I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. You had your up before I had even seen the prompt. I like the image of the badgers dark galleries. (More eeriness–this relates to a prompt I’m thinking of for dVerse for next week.) 🙂

    1. There was a dead badger in the ditch by the side of the lane yesterday. Hard to believe it was hit by a car as there’s no traffic on the lane at night and cars go slowly because it’s very narrow and winding.

      1. I’m so pleased you think so too. I tend to judge people by whether they have lawns or a garden. If it’s a bit of green to set off the trees and flowers, fair enough, but when it replaces nature, drinks buckets of herbicide and pesticide, I say there’s something gone wrong somewhere.
