A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Casual Fridays: Letting go

Hi guys, it's Britt. 
Ever heard that saying: "like a dog with a bone?" 

Sometimes I read one of these Tire Swing Stories after I've published it, and a part of me cringes. I want to go back and fix something. I have to stop myself. I have to remind myself that the whole point of this blog is that the stories are spontaneous. Raw. No changes, no obsessing over this comma, or that word choice. Once a story is out there, I have to let go.

That's really hard, but I'm working on it.

What about you? What do you have a hard time letting go of?

Have a releasing weekend, story-makers. See you back here on Monday. 
Britt

  1. lovely Britt. I recently posted a blog entitled 'letting go'....it's definitely that time of year of accepting, and relaxing into what is, not what should be, very difficult, very simple, very powerful.
