neworleanstrolleyHow would you respond to the Drash Pit prompt Corpses I Have Known?

I remembered an exchange in the New Orleans airport. I haven’t written prose in awhile and am excited to see that writing poetry has made me better at prose. Yay!

    Good one, Pam. When someone can talk about a personal experience with death with a degree of poignancy, as Linda pointed out, yet w/o overt sentimentality, and find humor in the experience w/o being flippant, I’m impressed!

    That’s a well-written vignette, Pamela. It has it all: drama, color, poignancy, and humor. Thanks for sharing.

    • Thank you!

      One technique I’ve been working to learn is how to move back and forth in time. I think I’m moving in the right direction in this piece.

      As well as everything else, too. :-)
