I’m sorry for missing a couple of Story Weekends, but my web designer and I have been busy re-creating an all new site. It was time, especially with the upcoming September publication of Necessary Lies. Please take some time to wander around the site and do let me know if something isn’t working the way it should. So many little bits and pieces to a site this big!
When I click on the site now, I get a little jolt. I’m so used to looking at the old site with the ancient folded-arms picture of me and the sea oats and red sky in the background. I loved that site, but I was ready for the clean, contemporary look of something new. I’m embracing the change!
And that brings me to the topic of this Story Weekend. Change. What do you think of when you hear that word? Is it the time your mother told the teenage you that you’d better change or find another place to live? Is it your divorce after twenty years, when you had to create a whole new life for yourself? Is it a move to a new city? A new career? Or just that jingly stuff in the bottom of your purse? Whatever Change means to you, we’d like to hear the story!
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. Happy writing!
