JOELLE’S TALES: March REMINDER
TELL ME A TALE IN 120 WORDS
I’m offering one more week left to participate in the March #TMAT120!
I publish links to all entries so that others will be led to your post.
Welcome to March 2
Today’s prompt is: The finest moment of your life
So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, here’s the story of my finest moment:
The birth of my children, receiving a bachelor’s degree at 36 and watching both my children graduate from college; those are some of life’s finest moments.
My B.S. degree helped me find the job I was meant to do, but social work is a labor of love, not a financial windfall. Then, both my children met the loves of their lives and settled into the nuclear family bubble.
My finest moment?
Three years ago I skimmed through the first paperback copy of my book. My eyes welled with joy the moment I mumbled, “I wrote this.”
I sat at my desk, clutching my book as I cried: For that day I knew without a single doubt I was a writer.
Here are the rules:
A prompt for #TMAT120 will be given the first Thursday of every month. The prompt challenge begins whenever it’s that day in your time zone. For example: 12:01am to 11:59pm March 2nd. It ends on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
I will list the links to all participants on the 2nd Thursday of the month so that others will be led to your blog. ☺
Limit your #TMAT120 post to 120 words. People who participate in limited-word prompts aren’t expecting a 1,000 word explanation before it begins.
Include the picture above to show that you are participating in the #TMAT120. Please don’t alter (except for size).
Please don’t use hard-core curse words. Only lazy writers use variations of the F word for shock “value.”
Copy and paste the URL in the reply section below, or you can do a pingback if you have a WordPress blog.
Take time to read other people’s posts, after all it’s only 120 words. And you might make a new friend.
