http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-image-child-blows-dandelion-seeds-image2351361I bet that you have something from your childhood that you never will forget. I hope you’ll share on of your favorite childhood memories with us.


If you’re new to Story Weekend, here’s how it works: I pick a theme and you share something from your life that relates to that theme, however you interpret it. Thanks to all of you who’ve contributed. As always, there are a few “rules”:


▪ The story must be true


▪ Try to keep it under 100 words. Embrace the challenge! That’s about six or seven lines in the comment form. I want others to read your story, and most people tend to skip if it’s too long. I know how tough it is to “write tight” but I hope you’ll accept this as a challenge.

The characters in my book Brass Ring reflect back on their memories of a carousel.  Do you have a story that includes a carousel or a ride at a fair?
