This one comes with the time of year. January is the month of the keeper of gates as the year turns yet again. Janus, the god of the month, is, as we all know well, a two-faced deity.
So, could we please have a work of whatever length you wish and in whatever genre you choose on the theme of looking forward or looking back?
A while since we’ve had prescribed words and you can thank Mrs M for these ones. She was having a girls’ liquid lunch today and I interrupted the three of them and the two bottles of Chardonnay involved to ask for such words. They are:-
‘party’, ‘permanent’ and ‘accident’.
Not essential if you choose not to work them into your effort but I have to warn you that I will give serious weight to their creative use in the event of a tie.
The deadline is 12 midnight GMT on 31st January 2011.
