Please note: writercize (a portmanteau of write and exercise with a z for ... a twist? fun? street cred?) is participating in the A to Z Challenge through the month of April with alphabetical writing prompts. I'm skipping the stories behind the prompts so you can spend more time practicing and less time reading! Please participate, and enjoy!
writercize: Challenge yourself to a little creative flash fiction or poetry. Throw out the traditional concept of beginning, middle and end and merge beginning with end. How?
Begin and end a sentence, paragraph, short story or poem with the same word.
Hence, the boomerang - send out a single word and bring it back to round out the story or poem.
love reading your comments and especially your writercize results, so
please, drop me a line to let me know if this worked for you! Better
yet, share it with the world.

writercizer sample response:
full, bright, inanimate rock.
rife with personality-laden craters
that smile down
and wink at all earth's creatures.
giver of life,
slim, crescent sliver
on a dark, quiet night.
mysterious and hidden from sight.
blanketed in shadows.
leaving little more than a
memory of your full, round body
and sly promise of imminent return.
muse of poets,
painters and lovers.
master of water,
flora and fauna.
keeper of secrets,
desires and wishes.
