Write at the Merge, Week 3

writing prompt Welcome back to Write at the Merge, our newly formatted prompt at Write on Edge. If you’re new to the prompt, we’ll offer two …somethings …for you to use as your inspiration for the week. The link will be open now through Thursday at midnight.

For this week, your inspiration comes from two words (you are not required to use these words, though you may):

Gossamer: noun; a fine, filmy substance consisting of cobwebs spun by small spiders, which is seen esp. in autumn.

Affinity: noun; ( pl. affinities ) (often affinity between/for/with) a spontaneous or natural liking or sympathy for someone or something: he has an affinity for the music of Berlioz.
