#SOLSC21: Three Words

This post was inspired by Elena Wetmore at Standing Tall whose post “3 Words” was the inspiration at TWT today. Check out her blog post here.

A few three word stories provide today’s slice.

In no particular order:

My Three Grandsons

Eight Year Anniversary

Kids, Dog, Fish

Shot 2 Today!

Perseverance Paid Off!

Greatniece Baking Cookies!

Hallalujah! New Stove!

Lasagna Family Dinner

Don’t Open Frig!

Cold, Cold, Cold!

Thankfully, No Snow

Funny Stories Told

Challenge: What 3 word stories can you tell? Where might you use these micro stories?


Thank you, Two Writing Teachers, for this daily forum during the month of March. Check out the writers and readers here.

  1. I love six … three might be about my speed this month. So much to consider! Happy you are getting your second shot. I am getting my first!

    1. Yay, Clare to getting your first shot.
      Three was a challenge.
      Literally, words counted so much!

  2. I haven’t seen this before. Lap cats purring. Walks in nature. Family and friends.

  3. Three word stories is a challenge I could handle. I am appreciative of quick slices to read because I have limited reading time. Oh there are three words I could start with. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Margaret, Once I started I could not stop! You will love it

  4. I love this idea, Fran. I am going to try this out! Thanks for the many examples. I would like to hear the entire “Kids, Dog, Fish” story.

    1. Lynne, it is on my list to write this month!

  5. This definitely left me asking more – Don’t open Frig! – is there a surprise there? Is the power off and you don’t want to spoil the food?

    Love the format.
    See you later!

    1. Omg! I probably should duct tape it shut because it is so FULL!

  6. […] post was inspired by Fran McVeigh who was inspired by another slicer. I’ve taken a different track – guilty pleasures. […]
