The prompt for this week is foreshadow. So far there are lots of incredible entries showing gathering clouds before the storm, this thoughtful one about growing up… and now, my take. I’ve actually got two, because why the heck not. First, the opening to the excellent children’s book Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. This foreshadows some of what is about to happen to lead character Sophie.
And second, my newest notebook (bought on Friday when I went into Paperchase for a birthday card…). This foreshadows a trip I’m taking to Canada and the US in October, for which I figured I’d need a beautiful notebook to write my adventures down in. Perhaps said adventures will be the foundation for another children’s book in the vein of Howl – so that makes this picture a double foreshadow! Or something.

Wonderful and creative choice for the challenge. That book has a beautiful softly entrancing effect….I’m drawn into it without noticing as I read! And I love your new note book. You are making me think I should go back and read some of mine….20 years worth of thought and adventure 🙂

You should, it’s a rewarding (and occasionally harrowing) experience.. 😉

I like the second, the blue journal. A writer and author, I journal often, keeping two at all times. The closed journal needs to be opened. The empty page calls to be filled. Thank you.

Thank you for stopping by! Why is it you keep two?

Three actually – one for me and the other two are chock full of letters to my children…volumes of letters. I write them everyday. And yes, I do see them everyday. One day, when I am gone, they’re each have a set of journals. They’ll each still be able to touch me and I them.
