JOELLE’S TALES: FIRST THURSDAY OF THE MONTH #TMAT120 #WRITING #PROMPT FOR 9/1/2019
It’s not like I’m asking you to fly through a hurricane.
TELL ME A TALE IN (EXACTLY) 120 WORDS
Welcome to SEPTEMBER 1!
Today’s prompt is: What are the worst weather conditions you’ve ever endured?
So that you don’t feel so alone in your embarrassment, I’ll share a vignette with you:
Being inland in Florida, we rarely experience hurricanes. Tropical storm Frances stayed over us for several days. When your house is secured, the howling wind no longer frightens you after the first few hours.
My worst experience revolved around cold weather. I moved from Florida to Minnesota when my new husband was offered a job there.
We moved to St. Paul in mid-October. I was freezing in my knee length coat. Around me were businessmen in short sleeves acting as if it were 85 degrees out. There, I learned how frightening it was to drive in a blizzard. My eyes strained to see through sheets of snow. I followed car tracks on the freeway, thankful I took the correct exit.
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. It ends on the 1st Thursday of the next month.
Copy and paste your 120 word entry into the reply section below, along with a link to your blog. To me, everyone who enters is a winner, but if you must have a winner, the entry with the most likes wins.
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.
When/if you publish your entry on your blog, use the #TMAT120 picture to show that you are participating in the prompt. Please don’t alter (except for size).
Please don’t use hard-core curse words. They’ll be edited out if you do, and you might not like the words I choose to replace them with. 🙂
Take time to read other people’s #TMAT120 & their posts, after all you might make a new friend.
