PROMPTuesday #100: WOW

March 30th, 2010

I admit it. I’ve given brief pause to retiring PROMPTuesday from my blog. What once used to be a joy and a challenge, has now turned into something “I must do” and that concerns me. But after careful reflection, I decided to be a tough old broad who hangs on until the last breath. You know why? Writing prompts are MEANT to be a challenge and sometimes, just sometimes, they are something “you must do” in order to break through creative barriers.


So we’re here to stay.


Plus, how could I send something packing that’s made it to 100?


For shame, San Diego Momma, for shame.


Here’s today’s prompt:

Leave some words of wisdom (WOW) in five words or less. Could be your life motto, your favorite song title you’ve adopted as a mantra, your fondest cautionary tale (e.g. Look both ways!). If you care to expand on your WOW, please post in your blog and leave a link in comments.




Stay open.


Once more — Please post your submission in the comments OR post in your blog and leave a link to your blog in the comments.

“Never be afraid of saying no”

(versus saying yes… I hate missing out on opportunities, but lately am enjoying the freedom of no. And my mom, as fantastic as she is always told me to say no on dates if I didn’t want to go. Timesaver)
