The above shows how it began. After the doctor’s visit and the release from the hospital, I returned home with the optimistic prediction that I would probably have to spend no more than one year horizontal and on a special diet. “What about school?” a question brushed aside by parents who had not considered formal schooling of much value anyway. So there were books to read. Brothers and sisters would borrow from the school library and keep me well-supplied. As I began to read faster, they complained about the increasing weight, espesciallywhen I requested specific titles. I had to admit requesting The Count of Monte Cristo and The Shining at the same time was probably pushing it but I had more than one sibling so they learned about sharing the load. Everything is a learning experience. Eventually, one of my sisters gave up in disgust and bought me the book shown above. The announcement was direct ,”Write your own book. We quit!”

And so it began.

And here is how it ends.

Twittering Tales

About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale. This is important as I have noticed that some of the ping backs have not been working. If you would prefer to post your tale in the comments (some people have very specific blog themes but still want to participate), I am happy to post a link to your site when I post your tale in the Round Up.

I will do a roundup each Tuesday, along with providing a new prompt. And if for some reason I missed your entry in the Roundup, as I have occasionally done, please let me know. I want to be sure to include your tale.

“Tomorrow afternoon, it’s tea with the ladies,” he smirked, “they’re going to love my savory finger sandwiches.”

My Story:

Here was a life lived well. Pen names over multiple genres were an excellent disguise. Advice, storytelling, flights of fancy, and explorations of dark thoughts best kept hidden and played out only in the mind, all collected here. As a retired journalist, it’s time to write -30-
