Succinctly Yours for July 25 - Master Carpenter

Succinctly Yours is hosted by Grandma of Grandma's Goulash. She presents us with a photo and we are to use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words. It doesn’t have to be exactly 140, just not more. The vast majority of us use the 140 character option.

If we want more of a challenge? Then we can use the word of the week in our stories. This is optional.

How does Grandma come up with the weekly word?

She doesn’t. She asks her daughter for a word without her having seen the picture. That makes it more fun for everyone. 

I hope you enjoy the results. Join us if you want. We'd love to have more to read!

Photo for Monday, July 25th.
 

Word Of The Week: arbitrary 
To his wife, the array of tools seemed so arbitrary. But to Jonas, they represented the fulfillment of a dream that honored his grandfather’s legacy.

Good job. The fulfillment of a dream is always a happy ending, even if some people don't understand.

This almost sounds like a blurb for a book, or something you might memorize to say to an agent at a conference when asked about your book. Excellent.

Aww, very sweet. It is always impressive to read about someone preserving a relative's legacy.

I like this. It's a wonderful legacy to preserve. My mf is about a guy who didn't do that.

Ah yes, a man and his workshop and his grandfather's tools! Lovely!
