  1. I am so impressed with your six word lines. I played with that in my head and it was so hard! Your writing makes it sound effortless. And I love how it’s such a complete story with so few words. So fun to read!

    1. Thank you for your comments. I was struggling how to piece together a narrative of what happened, got frustrated, and decided to break it down into something manageable – 6 word chunks.


    1. I have the Libby app on my phone. I always have a book downloaded from my public library. It is a godsend while waiting in lines.
