Happenstance

A serendipitous crossing of paths. A few lucky words, well placed in time and space. There are many things I will never be, but there is also this: I never expected to fly.


This post was written in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge weekly prompt:

You should write a creative response using the given word. You must use the word in your response, and you must use it correctly. Your response can be no fewer than 33 and no more than 333 words. This week’s word is:

LUCKY (adjective)

1: having good luck
2: happening by chance : fortuitous
3: producing or resulting in good by chance : favorable

This post is dedicated, for whatever that’s worth, to everyone who has helped me find joy in writing. In particular, this means Cameron D. Garriepy, who pulled me into the blogosphere via Write On Edge and her own particular brand of enthusiasm, and more generally, this means the entire Trifecta community.
