NaPoWriMo Day 8, 2022

Today’s prompt “comes to us from this list of “all-time favorite writing prompts.” It asks you to name your alter-ego, and then describe him/her in detail. Then write in your alter-ego’s voice. Maybe your alter-ego is a streetwise detective, or a superhero, or a very small goldfinch. Whoever or whatever your alternate self may be, I hope this prompt lets you stretch both your writing skills and your self-knowledge.” (Full NaPoWriMo post available here.)

I’ve written about the shadow self before (including, very recently, here), but never from the point of view of a hermit crab. The many months (years?) of hermitage had to show on the page one way or another.

PS–The posted draft has expired, but here are some photos of Munich taken this April (2022).
