I am a constellation
pasted to a smear of deep sky or
some god spun leaf drifting
a wintry blue pond or a
flame living in fire.
My tongue turns silvery around
my words, do not take them
for sorrow I have named them
Do not forget me.
I still need you to carry me
over the pierce of thorns for
My hands are good for nothing
but a plea do not forget me
I am still here my hair a tangle
Let us take by our hands
By our hearts, by our heads
Let us sing together
The song of humanity
Let us forget dark nights between us
And let the sun shine on us
Let us treat as humans
As brother as sisters
Let us live love among us
Compassion from man to man
Let us help each other
Live for each other
Let us overcome differences
On the level of man
Let us not see the mistakes of others
But let us work on our own ones
Let us share a happy smile
To be happy together

“It’s not the load that breaks you down. It’s the way you carry it.”
Wow. Profound quote, you found there, Spidey!
And quite apt, again. (Seriously, how do you do that, every week? Find something that suits my mindset?)
As I type this, I am mulling over the aannouncements made by
BoZo, sorry, BoJo, aka Boris Johnson, our bumbling buffoon of a Prime Minister, this afternoon evening. (It was due for 4 pm, then stretched to 5pm after which, it was sometime after 5 pm, which ended up just after 6.30 pm, I think.
Sorry, where was I?
Oh, yes. That announcement.
Well, it appears that as of Thursday, (because the virus knows to wait until then before spreading more) England will be entering national lockdown take 2.
Similar to that of March, but different, still.
Last time we all thought it was a couple of weeks…

Writing is like driving at night in the fog.
You can only see as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.

Today is Day 306 of the 2020 Daily Writing Challenge.
Did you write yesterday?
My year-end countdown has begun, and what a wild ride 2020 has been. The adage says what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger. I’m not dead, yet therefore I must be tougher right? The question becomes — How much can I accomplish before we ring in the new year?
It all starts with a well-conceived strategy, and mine includes a master list of 100 activities to help me reach my annual writing goal. It may sound impossible, but many items are almost insignificant and require fewer than 15 minutes to finish. They are micro-actions, minor jobs that, while they are crucial, they are the ones…

November 1 is the kickoff to National Novel Writing Month. Once more, authors and wannabes pledge to write 50,000 words. Why wouldn’t I succumb to temptation? Despite lacking a specific story idea, an outline, and no clue for the main character, I am all in. I am committed to composing 1,667 daily words. I am embracing full pantsing mode and working without a net. But it doesn’t mean I lack a strategy for winning.
I discovered Reverse NaNo. This format front-loads the word count, seizing the excitement inherent at the start of a new project. Day One requires 3,346 words with falling requirements on successive days. By November 15, the halfway point, I have fewer than the prescribed minimum to add. On the thirtieth, I need a single word to achieve the goal. The second tactic I am adopting is banishing my inner critic and revoking her permission to intervene…
