The original Words for Wednesday was begun by Delores and eventually taken over by a moveable feast of participants when Delores had computer troubles. Sadly, Delores has now closed her blog forever due to other problems.
The aim of the words is to encourage us to write. A story, a poem, whatever comes to mind.
If you are posting an entry on your own blog, please let us know so we can come along to read it and add a few encouraging words.
This month the words/prompts are supplied by ME and can be found right here
This week's words/prompts are: a single sentence:
" with that single statement, he steamrollered my happiness right into the ground"
here is my story:
I burst through the door, so full of giddy excitement I thought I would explode. Daddy was visiting today and here was my chance to show him just how well I had been doing in school. I skidded to a stop in the kitchen and there he was, the same stern, forbidding face I remembered. Knowing he didn't like to be suddenly hugged by surprise, I walked over, holding out my test paper with the gold star on the top corner. "Look Daddy. I got a 98%, the highest mark in the whole class!"
He glanced at the paper then looked at me. "only 98%? Where did you go wrong?"
With that single statement, he steamrollered my happiness right into the ground.
I shuffled off to my room to change my clothes. I knew we would all go out for pizza, as we always did when he came to visit, but I wouldn't enjoy it this time. I made up my mind to ask him not to visit me anymore. His new wife didn't like me anyway.
