I realize this is a little late, but happy New Year to you all! I took a couple of days off – I was sick on New Years night and wiped out the next day because of it. So now I am trying to catch up on reading and I am still trying to wrap my brain around what to do.
I have contemplated Wordy Wednesdays, Talkative Tuesdays/Thursdays, Shorthand Saturdays/Sundays, and even Monologue Mondays… none of them seemed to fit right. I don’t want to be chained down to a particular day. Almost all the time I was growing up and was terribly shy I would be told to speak up and stop mumbling, so I think Mumbles is a good fit.
Don’t ask me where I am headed with Mumbles, I am not entirely sure yet. I like to think of it as a conversation between friends. Who knows where my mind may wander to, but I honestly hope you will continue to join me in this written journey.
I do plan to still do the daily word prompts this year, but will try occasionally to branch out from only poetry posts. There were a couple of words that really threw me on poetic standings, but I can always find ways to write around a topic (I think). So that will be a challenge to try some flash fiction, limit word writing and maybe even structured poetry besides haikus and limericks.
Forgive me tonight as I fill your readers or inboxes with posts trying to catch up to date on daily posts. One other thing I want to ask of you… please share with me what you like and don’t like about my mumbles. I welcome comments!
So I will try to speak up a little but listen closely because this year will be my year to mumble…
