Ahh, No…

Your twice-divorced co-worker, mid forties, former model,
– Three children with first hubby,
– Two rescue dogs with number two…

“Sure, try something new,” I answer.

“You’re right, “she said, “My new boyfriend, he’s twenty-five.”

That wasn’t what I meant.

Inspiration: Trifecta – the challenge, to write 33 words and then tag on the five last words: “That wasn’t what I meant.”

So, 33 words + the five = 38 grand total.

Step Back Into Time

What if, say a hundred years from now, a child’s field trip goes something like this Trifecta Writing: 33 words Photo Prompt Challenge

Step back into time…a rare exhibit. Student with primitive study tools: textbooks and highlighter marker. Note the obsolete coffeehouse, Starbucks, and no e-books.

The First Time I Saw…

The first time I saw the cruel, cold eyes at the door, I knew. The Wolves would force their vise of fear to bring locks and chains to debts owed. No words, just one brute shove, a street slave.

“Mom, please come visit David and I, we’re all settled,” said Angela.

To cover her depression with encouraging, loving words, mother said, “Yeah, whatever…I mean, of course, I will, Honey.

“What’s wrong, Mom?”

Shine On Courageously

Because there will be moments when days seem so dark,
shine on courageously
Because fear will come along and dim those creative lights,
shine on courageously
Because real light is sometimes hard to find,
shine on courageously
Because new beginnings happen,
shine on courageously

shine on, 2014, resolution, life, new year, writing

Three word resolution inspired by Trifecta – my first link up. 

Update: A special post by Katie Kurtz from e.g. a writing blog who wonderfully collected all the Trifecta three word resolution for 2014. Enjoy!
