The Sunday Whirl

Posted Sunday April 10


We get Sundays off at the A-Z Challenge. So whilst most of the other 1900 or so participants were putting their feet up, I was busily writing something for The Sunday Whirl!

The given words are:- surface, last, flow, used, talk, us, stands, hope, circle, end, drips and  tales






I don't know what's happening to me. Why is it happening to me? Words used to flow from my mind in an endless stream. Now they are buried somewhere deep below the surface. Do you remember that club where every Monday we sat in a circle and talk for hours on end? Or was it Tuesdays? We told each other tales. We did; didn't we? Yes, I recall the last time. I can see myself standing in the centre and reciting a silly poem. That was me, wasn't it? Or was it Gerald?

It's Monday tomorrow; I think. I hope it is because we do something special on Mondays. Don't we? Or is it Tuesdays?




At midnight tonight, I will post my story for Day 9 of the A-Z Challenge. It will be based on the letter 'I' , and as per my chosen theme, it will include some words that have fallen into disuse.

You can check out my A-Z posts thus far  by clicking  on a highlighted letter!

  1. I have no idea how you manage to take that many words and come up with something that is not only plausible but makes for good reading. This tale rings all to familiar for those whose mind/memory is failing and what was so clear not long ago is now lost in the fog of confusion. Well done.

    1. Josie, my favourite prompt sites are the multi letter ones such as this and Whirligig. Now, what was I saying?!

  6. I love the zany vagueness of this - the older I get, the less I know what day it is!

  9. You are a bit younger than me Keith but I regret to say that malady you are afflicted with is the forgetfulness of old age. Welcome to the club!
