Isn’t it though? The title of this post is an homage to Jonathan Coulton’s song ‘Summer’s Over‘, about things (or in his case, Things) ending because they have to. As Valentine’s Day was ending in my time zone, I recorded a video of my poem about love ending because it has to. It’s Love Letters, from my own Thing a Week. This poem also serves as a mnemonic, should you ever forget the alphabet.
I also added a stanza to Chemistry, a funnier love poem, so that I could participate in the Valentine’s Day challenge over at Fictionaut. Here’s the revised version. I would have liked to record a video of that one, but I didn’t have all the props I needed. Perhaps another time.

Thanks. 🙂 My initial Thing a Week project actually finished, and went pretty well; I wrote a lot of things I liked that I never would have written otherwise, which was the goal (my job is too awesome to quit, so becoming an internet superstar like Jonathan Coulton did was not really on the menu.) Now I’m supposedly in the middle of a six-month Thing a Week with more relaxed rules, but the rules relaxed more than they should have and my new job, and the fact that I’m trying to sleep enough to do it properly, leaves me with less time so it’s sort of more of a Thing a Fortnight. But still, there are Things, and time passes.
