He sings how, on an evening,
Beneath the birch-trees cool,
He sate and play'd his harp of gold,
Beside the river-pool.

Pardon me for being stupid, but what does that mean? I never even heard of that saying before. Embarassed

It's a play on the movie/series title "state of play," 'sate' meaning satisfied or full.

I thought it was funny and titilating. Maybe not.

Oh, and so Viv made a play on my play with Sate being an archaic past tense of 'sat'.

Oh, Okay. Thanks. Razz

Maybe I can actually write something...been too busy with my martial arts training these days, and I wouldn't mind taking a break and write something. Shocked

"It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door ..." This week, I invite you to take your characters (and readers) on a journey to a moment of change. Go ahead - over the threshold, through the mirror, the wardrobe, or that little door under the stairs you just never noticed before but watch out - that first step can be a doozy!

Drabbles must be 100, 200, or 300 words. Challenge opens Monday, October 4th, and closes Monday, October 18, 2010.

Challenges will be posted every TWO WEEKS, and participants will have two weeks to complete the challenge. To contribute a drabble challenge idea, visit the OSA Drabble Challenges thread in the Bunny Nursery of the Forum. Any problems or questions? Contact the challenge admins.

Sleeping or waking what are your characters’

Dreams?

Are they unconscious nighttime nonsense? fantasies? or ambitious guides leading toward the future? Tell us, what do they dream of?

Nightmares need not apply (this time).
