This morning I went out to get a picture of my first winter flower, and took some shots into the house.

November PAD Chapbook Challenge

Today’s final prompt of the challenge is a two for Tuesday:

  • Write a the end poem, and/or…
  • Write a the beginning poem.

Only the Beginning

This is not an end
but a pause to attend
to bending light and hours
dead, then begin again
to render hope and engender
excitement in shadow
never ending contrast
to blend and send
a whirling

If you’ve enjoyed the photographs I’ve been taking, I’ve added some to my RedBubble store and I’m excited about the new products. The abstract bokeh really lends itself to product design. So fun. Sale on Now! Get 20-60% off when you use code CYBER5.


I won! 50k words but that’s only the beginning of this draft. I’m going to take time tomorrow to look over what I’ve written and take notes of important props and plot points and work on writing a complete outline before continuing the draft.

Congratulations to everyone who wrote a novel draft this month!
November Daily Prompts by Maria L. Berg 2021 Please leave your links in the comments. I hope you will join me.

I have enjoyed the one word prompts every day for two months now, and I plan to continue. Tomorrow I will post a new calendar of December prompts. I find it fascinating that one word can help me see in new ways. I rewarded myself for winning Nanowrimo with some new lights, and I’ve reconfigured the mirror world, so I’m excited to see how my techniques build on each other through December.

Happy Reading and Writing!
