Weekend Prompt: In Your Father's Shoes

Publish date:

Hey writers,

WD Editor Jessica Strawser and I are gearing up to conquer a critical chunk of our Nov/Dec issue today, so I’ll cut my usual screeds and ramblings short(er), and wish you an excellent weekend. I’m planning on jaunting down to the Kentucky State Fair in Louisville tomorrow, and there’s a high likelihood some prompts will arise next week from my (often bizarre, if not curiously charming) old Kentucky home’s festival. Think rooster crowing contests. Miniature horses. Lynn's Paradise Cafe Ugly Lamp Contest. Yes.

Yours in writing,



PROMPT:In Your Father's Shoes
In 500 words or fewer, funny, sad or stirring:

You put on your father’s shoes, take a deep breath, say a quick prayer, and walk outside. His hat never quite fit right, but still, you wear it.
