One, two: Unless she’s wearing
pink, everybody thinks she’s a boy (so what, I’m not dressing her in pink).
Three, four: She’s not bothered, I still get to decide what she wears (green & brown hide grass & mud stains, see).
Five, six: It had better look pretty or she’s not going to wear it (and she’ll be the judge of what is and isn’t pretty).

So WordPress seems to have decided my comments are spam
. If you joined Three Line Tales last week and you’re in the upper half of yesterday’s round-up, it might be worth checking the comment spam on your dashboard. I gave up when I realised nothing I wrote got published, mind.
Now, I don’t know how WP (and/or Akismet) decide what constitutes spam. And I won’t be able to find out this week because of course this happens while WP are away on their annual get-together.
Just as I was going to ease myself back into blogging regularly, as well.
I am still here
because of you.
As long as you read, I’ll write.*

But this month, I may not post as often as you’re used to – international move etc. Once it’s done, it will be business as usual.
Welcome to Week of
Three Line Tales.
photo prompt by Emiel Molenaar – you’ll find the full resolution shot here
You’ll find full guidelines on the
TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:
Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).
Link back to this post.
Tag your post with
3LineTales (so everyone can find you in the Reader). Read and comment on other TLT participants’ lines.
If you want your post to be included in the round-up, you have until Sunday evening to publish it. I can’t guarantee I’ll get round to updating the round-up later than that.
Please note I’ll be house-hunting in another country all day, so I may not be around much today. Wish me luck…
This is a story about a girl who received a
piece of advice she didn’t like. One of her creative writing teachers said: Creativity loves boundaries.
No, said the girl, I don’t like boundaries. I don’t want to make anything off limits. I want it all.
But all is quite a lot. Sometimes, all staring at the girl proved too much.
Maybe, said the girl. Maybe I’ll try a boundary.
One hundred words. I’m going to limit myself to 100 words, said the girl. See how it goes.
Bumpy is how it went, at first. Now, though, it’s going well.

I’ve spent all day
chasing appropriate words
but what d’you say in the face of monumental stupidity?
head shuts down
‘That’s a good fairy,’
‘Draw me another.’
NaPoWriMo for introducing me to the lune – my new favourite form – at the beginning of the month.

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompts is food, this week’s WP Discover challenge is about memory – I combined them in a bowl and this is the result…)
