I Wish I Could

Meanwhile back at the ranch

There’s a whole lot of wishing going on

Rules from Carrot Ranch if you want to join, I hope you do, JOIN!

In 99 words (no more, no less), write a story about “the wish I made.” Whose wish is it and how does it fit into the story? What kind of wish? Go where the prompt leads!


"I wish I knew "How To."
"How to what?" said the voice of a friend.
"How to anything; I can't do anything expertly well."
"I can't draw, paint, or even write a little poem."
"I wish I could be a famous author; I will settle for a not famous author."
"I wish I wasn't such a scoffer."
"If only I had a daughter, I would sit her down and draw her."
The friend's voice became very loud; "see, your wish came true, you're making poems just by speaking, you are an author, you just didn't know it."
"I am?"

  1. Sometimes it takes another perspective to see that what we have wished for is contained in us. Good to see you, Myrna! Thank you for your submission to the Collection at Carrot Ranch. It will publish Wednesday, February 2.
