As Only A Woman Can · Weekend Writing Warriors

Weekend Writing Warriors #8


Something’s going on here in the Pacific Northwest. That circular disc in the sky — so warm, so bright! What is that thing? Where are our clouds? Where is our drizzle?

Rhymes about Wickham came bubbling up, and Darcy seized a sheet of paper. Words, wonderful words, spilled onto the page.

A companion of drunkards, a friend to the

Darcy gave a shout of laughter. Best not to use that rhyme! Even if it was abundantly true of Wickham.

He’d probably had a shade too much brandy; yes that was it. Even so, these secret Valentines were becoming rather fun.
