Tyron smacked his lips happily. The perfect title hit him after two empty hours. ‘Seven mountains in seven years’, his answer to the challenge: ‘Wildest dreams’.
His finger hovered for a hesitating second longer. Then, click; the post was published.
The screen changed to Halo.
‘Come to bed, love. It’s late.’
Tyron glanced at his watch; it had been five hours since his post.
The blog screen came up again giving rise to a light flutter in Tyron’s chest. He clicked on the orange button. The comment read, ‘Why not just do it?’
Smiling cynically, Tyron typed, ‘Wish I had the time!’
After all my well-meant promises of last week, I still almost missed this week. Incredible! Plus I only managed to trim it to 102. Rusty!
Hope you like it. Have a nice weekend.
Hehe to Halo and also the escapism of writing. Seven mountains in seven years does sound doable but a lot of work! Good response to the prompt!
It was World of Warcraft at first, but that was two extra words! Thanks for your comment 🙂
There must be something I’m not getting with this. Nothing wrong with the writing, though. 😉
Haha 🙂 that’s ok. It’s all about how we spend our lives sitting at the computer playing games, watching film after film while there’s a whole world out there just waiting for us. As in, if I compress the time I spend watching series after series I’d collect enough hours to complete my whole bucket list… That’s what I tried to convey anyway.
Do it anyway. We’ll wait and we’ll understand.
hehe 🙂 thanks for that. Doug.
Dear Sandra, Beautiful story – don’t just be a watcher – be a doer? Is that right? I tend to spend an enormous amount of time on the computer but I enjoy learning about stuff – even more than when I went through school as a young woman. Your story is touching! Thanks! Nan 🙂
That’s exactly right! Thanks for your comment, Nan.
Sandra. Good story. I feel it’s never too late to be creative and use your gifts. Just do it and don’t look back. I hope Tyron decides what he really wants and takes action if it’s possible. Well written. 🙂 —Susan
Totally agree! Thanks a lot for your comment, Susan.
nicely done. I find that if I’m bored I go to the computer … Thanks for the reminder to STOP THAT!
Glad to be of service 😀
