CCC60: The Nithings

Crimson’s Creative Challenge #60

Nay, lad, now don’t you call out too loud,
You’ll scare away the Nithings who live down by that drain.
Aye, lad, you don’t want to scare the Nithings.

But what are the Nithings? I hear you ask.
Why, lad, they be nothing but the darkest of happenstance.

Why begin the New Year with Sense and Sensibility… I’ll leave that to Jane Austen. Instead I’ll begin the New Year with Jest and Frivolity.

    • Even though I’m the one to select the photos, I never know what I’m going to write… until within an hour or so of when I write it. I find doing the washing up is good for inspiration, and walking to the shops (not back again, cos then I’m loaded with groceries.) 🙂
