This meme was started by Delores a long time ago. Computer issues led her to bow out for a while. The meme was too much fun to let go, and now Words for Wednesday is provided by a number of people and has become a movable feast.
Essentially the aim is to encourage us to write. Each week we are given a choice of prompts: which can be words, phrases, music or an image. What we do with those prompts is up to us: a short story, prose, a song, a poem, or treating them with ignore... We can use some or all of the prompts, and mixing and matching is encouraged.
Some of us put our creation in comments on the post, and others post on their own blog. I would really like it if as many people as possible joined into this fun meme, which includes cheering on the other participants. If you are posting on your own blog - let me know so that I, and other participants, can come along and applaud.
Sadly this will be the last month Margaret and her friends provide us the prompts. Margaret's and Sue's health has got in the way and forced them to make decisions about where to devote their energies. I thank them, and will miss them.
This week's prompts are phrases:
- An arm and a leg
- Barking up the wrong tree
Thank you so much to all those who listened to my pleas and agreed to provide the prompts next year. We now have the year filled in, and I will put up a post later showing what it looks like - and seeking confirmation that the dates work for everyone. Mind you, some people are filling multiple months, which worries me a little. If any of them want to step back, please let me know.
