In the meantime, I need to think of something else to write to make up for some lost time on my New Year's Resolution project... but knowing me, my brain won't be able to ditch the ideas for The Narrator for anything else until it's at least halfway composed, and then I'll get bored with that project and switch gears. But maybe this time it'll be different! Let us pray...
I'm trying to remember exactly how many weeks I'm behind on #WritAWeek2018... and what recent occasions I could write a belated work about. The last entry was on May the 4th... "Star Wars Day." But, that story wasn't ABOUT Star Wars Day, it was about the following day, Cinco de Mayo... or, as it's called in the story, "Jar Jar Binko de Mayo." At first, I hated that name, but now I'm grateful for my friend Tony for allowing me "Revenge of the Sixth." Now there are at least three Star Wars days! Though, with George Lucas's birthday, the anniversary of the original movie, and the release of Solo: A Star Wars Story next week, this May is more like Star Wars Month.
There were events in April I didn't chronicle with a written work, either. I wrote one about a comedian inspired by the "Weird Al" Yankovic concert I saw on 4/14, but nothing for Earth Day, I think... I could do a quick Random Haiku...
Earth Day Random Haiku:
"Each spring brings Earth Day.
With recent discoveries,
Mars Day may come soon."
Hmm... That led me to think of another one...
"Earth Day? Why not make
Mars Day? That would make the late
Ray Bradbury proud."
In addition to Battle of Pueblo Day, there was Free Comic Book Day on May 5th... so I could do something with that...
FCBD Random Haiku:
"May's first Saturday
brings free comics, which I like
more than May flowers."
Then came Mother's Day... I wrote a Mother's Day story years ago (part of what was intended to be a series that I haven't expanded upon), but I suppose I could write a belated Mother's Day story or haiku... something.
Belated Mother's Day Random Haiku:
"Moms are our first loves.
Mother's Day's over, but I
know mine forgives me."
Four down... and since I was a couple weeks behind on May 4th, and that was two weeks ago today, I must be about caught up... even if haikus are a cop-out. I have to check my calendar to be sure, but I must be pretty close to being on time... I just need to write the intro to The Narrator... More later. Thanks for reading!
