WRITER’S LINK: “Over The Horizon”

Hello Islanders!

It’s Tuesday, January 8th, somewhat before 12:01 AM on the U.S. east coast. This post opens early this night because I am at a College Football Championship party — and I didn’t want to open the Writer’s Link late.

It’s time to tell us what you envision ‘over the horizon’ for yourself.

It could be that you already know something wonderful that is just over your horizon — tell us about it.

Perhaps you can recount an unexpected episode or event that you encountered as you made your way over a past horizon. Maybe tell us about what you think would be a great surprise, or a source of much concern for you to discover over the horizon.

You can simply use the prompt to inspire a bit of creative writing. If you don’t want to share a peek over the horizon — write about whatever moves you.

Here is the post to which you can submit, in the ‘comments’ section, your link to your piece now posted on your blog. Remember, post only the link to your work here — not the piece itself… and please make certain your link is accurate.

If you’re new, welcome ashore! More details of ‘How To Be An Islander’ are posted in the sidebar. If you’ve returned, a warm welcome back!

Writers Island belongs to us all. Please let us know what you want and need on the island to make it an enjoyable and nurturing experience.

What you have to share regarding “Over The Horizon” — or whatever it is you have written… we’re all eager to hear! So let’s everyone get comfortable here on the island, and share our work.

  1. “It doesn’t matter how slowly you go, as long as you don’t stop.”

    Here’s my walk, my journey to the sea and over the horizon where The Flickering Lights beacon my dreams.

    I wish all well.

    ~ Jeques

    Yay – I’m back! I’ve written another of my poems about the city I live in, inspired by the word ‘horizon’, rather than about what might be in my future.

    This prompt brought a serious poem out of me. Thanks, as always!

  8. My wife and I knew that death was over the horizon, but we did not think it would be so soon. We had to put our oldest cat, Blessing, to sleep this evening.

    I have posted a tribute poem called, “The Gray Warrior”, along with pictures from his life.

    Thank you my friends.

  30. Chris

    I just finished, but my family isn’t allowing me to re-read, so I hope I haven’t missed anything too glaring. My husband and I had a discussion as to whether “captain” should be capitalized or not. We decided not, anyone else…
