100/100 CHALLENGE 86: The story is everything

Day 86

The story is everything, tell the story, write it down, capture what happens, what you did, what you said, create your narrative, tell your tale.
I met a young boy who had a wonderful way with words, so imaginative – do you write stories at school? I asked. No, he didn’t. I got the impression he wasn’t that interested. You should! Write your stories! You should!
Husband began to write his biography, the stories of his life. I reminded him to write more, so many funny and interesting escapades, the early days of rock and roll, life in Cornwall – write it!

April 30th 2021 would’ve been Captain Tom Moore’s 101st birthday; in recognition and in remembrance of his achievement, a new challenge was announced by his family. They challenged ordinary folk to complete a hundred somethings to raise more funds for The Captain Tom Foundation – ‘whether you bake 100 cupcakes or walk 100 laps – help celebrate Captain Tom’s achievements.’ The official ‘Captain Tom 100’ has now finished, but I’ve challenged myself to write a 100 word blog each day for 100 days. I started on May 1st and when I complete my task, I’ll donate £100 to his Foundation.
