The Last Challenge of the Year

I am posting this here as well, just in case any of you would like to participate and you happen to be users on Medium. This is our last writing prompt/challenge of the year, so it simply makes sense to spread the news here as well. The theme of focus: love and how you like it. Read further for the details.


Writers: A Challenge

How Do You Like Your Love?

Tell me what you can creatively about how you like your love, but do so using 1–3 words only. One definition of the word love is as follows:

  1. an intense feeling of deep affection.

When you think of love, what comes to your mind? How would you write about the word love, but succinctly and in micro-poetic form? How do you like your love? What do you expect from it? What pushes you to love and love always?

Share your thoughts about love, but using 1–3 words only. That is the challenge, that is the kicker. Can you do it? Are you up for it? How do you like your love?

An example:

Always in
abundance


Let’s make this happen, people!

A Short Break

Enjoy What You Can While You Can

know that you are worthy
of time spent with your heart’s beats—
a few moments to embrace
the world around you
and hold tight to a lover’s arm
when they offer you
a shoulder or a listening ear.


A Cornered Gurl will be taking a short break to wind down, relax, read a few good books, and embrace the peace and quiet of my surroundings. If you intend to celebrate the upcoming holiday, please enjoy every minute of it. 

Creative writing and other posts to resume on Friday, November 29, 2019. Love hard. Be well. Write with all your might. 

Peace and blessings.

Author’s Note: I love a good picture or group selfie with my family. They add to the many happy memories I have stored in my phone, on my computer, and on my laptop. Every time we create another digital keepsake, my heart smiles. Originally published via Medium.
