The Only Answer

This weeks  100 Word Challenge word is 'idea'.  

Toss and turn. Turn and toss. My head just wouldn’t let go. 

A senseless exercise, I couldn’t change the past. All the should haves and could haves, too late.

The moon rose, the moon set. 

At sunrise I dragged my weary body out of bed and trudged blindly for the coffee maker.

It was over that first cup that an idea began to form. 

With shaking hands I grabbed the phone and put my plan into motion. 

When you said hello I rushed into it, “Don’t hang up! I have to tell you something.”

“Ok, what?” you snarled.

“I’m sorry.”


  1. It's true, sometimes 'sorry' is the hardest word to say. A moving 100 Words.

  2. Isn't that one of the most difficult things to say sometimes? It is for me. Well done, and good idea!

  3. I think this may be my favourite 100 words so far this week. Nice.

  4. Good idea. A sorry can make every difference

  5. This spoke to me on so many levels. I'm sorry is one word I'm not ashamed to say but sometimes it's so hard.

    Great write.

  6. God. How often I longed to hear words similar. How many years if ever before I will?

    This ,made me tear up - thank you!

  7. Love it - especially the rushed "don't hang up!" Once the idea was formed, there was a palpable sense of urgency.
