This month, we’re editing months.
Which makes no sense, if you could see my life right now – such a busy time of year! Life entails zero time to do things I love – namely, converse with my blogging friends and eat enchiladas. I even had to alter my procedure for Six Words to get enough entries this month. Christmas break should change that.
Normally, I invite people by email after I’ve visited their blog – or answer email sent to me asking for the prompt.
This month, I read fewer blogs than I could eat enchiladas. So I sent out word by social media. The response was strong! Once a month, as you know, I ask strangers, friends, bloggers, and strange blogger friends to respond to a prompt in six words.
Ernest Hemingway inspired it when he said you could tell any story in six words.
The prompt this time: If you had to take one month off the calendar, which one would it be? Why? Unofficially, February took a beating. So what say you? Which month would you chop from the calendar?
1. August, because hundred degree summers suck.
