|My mistake, it's Feb 1, 2013. Ooops.|
I'm just doing my thing to the beat of my own erratic drummer, so I wrote mine today.
For a list of the writing prompts I share, please see my Writing Prompt page :)
A story in three Haiku:
Phasing in and phasing out:
To have some control:
The one goal of my lifetime.
Yet I phase.
To shift time and life,
My lonely gift of travel.
I am nine.
Background: My daughter cannot follow conversations. A typical conversation with her is something like:
12yo: "Hey, I think you'd really love this book."
9yo: "Why? Because you're allergic to cotton?"
12yo: "Why do I even talk to you?"
I decided she must shift through dimensions. So these haiku were about trying to see it through her eyes. I think it'd make a fabulous story if I can figure out some great powers and things going on that cause it to happen.
Edit: Wow, boy did I do this wrong. Not only can I not read dates properly, I got the haiku syllable count wrong, too. It was supposed to be 5/7/5. Well. I'm leaving it as is for now, but doing a might powerful /facepalm.
