My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Preparing for Wednesday Haiku

This week's theme:

Preparation time
Whatever I need is there
All laid out neatly.

I take a deep breath
Prepare myself for the worst
There's no going back.

Sleeping bags and tent
Provisions all in rucksack
Stout walking boots on.

Who Rides a Pig On St. Patty' s Day?
Write a 200ish word flash fiction entry about something to do with SPD(real, fantasy, whatever makes your pig squeal). OR, you could also write about a memory you haveof a past SPD. In the end, we aren't being picky. Just make it goooood and make it about St. Patricks Day! (Leprechauns, luck, gold, green, clovers, beer, celebrations, etc. Funny, touching, horrifying, dark, fast-paced, romantic, etc.)
I may be cheating by sending you all to an older post, but it seemed to fit the brief although it's not flash fiction.

I was inspired to write this influenced by traditional nursery rhymes, which are decidedly unsentimental.
