Thank you to those who expressed your kind concern for my friend. Things are still uncertain, but better than they were. He remains surrounded by caring individuals.
We all had promised each other long ago that when one of us was in need, we would respond. These are remarkable people and I am so very lucky to be among them.
This situation revealed to me what the next prompt should be here on the island… “The Promise”.
So, for the thirteenth Writers Island prompt, think about promises you’ve made — or promises made to you. Was the promise kept, was it broken — what was the result? Maybe it’s a future promise. Will it be kept — yes or no… and why? Perhaps it’s a promise you feel should be made, by you, or someone else.
Share with us about the promise — in your poem, prose, short story, essay, or commentary… then post it on your blog. If not about a promise — write about whatever moves you.
Feel free to include recordings of you reading your work — and any photo, artwork, or graphic representation you feel is relevant.
If you’re new to the island, the details for how to become and islander can be found in the right sidebar. To our regular islanders, you know how to navigate the surf — and welcome back!
Everyone, please return here Tuesday, December 4th. At 12:01 AM, U.S. East Coast time, a new post will be open for you to place, at your convenience, the link to the piece you’ve written — and which you have posted on your site.
