Three Things Challenge 669 and Friday Fictioneers July 23

Pensitivity101 Rules:

Welcome to The Three Things Challenge.
Below are three things that may, or may not, be related. Simply read the prompt and see where your creativity takes you.
You can use one, two or all three words in your post, there are no restrictions regarding length, style, or genre apart from keeping it family friendly.
You can use 3TC, #threethingschallenge or TTC as a tag and my logo if you wish.
Invite us along by creating a pingback to this post, then leave your link in the comments so that other people can read your writings and I’ll see it to respond to you directly. You might like to check out some of the other contributions while you’re there.

I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!
I look forward to reading your responses, and as always thank you all for your continued support.

Your three words are:

CRAZY
HOLIDAY
VISIT

The Ornament

By Tessa Dean July 2021

*********************

Patty was getting crazy looks from the people watching her walking her cat down the sidewalk on a leash. She had to admit it was kind of crazy, especially with all the snow on the sidewalk that was almost as tall as her cat, but she continued walking Taffy.

As she approached a tree, she saw a single ornament hanging on one of the branches. Unfortunately, she was only visiting and couldn’t go home for some more holiday ornaments, so she headed for the local dollar store and bought several boxes of ornaments, and came back and decorated the tree.

Thanks to Natalie the Explorer for hosting this prompt.

Grab yourself a beverage and pull up a chair. If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have started physical therapy on my broken foot. It still hurts something fierce and is very swollen. I was told it could take months for the pain to start to subside. Not what I wanted to hear.

I would tell you that I finally got book one to the editor and trying to decided what will be book 2 or even if there will be a book 2. I am not sure what I want to do. I am happier writing short stories and flash fiction and poetry, mainly haikus. I am stuck on whether if I do decide to do a series if it should be consecutive or concurrent. In other words the stories would be all around the same time so they would be standalone novels and it wouldn’t matter in what order you read them. I find consecutive hard because I already wrote short stories for most of them that just need a beginning and an end. They are all around the same age so consecutive would make them all older instead as the series continued. I am thinking of standalones which means more rewriting than I planned on.

I would tell you that they have restarted the art classes here where I live. They provide the teacher and the supplies so it doesn’t cost me anything.

Have a great week everyone.
