I was thinking about the "writing prompt" while I was preparing to head out for an early morning walk/run. Suddenly the words just started tumbling forth. I intended to physically write it when I was finished with the run but previous experience has shown me that if I don't write it down while I'm thinking it, Its gone. And it felt like a very short but good piece. I wrote and posted it and went on my way. Imagine my surprise later, when I saw my blog had been visited and commented on.
The first comments I received (outside of family) not only made me a little estatic but served to confirm in a small way that maybe I do have it in me. And maybe that short piece will add up to a short story. Who knows. But thanks to all of you who popped over to check it out and especially to those who left the encouraging thoughts!
