So I’ll take this unexpected blogging schedule break to tell you a secret.
This week’s photo prompt is going to be difficult for some of you. It’s difficult for me, too. If you panic when you see it, take a deep breath and look at other things in the picture – if the subject matter doesn’t lend itself to a story for you, consider the mood, the time of day, the feelings and just write from there. The story doesn’t have to be about the things you *see* with your eyes when you look at it. But that’s not the secret.
There’s a sneak preview to it on my FB page. That’s the secret. When I have the photo picked out early, from now on, I’ll use it for the header photo on my regular account and my page. If you have a FB account, you can find my link in the side-bar on this blog. I believe you can see the profile even if you don’t do the FB thing.
No guest for today. I’ll have to do some more digging around the internet for future invitees, but I have the next few weeks lined up. If you know someone with an interesting story to tell or has a writerly, readerly business to promote, feel free to suggest a candidate.
I’ve been editing and researching some details in Symbiosis this morning about the island of Thera. It disappeared in a volcanic explosion about 3500 years ago and quite possibly is the origin of the Atlantis theories. It’s also the first safe haven Ki knew after she was rescued from the destruction Neti wrought on the temple where she was born. Seems that destruction followed her wherever she went from there…so it’s probably a good thing she doesn’t stay in one place too long anymore. There’s only one place safe for her to go and only one person who knows she needs to be there. Now if he could just convince her to agree…
