INTRO

Have you ever thought about how silly our planet is? When it’s spring in one hemisphere, it’s fall in another. And yet, we can share stories of sun sillies across the world. We all experience the elation of sunshine and how we can respond.

Some writers found serious topics, such as melanoma. Some simply discovered seriously silly stories or crafted sheer wordplay.

The following are based on the April 5, 2018, prompt: In 99 words (no more, no less) write a silly sun story.

    • Spring has sprung in fairyland. 😀 I actually created a category so I could reblog the challenge recaps. I mention the challenge in my newsletter sign up too. Every little bit helps. 😀

      • Thank you, Colleen! That helps! In fact, it reminds me to get my Resources Page updated. You can send me a blurb about your poetry challenge and I’ll set that up on the page.

          • Good! And if you have other Sisters in your fey who might be interested, please let them know. My intent is to have a community resource page for writers to discover different prompts and blogging communities. I picture Carrot Ranch being a hub, connecting writers, but also connecting communities. Thank you! ❤
