WELCOME TO

Hello guys! I am PennedinWhite, and I will be heading up some fun times and prompts from here on out (with the help of MagicalJoey). We would like to jump start the group again, and with that – a bit of a challenge for February. If you aren’t all familiar with Special Holiday Fun, we are going to introduce you in the best way possible. Each month will feature a Special Holiday prompt for you guys to gain inspiration from and give us something wonderful!

ALSO! We shall be doing some weekly prompts for you as well. These are generally going to be photo or phrase prompts, and will vary in word counts to mix up the challenge. These will be posted every week, from Sunday through Saturday. Everyone who enters this challenge will get a week long feature by the group, so we hope the incentive is high enough for you guys to really participate! Let’s see what you got!!

This month is "Library Lover's Month" and so, without further ado, let's write about libraries and books. What I'm looking for are library stories that can be fiction, fact or a mixture of both. Any genre. Word limit 1500 words.

Your Weekly Challenge Prompt will be an "umbrella" challenge in honor of 'umbrella day' on February 19th. Your masterpiece can be anything related to umbrellas. No more than 900 words, come up with the best piece you can! We look forward to reading! :heart:

:bulletred: A Soup Story“Dad?”
“Annie...err...it's...do you...I...“ He was standing in the kitchen, his eyes fixed on a small book. Onion, it said, in his wife's elegant handwriting. He had been standing there for over an hour, reading the lines again and again, before deciding to call his daughter. Onion, potatoes, sweet pepper, carrots, ginger... All ingredients neatly written down with great care, but no hint on how much or what to do with them whatsoever.
“Is something wrong with Mom? Is she alright?” Annie asked, breaking the silence with a distressed, high-pitched voice.
“She's fine, I mean, she obviously is not, she's in the hospital...”
“I know that. Did they call you? Did anything happen?”
“No, no, it's not about Mom, well it is, but no...she can't walk, what could possibly happen?” he asked absent-minded, sunken back into the enigma of his wife's recipe book. Vegetable broth, coconut milk, red lentils

Sisyphus    I rise before the sun, the shrill calls of manufactured birds and artificial serenity imposing their jarring reality onto my subconscious mind. A new day begins; a new year, a new lease on life, and it is mine. A kiss stirs my love, and we smile, savoring the precious moments spouses can share. Precious indeed, as, all too soon, our day must start; showers and shaves, breakfasts cooked, children woken. Packing our lunches, our homework, briefcases and purses, we gobble food as we go, our barbarism justified, our moral objections unheeded. Those objections bear a weight, and my soul carries the burden, even as I feign jolliness, ushering my children off to school with hugs, parting from my wife with a kiss. Silently exhaling, starting my car, I am alone, I can think. And in my consciousness, I grow terrified; in the quiet, in the calm, I can hear myself shrieking.
    The drive to work is typical; caffeine ingested, talk radio serving a futile attempt a

GalateaThe raging storm outside had darkened the sky and turned the late afternoon into the final night of the apocalypse. Rain hammered against the window and it was a mere miracle that the glass didn't break. Watery light from the lanterns left outside to ward off the darkness could be seen through the blinds of room almost unaffected by the end of the world going on outside.
In the twilight inside, a single cigarette burned in an ashtray, the smoke raising in a straight line before dissolving into a cloud and finally fading away. A hand reached for it and seconds later, the silent sound of burning paper and tobacco joined the strangely distant noises of the storm. A man took a deep breath, which drowned out all the other sounds in the silent room. The smoker sat on the edge of a bed and holding the cigarette loosely in his hand, he turned his head around to face the person lying outstretched on the sheets behind him. It was a woman, posing as an Y turned upside down. Of course, it had not

As Terry Pratchett's Death would say in this sort of situation where one receives the chance to have their work added to a gallery and read while pondering several ways to express gratefulness , death having no feelings except thinking cats are nice when he is not reaping souls thanks to the assassin's guild and wayward wizards, he would state the following phrase "thank you for the fave" . After a short pause he would wonder if that was the correct thing to say and would vanish. so Thanks! yeah XDDDDDDDDDD

I think they are up for free on sacredtexts or on pdf or kindle, but having the book is better.
Im up to book 10. I loved the movies staring Christopher lee as Death ( I cant read Pratchett's Death lines
without doing Lee's deep booming voice XD ). Death says the only thing he likes and or
desires having no emotions like we do is cats, Terry Pratchett wrote a book about Cat anectdotes and
also a whole Discoworld book on cats AND a co written novel with Neil Gaiman about the end of the world
and Death is in it. atm u can see Wyrd Sisters, the color of magic, music of the soul, hog father and
one starring Samwise aka The goonies kid as "the Tourist", Death cameos in each one, Hog father being a 4 part movie series
f you wanna give it a go then pick up a book on a free day. I could never touch Pratchett's funny in a million years!!!!

Yes checking, I'm always worried I'll join a dead group where I'm the only active user. I like to make sure ahead of time that people are still hanging around...
