#94 - Fellow Travelers

I read this term -- "fellow travelers" -- on a blog this morning, and the writer intended it in the context of fellow bloggers she had met over the course of her own journey -- her life journey, journey of self-discovery. And I really liked that. I also like the idea of all the stories we are sure to have of fellow travelers on boats and buses and trains, in far-off lands, or even at home. I know I do, and I'm curious to hear about yours!

Writing this took a lot out of me. It's based upon a true event told me by a friend from way back in my college days. I like to think that they did have a happy reunion.

I'm looking forward to reading the results.

Is the automatic linky thing no longer happening, or is it just not showing up on my browser for some reason?!

It is interesting how this prompt fit my daily painting. I couldn't believe it, so I named my art piece after the prompt.

This began as a tale of a cross-country road trip and grew into a tribute to a great dog. Those of you who are dog lovers will get it. If you are not a dog lover, I feel sorry for you.

I thank you for this prompt. I wasn't going to participate this week...but life has other intentions for us I believe. These prompts over the last few weeks have been personally revealing for me.

Beyond the Blog

Hi Laini & Meg

I couldn't find an email for you so decided to contact you in this way. Hope you don't mind.

I've been in the writers' prompt community for about a month now, and I've decided to start my own prompt. This will not involve fiction or poetry, so should not affect your own excellent prompts/services.

In many communities, certain sites become central points of info for the community, linking to blog posts of interest, thus driving traffic to the blogs. I've noticed there isn't one for this community.

For this reason, I'll be including this facility in my new prompt post, linking to the main writer/prompt blog posts. As I am in many other communities, this should eventually drive even more traffic to you.

I've sent this email to advise you of this, and ask if you do not want me to link to your site, please let me know and I will not do so. I'd also welcome any input you have on the idea.

best wishes
Anthony North
