Recently, I heard that "writing prompts are all nonsense" and that you should only write with intent. What do you think about that?

Hello Everyone!  I have had an amazing time writing for these writing sites:  Scriptic Collective, / Trifecta, , and once for The Lightning Bug, .  I still have to explore, and make time, for 100 words, as well as for the Lightning Bug and for this group!    Many of the writers on the latter sites are also connected and on each others' sites, and are all VERY nice and supportive!  Happy Writing all!

Colin? Is that you? I have not seen you in how many years? Never mind. Yes I remember. We were 6 years old. When the teacher took us outside for story time she waited until we were settled next to each other, cross legged on the grass, holding hands, before she began reading.

You were always so tanned, like the other Aussie kids. Your hair was bleached blonde by the Australian sun. And you had freckles. You were my special friend. I don’t think our parents ever knew. Did not seem much point in telling them really. We never kissed, not even in a kid way.

Our friendship gained me status among the girls. A boy wanted to hold my hand, such a lofty elevation of my girlhood.  And not just any boy but a tanned, freckled, sweet one.

You wore colored, cotton, button up shirts, not tee shirts like the other boys. Then one day I was alone in story telling time. Oh sure I was surrounded by 30 other kids, but no one held my hand. You had gone to America. America??? How far away is that? Your dad was transferred with his work. Were you from the US originally? I don’t recall.

I am in America now too and sometimes I find myself looking for tanned, freckled faced, sweet men who wear colored, cotton, button up shirts.
