Day 22 of the challenge!
My theme is NIFTY NUGGETS. Little nuggets of writing based on a photo, a phrase and an object, which is designed to encourage lean, tight writing. I’m aiming for a word count of under 300 words.
Thank you to L.Diane Wolfe for providing the beautiful photo prompts. You can visit her blog to check out more pictures.
PHRASE – movers and shakers
OBJECT – classroom
Am I a modern soul? No.
I’m not too sure that I’m an old soul either. Too much pressure with wisdom and all that jazz.
But, a vintage soul. That I am.
Intent on capturing the nostalgia of a lost era when neither me nor my parents existed. It’s a time sans the beep of smartphones or the colourful, idyllic life often displayed by HD big screens.
My vintage profile?
Vintage dress addiction. Guilty.
Music on vinyl. Guilty.
Half of my Pandora stations pre-1970. Yep, guilty.
Outbursts of “jeepers creepers” in my classroom last week. Guilty again.
Pretending to live in another time via fiction. So guilty.
Presented with a once-in-a-life time ‘vintage’ window of opportunity means that I have to shift my lens, adopt a new mindset, make some life-style adjustments…
As a self-proclaimed mover and shaker, I have secured a coveted spot in the upcoming Vintage Reality Show.
It’s the ultimate coup.
A vintage victory.
