Three Things Challenge: PL64


Three Things Challenge: PL64

Rules from originator:

Welcome to the Three Things Challenge. Every day at 10PM (PST) I will post three seemingly unconnected things that will, hopefully, ignite your muse. You don’t have to use all three things if you don’t want to. There are no restrictions on length, style, genre, or anything. Simply read the prompt, see where your muse takes you, and bring us along for the ride. Use 3TC as a tag if you’d like and link back to this prompt, or post your link in the comments below so others can find you.

Happy Writing! 😀

Today’s prompt: kiss, boulder, yellow

The Walk

By Teresa Smeigh 2019

Milly was wearing her new yellow sundress for the walk with Ronny. She wanted to impress him.

They were walking in the city park and off to the side was a huge boulder. As they approached it Milly was disappointed that Ronny hadn’t made a move on her yet.

Suddenly Ronny pulled Milly behind the boulder and planted a kiss on her lips and then brought her back out to the path. Milly was disappointed as she had wanted more from him, but then behind the boulder in the city park wasn’t really that private for anything more than a kiss.

Memoir Emerging


I am really surprised that I have been able to stay focused on learning how to write memoir while starting to write as well. I have already written many non-fiction pieces and so the bones are there, it is a matter of embellishing them enough to either be a chapter on their own or find similar stories that can be combined into a chapter and in some cases breaking them down into separate chapters. The more I write, the more I remember.

It is hard picking a specific time of life and basing it on that period of time with some flashbacks or glimpses into the future. I don’t want it to be a book of non-stop complaining about the cards life dealt me and some things other people might take exception to finding themselves portrayed in a bad way. And I wouldn’t blame them.

I still don’t know if I will ever get to the point of publishing it or not, but it is a good project for the family at least. And it will be the answer to the pull to write a book most people have. I am, even if it doesn’t make it to publication, I am writing one.

All this writing has been cutting into my reading time for the book group. I didn’t finish my last one I was supposed to read as I was reading research books on writing memoir and writing memoir as well as still doing the prompt writing.

And we can’t forget the extra sleep I have been doing instead of reading or writing. I am fighting some depression some and that means I will take to my bed and try to forget the world and fall asleep.

Now that I am in two writing groups I have certain writing I must do for that. Some are reworked pieces from the blog. I am still revamping my blogs too, just another project to keep me busy and to recycle pieces for the 2 writing groups. Plus some pieces I just don’t like. They were my first pieces or prompt writing that didn’t quite make the grade for me as my writing improves with time.
