Some people can take a bunch of random ingredients from the pantry and create a delicious meal. I am not one of those people. When I watch the cooking competition show Chopped, in which chefs are given obscure (and sometimes rather icky) ingredients with which to make a gourmet dish, I see pure genius.
Today’s offering for the On, In, and Around Mondays creative writing exercise is sort of like Chopped. I took a smattering of ingredients from where I was sitting in my writer’s kitchen, mixed them together, and created, well, this. I’m not claiming genius—a fun snack, perhaps? And as in previous weeks, prepositions are the star ingredient, cloaked in blue.
Where are you writing from this week? L. L. Barkat invites you to tell all about it in the post series On, In, and Around Mondays. She calls us to “write from where you are, telling what is on, in, around (over, under, near, by, . . .) you.” Check out other posts from this week’s participants.
