Forward Retreat

Yes, Wordsmiths took an unticipated hiatus. It seems your hosts, and others, were of the opinion that December was so full of other responsibilities little energy was left for this here a-writin' stuff thet takes a-thinkin'.

Before we get started, drop by Tiff's place and congratulate her on the Powerful Writing award she won. Well deserved, methinks.

After the before we get started, we are soliciting ideas for this site in 2008. What could be done differently? What could be improved? What works and what doesn't? Please feel free to give your input in the comments.

At the prestart after the after before start, think upon the Año Nuevo. It is a good time to look forward and reflect on the past, while we try to put our jumbled lives back to normal after the holidays.

Now start. Use the picture below and write a story. You know the drill: 500 words or less, blah,blah, blah. Submissions are due by a link in the comments by January 31.

Oh, and Happy New Year to you all!
