I’m late; I’m late! It’s been a very busy week with a few big writing projects (on Huff Post, a piece about Honey Boo Boo and the welfare of children, and a piece for Mothers Day). I was also hesitant to post, because I knew I’d have guests from overseas here, and very limited time starting on Friday. I’ll do my best, but can’t promise to make all the rounds. Regardless, wishing a warm and happy Mother’s Day to all you writers who are moms in one way or another.
Giant congratulations to our fearless and tireless leader, Rochell Wisoff-Fields on the release of her book Please Say Kaddish For Me! So exciting! If you’d like to join this amazing group of writers, from all over the world, check out the details on Rochelle’s Blog, Addicted to Purple. This week’s photo prompt comes from Madison Woods.
This week, I sought to emulate in some small way, the fun and wit that Perry and Russell bring to this each week. Tough shoes to fill! The minute I saw the photo on Wed, I knew where I wanted to go, it was just a matter of finding the time! As always, I welcome honest feedback that is honest or constructive. Please leave a comment.
When Words Fail
“Water, water everywhere and not a sip to drink– is that it?”
“No. Something about water, but not that.”
“You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make him drink? Is that the one, Janie?”
“Nope. It was about drinking, but not horses. Come on Meg!”
“Good grief! It’s your saying, not mine. What’s it about again?”
“David! It’s about that guy I met the other night. He’s over there, by the bar–“
“Well, I’ll tell you one thing: that man is a tall, cool glass of water, on a hot day!”
