A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise.
Thank you for the challenge, Sammi.
Remember Father Knows Best and Leave it to Beaver? I dreamed I would one day marry the perfect man. We’d live in a charming house with a flower garden and a white picket fence. Our children would be well-behaved and talented.
Nearly fifty years and three sons later, I reflect. Did I marry Ward Cleaver? Nope. Nor did he marry June. Real life turned out to be a messy proposition. There were good times and not-so-good times. One idyll after another teetered and fell.
