  1. Haiku time — because that’s the only poetry I’m decent at! πŸ˜‰

    It snapped very loud.
    No one knows where it came from.
    Everybody run!

    Thanks for the prompt! I hope it was good. πŸ˜‰

    1. Amazing thank you Rachel, I am so glad you posted I will post this with a link to your site on my next one (Saturday). Do you know, I don’t actually know how to write a Haiku! are there rules? or is it just three lines?

      1. Haikus are typically three lines–the first line has five syllables, the second line has seven syllables, and the third line has five syllables. So, 5-7-5.

        It’s kind of “easy.” The tricky part is just trying to have it all make sense, lol.

      2. I know that feeling. I have such a long list and it’s stressing me out! I can’t decide whether to do the April NaNo or the July I just desperately want to finish my novel and know I won’t without the pressure of NaNo or similar!

  2. Fun! And I didn’t count my words. πŸ˜‰

    Snapped by Charli Mills

    Syd sat up in bed. That sound? Again. Like a twig snapping in the woods. She grabbed her fuzzy plaid robe and slid each foot into frayed slippers. Downstairs she felt the coolness of the night. The front door was open and another twig snapped. Her father was sitting on the front porch in his work clothes; his legs swung over the planks. A branch that had fallen from the backyard pine earlier that spring was draped over his lap. Snap. He broke off a smaller limb. Snap. Snap. He broke it in half and half again.

    β€œDad. What are doing home? Why aren’t you at work?”

    Snap. β€œTurned fifty last month, you know.”

    β€œI know, Dad.” Syd had returned home after college to figure out what to do next. Her Dad worked graveyards at the machining plant. A good job to have in the hard times of a small town.

    Snap. β€œShift manager says he can’t afford to pay health insurance on an older worker.”

    β€œDad, that’s discrimination.”

    β€œI snapped. I punched him. Grounds for instant termination.”
