the week. Meet Pat Brockett.
As you can see from my About tab on my blog, it was my daughter and some of her blogging friends that encouraged me to recently start blogging again. I’d begun writing a blog in 2011, and then had to give it up a couple of months later due to the necessities of life. I’m not out there trying to sell any product or necessarily promote a cause. My daughter has participated in a Ten Things of Thankful blog for some time, so that is where I started to participate again. Since I’ve enjoyed trying to write poetry over the years, have composed a little music, have been an avid journal writer, and enjoy photography. Taking up blogging in my senior years of life is just a new adventure to keep my mind active, learning new things, and making new friends. Probably just as importantly, my blog is one more way for my descendants to see another side of me.
Pat can be found at A Season and a Time. Do pop over and visit her!
This week’s prompt
Weather wise, it feels very strange here in the UK. It is now November but extremely mild. However, we have lots of fog around which makes for great atmosphere for the recent Halloween celebrations and this week, for Bonfire night. Let’s hope the temperature does not drop for November 5th. The prompt has to be around this theme, doesn’t it?!
It is: …as the flames leapt skyward..
