Looking for #WQWWC?

We moved yesterday. Our internet is now up, but I just rolled out of bed after a night with howling cats because they got scared in a new place. It sounded like a trip to the vet. I moved boxes and papers and cleared a space on my computer table to slide my computer in front of Vince’s.

I know it is one of those lame excuses.

Yvette from Priorhouse Blog agreed to host #WQWWC this week, and here is a link to her post yesterday. Like a numbskull, I didn’t announce it until my last post for Sunday Stills/Lens Artists Cee’s, Becky B’s and Colleen’s latest challenges. Thank you so much Yvette for hosting this week!!! Please post your replies and pingbacks on her blog this week.

To get started I have all the topics listed on my #Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays Writing Challenge page. This week’s topic is “Persistence” if you want to get a head start.

Autty Jade is my guest hostess next week. You will remember she hosted a few weeks ago about the topic, “New Beginnings.” Don’t forget to leave your comments and pingbacks on their blogs for today and next Wednesday.

Thank you for your love of quotes and writing. I’ll be visiting all the pingbacks, too. πŸ™‚

A Day in the Brine

For a long stretch of time, I nuzzled through the moon-bathed Past like a mud-caked armadillo. Without thought, an armored little automaton, I snouted through nests of blaspheme vine and toppled barbed-wire fences, scrabbled about pale, mortuous spines of driftwood, and plashed into oiling, mist-cloaked swamps.

It seems my mind went on pause sometime shortly before she died.

β€œMy characters are drifters and searchers and they look for something. The journey is a state of mind for them.” -Wim Wenders

Something wound round me, protective, choking, like a strangler fig. A pinhole sparked through the muscled arms of roots, providing a strange, light-and-shadow-view of the world.

β€œThe mind is its own place, and in itself
Can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.” -John Milton

I always loved dead and withered things. The the smell of sun-baked bones and the exhaust of moldered leaves glinting like tar…

This Week’s Topic – LIGHT or LIGHTS

I am inspired by Terri Webster Schrandt’s Sunday Stills Photo Challenge topics for December 13th. – Light or lights

Lights might be physical like the Christmas decorations we see lit up in people’s yards and in their homes. Lights glow. People light up when we see them. We have a certain glow when we are happy.

Don’t take this lightly, but the word light has many meanings, sixteen as a noun alone according to Merriam Webster. Even the word lights has two meanings. The second meaning is “the lungs especially of a slaughtered animal,” again from Merriam.

Light is also a popular verb with five definitions, two as a transitive verb and three more as an intransitive verb. Watch old movies and watch almost every actor and actress light up. Education about the dangers of smoking and the process of vaping has put an end to that light connection.

As an adjective you might use as many as 19 different meanings as you think about writing a light verse or a light comedy script.

I’m looking forward with a light heart to whatever you have to write. Quotes abound. Let one of them light up your imagination.
