One-Liner Wednesday – The line


Considering my job is to throw the worst that could happen at the characters in my books, is it any wonder I worry about my kids all the time? Which leads to the question, where is the line between parenting and fiction drawn, since life is stranger?

If you would like to participate in this prompt, feel free to use the “One-Liner Wednesday” title in your post, and if you do, you can ping back here to help your blog get more exposure. To execute a pingback, just copy the URL in the address bar on this post, and paste it somewhere in the body of your post. Your link will show up in the comments below. Please ensure that the One-Liner Wednesday you’re pinging back to is this week’s! Otherwise, no one will likely see it but me.

NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, like Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.

As with Stream of Consciousness Saturday (SoCS), if you see a pingback from someone else in my comment section, click and have a read. It’s bound to be short and sweet.

Unlike SoCS, this is not a prompt so there’s no need to stick to the same “theme.”

The rules that I’ve made for myself (but don’t always follow) for “One-Liner Wednesday” are:

1. Make it one sentence.

2. Try to make it either funny or inspirational.

3. Use our unique tag #1linerWeds.

4. Add our lovely badge to your post for extra exposure!

5. Have fun!

  29. It’s natural to worry about our kids. Being blessed (or cursed) with a lot of imagination takes it to another level. Sometimes I catch myself and tape over the worst case scenario by imagining the best.

  36. Personally I don’t think there is a line Linda. Being a parent is the scariest job I have ever tackled….it’s so the best …. occasionally.💜💜💜
