My contribution to the #247Challenge. I'm loving reading everyone's work for #NationalWritingDay with my 11-yr-old. There's something about lockdown that seems to lend itself to short forms whether flash fiction or poetry.
Perhaps it's the sense of urgency from living in a pandemic? Or perhaps it's that lots of emotions spiral to the surface in times of great upheaval, making it easier for those emotions to spill on to the page?
Either way, I've found myself turning to poetry, both reading and writing, quite often these past few months.
