I’m Off To The Land Of The Ice And Snow

Day 18 of  30 Days of Writing sure does come quickly when you don’t write for days on end.  See, I’ve been slaving away trying to finish all my work as well as a course for my job. It’s bad enough being trapped in an office during the summer, but when your free time is also consumed by work related school work, well, it ain’t much fun.  Plus the material is really dry too. Like Sahara Desert dry.

Thankfully, I can officially declare that my company has released the shackles and they’re letting me run away for a few days. Good thing too, since today’s prompt is “Setting sail” and that’s exactly what I’m doing.

So by the time you read this, I’ll be packing a bag and getting on an airship for Malmo, Sweden to visit one of my oldest buddies, for 10 days.

There may not be any snow there this time of year, but I hear that the days are pretty long.

  • You can blame Nicky for the fact this really bad poem is coming your way.  She started this poetry theme this morning and she now has me thinking in rhyme.  It’s all her fault.

    Have a great time in Sweden.  Does this mean you are off the hook for the rest of the challenge.  What some people won’t do to get out of things.

    And I know, right? Planning a trip is a pretty elaborate way to get out of some responsibilities. I’m going to “try” and write while I’m there. No promises, but I’ve got some ideas 🙂
