Wind-Up Week 74: 100 Word Wednesday


Image by Bikurgurl

Thanks for stopping by for Week 74 of 100 Word Wednesdays!

I’m out traveling the Midwest of the United States and have had much more time to read and enjoy your work this week!

Pictured is the street I grew up on as a child. My story this week, The Sidewalk, is my 100 words about this street. As some of you remember, my first, childhood best friend, Kim, passed away last year. She and I were the same age – I survived cancer, she did not.

If you haven’t connected with me on Instagram, please do! There you can see where I’ve been, where I’m going, and all the other bits of our eclectic, unschooly, traveling-with-children family lives I share!

As Always: Thank you all for being here ❤

Miss this week? No worries: ping back anytime and I’ll do my best to add you to this post. I post a new image prompt every Wednesday!

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use – Links provided!
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I’ll try to read them all, but I can’t post your submission in the Weekly Wind-Up if you haven’t posted before the end of the weekend but I’ll do my best to catch ’em all!
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions 🙂

  1. “Pictured is the street I grew up on as a child.” Oh dear. I hope my “Ticky-Tacky” post didn’t offend you. It looks like a lovely suburban neighborhood, much like the one I grew up in.

    1. You are too kind! I never post images for prompts I would be upset about the content {which is why you’ll never see my family in the images!!} — but thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and kind words!!

      What I love about the prompts is the variety of responses — how individual writers can see the same image and find completely different stories.

      And for what its worth, I have fond memories of my childhood, but it could have been anywhere — it’s a family that makes a home ❤

      Thank you so much for participating and I look forward to seeing your response to our prompt posting in a few hours! I'm scheduling them to post at 12am PST 😉

      1. I usually am {unless I’m reading!!}; I schedule the posts out weeks ahead to avoid ‘forgetting’. I’ve also noticed that my regularity has also helped our writing community to be able to rely on me to be prompt with the prompts.

        It’s not that I don’t take blogging seriously, but I do have a seemingly endless list of tasks I take on. Having others rely on me has been the best thing to be more regular about my own commitment to myself and my writing — the reason I started the blog and the weekly challenges!

        Thank you again for your generosity in commenting and I look forward to see if the next image inspires you 🙂

    1. What a solace to have had him keep in touch! Kim was my best childhood friend; her sister and I keep in touch through the miles through social media – just a touchstone for each other. Thank you for your kind words 💖

      1. MOH has been more than a friend to us, he’s family. He was the only one to stand by us and give us support when we were down on our luck. We are glad to know him and have him as our friend, and he knows that should he need us, we will be there for him too.
