100 Word Challenge – inspiration is the word skinny


100 Word Challenge – skinny is the word

I can’t use skinny to describe myself anymore. Skinny hasn’t defined me since I had my first baby. After that first birth, I just kept adding more weight on. Now my last baby was 32 years ago, and I am still gaining weight.

Said child came to see his mother this weekend. He moved several states away and has adopted the vagabond lifestyle. I am glad he came to see his friends and me too.

They have decided to go camping for two of the nights he’s here. He spent the first night with me. He’s leaving on Monday sometime.

*****100 words*****

Tara’s Rules

1) I provide a one-word prompt.
2) Write anything you want using that prompt, either as inspiration or as part of your 100 Words. (That means you don’t have to actually use the prompt word, it can be implied.)
3) Your story has to be EXACTLY 100 words (because someone will ask, hyphenated words count as a single word.) This is the one rule I will be a stickler about.
4) Submit your story here as a comment, as a Facebook status, or as a blog post. (Add the specific FB status or post’s URL to the Mr. Linky list just under the prompt.)
5) If you write a blog post, please link back to this post. It makes it easier for me and the other Wordsters to find you.
6) You have one week to write your story and link up (The link stays open, so you can really submit stories whenever… this is the one rule I don’t really enforce.)

One-Liner Wednesday – (7/10/19) – Second Week of NANOWRIMO writing


One-Liner Wednesday – (7/10/19) – Second Week of NANOWRIMO writing

*********************

This is the second week of NANOWRIMO (National Novel Writing Month) and I have written at least 20,000 words on my very first book I might actually finish over my lifetime.

**********************

Rules from Linda G Hill:

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!
