This week’s Gather Writing Essentials challenge continues our look at journeys. For Thursday May 17, 2012 we will focus on weather. Weather affects our journeys in so many ways. The heat of a cloudless day will slow us down even making us stop frequently while a mild beautiful day will not only give us the desire to walk faster but even encourage a little bit of running. A heavy down pour will slow us down as we slosh through the rain while a wind at our back can push us forward. A bad storm will make us seek shelter until the sun comes out refreshingly enough to entice us back on our journey. Weather affects us every day for good or for bad but on our journeys weather has the power to make it easy or hard.
Your Challenge for Thursday May 17th is to create a post not just about weather but about the weather we encounter on our journeys.
As always all genres are encouraged but for this week there is one limit that must be met if you wish to meet the challenge. The limit is that weather on our journeys must be somewhere in our posts. This would be yet another great challenge for our writers, poets, our photo journalists and our picture book creators.
The challenge has been set. Ladies and Gentlemen I look forward to all of the creative posts meeting this challenge. I have been asked to remind all who can’t wait to meet this challenge to submit your posts no earlier than 12:01 AM. Keep in mind that this is a THURSDAY CHALLENGE. I wouldn’t in anyway want to make things difficult for my friend who edits so well Wednesday.
