November Writing: Are We There Yet?

In keeping with the month’s theme of
Arrivals and departures header

Your topic for the next two weeks is


When I think of arrivals I don’t think of a character arriving at their destination but the people at that destination waiting to receive them. There is so much preparation that goes into receiving a guest. The days leading up to their arrival pass in a blink, as do the days of their visit. Have you ever noticed how fast a vacation passes? Ten days in the office take about twelve to get through, but ten days on a beach or holed up in a woodsy cabin only last about five. Vacations are the worst kind of time travel.

So what will you write about? Is the family coming over the river and through the woods for Thanksgiving? Did your astronaut take her first steps on Enceladus? Maybe there was an addition to the family or the zombies are at your door. The possibilities are as limitless as your imagination. We can’t wait to see what you come up with.


The contest submissions for ‘Arrivals’ are due by 11:45pm (EST) on Sunday, November 29. I forgot to mention with ‘Departures‘ (due tonight) that there was no word count limit. I think a reasonable max cap is 6,000 words. Don’t go too crazy with it 😉

    In response to your question, “Are we there yet?” I have to say: YES, wherever you go, there you are. 😛
