    1. Agreed! I could feel a whole story developing in my mind, but I really wanted to keep it short to practice my restraint in verbosity 😉 Can’t wait to read all the submissions!

    2. You know, I could point you to quite a few pieces I wrote based on a writing prompt I thought wouldn’t work for me. Looking forward to see what you come up with 🙂

      1. I’m looking forward to your reaction to it 🙂 Particularly, as I really respect your writing skill tremendously!

        It’s great to be challenged by a prompt, such as this one, as it causes me to think a little more than normal, which is always a good thing.


  1. Off-key

    “Do you remember that dream?”
    “Yes, I do although I don’t remember being there.”
    “Well, you were tickling the ivories, I was tickling you, and the river was rising slow and steady.”

  2. I love this Idea. And how am I just now seeing this? Keep it up!

    Also, TLT is back in a different capacity thanks to a few hardcore individuals that could’t let it die gracefully. : ) Now you can find TLT on the weekly blog ( for the Literary Magazine Ink In Thirds ( Or follow Ink In Thirds on Twitter (@inkinthirds) for publishing info, inspiration and weekly TLT prompts.

    1. Thanks, Grace! TLT got me into poetry and I wanted to spread the love.

      And it’s great to see some of the old TLT regulars on Ink In Thirds – very exciting!

  3. Etude in Anxious Ivory

    The piano looks so big, and my pen appears so small
    Wood parts are old and unattractive, which is how I feel about myself
    Book’s blotches more than my blank note: but my job, my need—trying to compose
