Writing prompt: grandparents

Today's prompt comes from the book Room to Write by Bonni Goldberg.

Today begin with the word grandmother or grandfather and let the memories and associations serve as a tour guide. Examine what surfaces. Is it mostly character description, story, history, opinion, or something else?

Write on right.
Susan

hey.. thanks for that prompt! I ended up writing this way cool blogpost about my grandfather. The really sad part is that blogger went haywire and completely deleted what I had worked on for over an hour! :((( ....

I'm too depressed to try it over again. IT just won't be as good. But you were the inspiration for something important to me that only I could have written and then read. Just wanted you to know, Susan! :)

Thanks, itripped! I found some pug stuff that I have been meaning to get over to you.

modigli - I responded to you in a couple of places. I got up this morning thinking, I'm nuts. No way that I can pull off the writing prompts blog AND my LJ one and who the heck cares about the prompts anyway and a whole bunch of other very negative stuff.

And then I got your note. I'm sorry that blogger ate your words but thank you. The blog stays. The prompts stay. Because of you.

Write on right now.
Susan

WOW! I am so pleased! You gave me a chance to write something I really loved, and just an opportunity to think about my grandfather and what an amazing guy he was.

Win-Win situation here!

Thank you, too, for those words!
