Three Line Tales: Waiting

This challenge is hosted by Sonya @ Only 100 Words –  The idea? 3 lines about the picture, no matter how long or short, but only three lines!

Pensively, I await arrival

Linen unpressed, flowers hastily arranged in waterless vases

Of the family I left far too soon



I linked up — why not take a whirl, it could be fun for you too!

From Sonya, Week 50 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.
  • If you want your post to be included in the round-up, you have until Sunday evening to publish it.
  • Have fun.

Happy three-lining!”

    1. Ha Ha! I was thinking about your submission when I wrote this….I was trying to insinuate the speaker was dead, but I can see that didn’t come across with my words 😉 Ah, another week, another try — thank you kindly for stopping by!


      1. Ha Ha 😉 I have worked on being more concise and ambiguous in this past year — this year my focus is on more details in my 1o0 Word Wednesdays to flesh out those intricacies. What a nice compliment you already created an entirely different backstory! Thank you 🙂


      2. I couldn’t agree more! Being surrounded by other writers, storytellers, who are passionate make me more passionate about my own writing! I’m so happy – and feel fortunate – to have found this community of writers 🙂


      3. Touche! I think that’s why I keep putting off my hard core edits…the idea of publishing is so daunting! On my goal list this year: explore publishing possibilities 😉


      4. I’m not sure, to be honest. I know some writers post by chapter on their blogs, then once they find a following, find success in publishing books. I have no desire to be uber famous writer, but to have work I love that feeds my creative spirit and perhaps provides for my future…that is exciting!


      1. Yay! I’d started doing some 100 word posts last year after starting to follow Sonya’s blog, Only 100 Words, and was thrilled with the challenge to collect my thoughts into a cohesive, concise package. I’d hoped to do them weekly, but quickly fell off. By hosting the challenge, I have already started planning — and writing — weeks ahead of the challenge. Thank you for helping me meet my goals — and I look forward to your submission!

      2. It is quite an enjoyable challenge! 🙂 When writing poetry, it’s easier for me to do 100 words; if I write a short story, it typically goes into the 1,000+ word range. 😂
        That’s great! I’m glad that hosting the challenge motivated you to write more. 😀 Thank you; and I can’t wait to read yours. 🙂
