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: Have you seen my nose?

Potato head by toyfoto.
Hi guys. It's Britt.
I'm hard at work on my submission for the Toronto Star Short Story Contest (deadline in two days--ack!), and so I don't have much blogging time today. Right now, my story is feeling a bit like a Mr. Potato Head that is put together wrong. Its eyeballs are in its guts. Its tongue is on the side of its head. I'm going to spend most of the day sorting out this little potato of mine. 
Course, sometimes having eyeballs in your guts is exactly right.


  1. Whatever you submit, I wish you well. You have so much heart and talent. Are you going to share it with the rest of us?

  2. This comment is for Gramma Sue: Thank you for being so flipping supportive! We love you!
