The Year proceeds apace. By the time I come back to post again, it will be May. Spring has fully sprung in the Northern Hemisphere. The world has turned upside-down for months, now. Writing, and reading, continue to be important as avenues of escape and focus on something other than the oddities of daily life.
Write on, my friends, write on.
Remember: no wordcounts, no judgements. It doesn’t have to be fiction, or even captured in words if you prefer a visual medium. Here, you have the freedom to create, with no pressure.

The next visual is a spare prompt for anyone who’d like to spark something from it.
