What is a Good Story (Redux) County Route 20 Todd

This weekend is the FIFTH YEAR of the wonderful HOBART FESTIVAL FOR WOMEN WRITERS. Come join us all if you can. festivalofwomenwriters2017.com  Every one of us will WRITE SOMETHING. As always,  I will consider what a good story is. Tell me if you know.


Rod was a farmer down the road

so so organic son of a wealthy man

who’d married his secretary (that is not a good story)

he’d bring vegetables to sell

from other farms  needed  money

joined a cult started by a carnival barker

they make Estee Lauder’s Origins (really)

Rod brought his children into the cult

his wife said No they were thrown out

for reasons of drinking. Years have gone by.

What do you think happened to Rod?

(Where is the story? Right there.)

Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
