Prompt for Week #50 (Aug 8, 2020 – Aug 14, 2020): Gratitude
First off, I’m grateful that my internet issues this morning were indeed just a blip and are now resolved. 🙂 And now for my mini-tale response:
“Grateful? Sure I am. But still…”
This was inspired by a wise friend who told me years ago that when you’re making an apology or discussing something, as soon as you say the word “But,” you’re going in the opposite direction.
Just think how many long-winded arguments start out with…
“I do agree with you, but…”
The Ragtag prompt today, IMAGE, is easy enough for me to respond to, as I often use images for my blog posts. In my youth we called them pictures but times have changed and so must I.
As readers here will have seen, I’m fond of making “posters” to use as inspirational blog posts. I pick an image from Pixabay, like this one by Daniel Roberts, pull it up on Paint 3D, choose a font, type in a verse like this haiku — and there you are!
The theme is SURPRISE.
The story word limit is 6 words (words, NOT characters!). No more and no less. It’s not necessary to use the prompt word. However, the story should be relevant to the prompt.
So here’s my response:
The prompt has gotten various responses so far, as you’ll see at Shweta”s blog. Keith, over at Keith’s ramblings, has posted his tiny tale here …and leaves us all to wonder/imagine what the question was. 😉
