Three Line Tales: The Window

This challenge is hosted by Sonya @ Only 100 Words – is a writer I thoroughly enjoy following! The idea? 3 lines about the picture, no matter how long or short, but only three lines! I linked up — why not take a whirl, it could be fun for you too!

The Window

Sleepily the sweet boy awakes, ready to embark on a day of adventure

Daddy has promised a day – just the two of them – playing ball, sailing, fun

“Rise and shine, the day’s begun, my sweet son.” Thank you, Daddy.



From Sonya, Week 10 Three Line Tales, Guidelines:

“Check the TLT page for the full guidelines, but here’s the gist:

  • Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt.
  • Link back to this post.
  • Tag your post with 3LineTales (so we can find you in the Reader).
  • Read and comment on other TLT participants’ lines.
  • Have fun.

Happy three-lining!”

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I struggle with short works and rewrote this several times, never really happy with the results. I wanted to be positive, but kept slipping into a dark place — which wasn’t what I was going for either. Your submission this week was much closer to the feeling I had when seeing the image. I think this is an image I could write a novel on! Thank you for your kind words and stopping by 🙂

      1. oh, I absolutely know what you are talking about. Thank you for your kond words 😊. But to be honest, I have a tendency to write darker stories when it comes to short works. So many times I wanted to write something positive and full of light, but somehow I ended up writing something more dark. That’s why I love how you created such a lovely and joyfull post 😊

      2. Indeed! When we have lesser words to write with we become very careful and observant! And we think about each word deeply with all its implications! Your final lines are full of optimism and positive vibes! 🙂 Nice!

      3. Thank you! One of the reasons I restarted my blog was to focus on fewer words, more precision, and clarity. Verbosity is not a problem, painting a clear image with correct emotion and intonation is what I’m crafting. I really appreciate your kind words 🙂
