Third Time's The Charm

Number One: too young. After college, marriage was what you did next.
Number Two: looked too good to be true. Lucky to survive.
Number Three: best friend, muse, and poet. Dream come true.

"The Rule of Three is a writing principle that asserts that, in writing, groups of three have the most impact. This week's challenge is to write 33 words using the Rule of Three somewhere among them. It is up to you to interpret the rule, just make sure to use exactly 33 words."

  2. I liked this. I have a best friend, muse and poet, so I relate and appreciate. Curious about number 2. Who was lucky to survive? Him, you or both? :)

  5. I love this - a happy ending always makes me smile. I can't help but think we appreciate the good even more after we've traveled through the bad.
