…Maybe Not. #1LinerWeds

I was talking to a friend about a couple we know who were going on vacation. Between her uncertainty about the unusual word she was using and my poor hearing, here’s what I thought she said:

They’re going camping, and they’re staying in a urine.

They’re staying in a yurt.

A WRITING PROMPT FROM ME TO YOU: A vacation staying in an unusual (to a given culture) structure.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    It’s okay. How can you use your auditory and visual clues if ‘yurt’ isn’t your idea of a camping tent?

    You did fine. Clarification or repetition is important.

      I’ve seen some high-end latrines on television that look big enough to camp in!
