My beloved grandfather used to say that nice things happened on Tuesdays. A Catholic, he would pray 13 Hail Marys, 13 Our Fathers (this link leaves off the true ending of the prayer, but I'll let it stand), and 13 Glory Bes every Tuesday morning.
My mother, a devoted daughter, visited her parents every Tuesday and Saturday. She'd take care of chores for which they needed help, bring my Gram to lunch and shopping, and generally cheer them with her presence. Before I started school and during the summer, I always tagged along. You can imagine what a fond memory it is for me to think of my grandfather saying that on Tuesday morning as I ran over to hug him hello.
Even though I'm no longer a Catholic (well, can one really leave behind the religion of youth? I suppose, yet I haven't fully done so), I say my 13s (how can I resist the number?)every Tuesday morning, and I look for the nice things that happen around me.
Today I decided to offer what I hope will be a nice thing for my writing friends. Each Tuesday, I will post a writing prompt on Open Road Writing. Use them freely, and please link to the site if you are sharing them.
I'd love to hear from you if a particular prompt has sparked a scene or story. Enjoy!
