3-Word Resolution

Intentions carried forward


TrifectaPicture11-1This week I’m trying my hand at Trifecta’s writing prompt:

Michael Hess inspired us with his three word New Year’s resolution – just be nice.  We’re asking for your own resolutions in just three words.  Make it count; we’ll be checking back in come 2015.

The Trifecta challenge is open to all.  If you want to submit your own response, click on the Tricycle image to check out the challenge and submit your link.


During the past year, I’ve come to understand the power of intention in place of resolution and willpower. In this new year, I will focus my attention on my selected intentions and on making a contingency plan for persevering when life interferes. Thanks to http://farthertogo.com, I’ve discovered this powerful combination that inspired my 3-word resolution.

502 days to 60.

Not Just Another Day (Trifecta Weekend Challenge)

It is the first day of November and so, today, someone must die.

It happens every year, but today I couldn’t touch my breakfast. Mitch sat across from me–coffee in hand, nose buried in the newspaper. Clearly, he wasn’t concerned. Why was he ignoring me?

This is my first time doing a Trifecta Challenge. I’ve thought about it for a while, but this time, I actually did it. The prompt for this weekend’s challenge is below.

In The Scorpio Races, author Maggie Stiefvater writes, “It is the first day of November and so, today,
someone will die.”  Give us the next thirty-three words of this story, as you imagine it.  Take it wherever you like, but make it original and make it 33 words exactly.
