I was going to make taxes the topic for this weekend, since I’m sitting here drowning in statements and receipts, but I decided that could lead to a dicier conversation than I want on Story Weekend. So then I thought, what would be a non-controversial topic? And here it is: stationery. I don’t know about you, but that word immediately brings back memories of letters and thank you notes and dear friends and pretty paper with special watermarks. How about you? What story comes to you when you hear the word ‘stationery’?
If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve been contributing. As always, there are a few “rules”:
▪ The story must be true
▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.
