Become the archaeologist of your own soul, buried under shifting but deep sands. Break out your shovel and whisk broom and start the dig. Your past is something preserved, in tact, and I am asking you to unearth it.
I want you to imagine that you have had a recent encounter with your first love. What do you say? What do you feel? What has changed? And the most vexing question: what if? 500 words. Maybe that first love was the Ford Mustang, re-discovered in a used car lot when you came home one summer to see the folks. Maybe it was that rescue puppy from the pound, whose own soul had re-entered the pup you got the kids for Christmas? Maybe it was the woman you could never live without, or the man you could live without? You can do this. Contest ends the Ides of March. Please share this on FB to help us get a wide variety of new writers to join the fold .
The desert wind is picking up, and the sands are shifting. Start digging!
Here is the link with submission details.
ps: Anyone notice the two Satikushes in this picture? (to the uninitiated, the Satikushes are the cats who guard the Towers that are A Word with You Press.)

Question: the last guy I loved wasn’t my ex. Can I still write about him? Because I don’t have a lot to say to my ex that wasn’t already said.
Stef: Of course! Get even, or, better still, get over it. A chance for vengeance or healing? Your pick.
When I saw him last, I don’t think I could have cared less. My healing was my vengeance.
Then, there’s Seyfert. One never knows what’s going to happen in his world. However, he did tell me a story from his early college years which fits into your contest theme.
I thought he was home-schooled? College?
No. He went to what we would call public schools and universities all on MoxAT-TAxoM.
was it co-ed? How many genders did it serve on that planet?
Co-ed. Two. Nothing unusual.
Confessions take so much out of me, but I’ll sit under the lights and tell all about that first love of mine.
It’s no mystery to any of us Sal. Everyone knows your first love was the use of the English language!
I have written a poem for my lost love on Valentine’s Day. Is a poem acceptable for admission to this contest or is it for short tories?
This is awesome this will be a challenge for me because I usually write no more than 100-200 words.
This will be a challenge that I must take.
Am here to give special thanks to this great and real spell caster called Dr Garuba.
