This week, random.org “assigned” me Mama Kat prompt number five: Your top ten Fall Fashion Favorites. BUT I am not writing to that prompt. I am out of town for a conference so I needed a prompt that did not involve a lot of pictures (and my clothes situation is so dismal right now that I can barely think of ten things to write about). I was pretty captivated, anyway, by prompt number two, the “Where I’m From” poem. The template for the poem can be found here (or at the bottom of this post)
Here’s the template:
