Big.. Bigger...Biggest? #mfrwauthor

Welcome to Week 50 of the challenge, two more to go. This has been my first writing challenge and finishing it will be a major accomplishment. But what to claim as my biggest accomplishment.



Maybe I should claim my career as a correspondent and feature story writer, or my three local history books. But no, the official topic is "Biggest Accomplishment." The number of fiction novels published is larger than the number of non-fiction so the history books get knocked out.

By biggest accomplishment could be a recap of favorable reviews or those left with four or five stars. Nope, that goes under week 46. This is getting harder and harder.

Time is running out and I need to answer the question. So, of all the things I've ever done, my biggest accomplishment is my marriage. Forty plus years and counting, it's survived deaths and upheavals, empty nest and full. Of course, you could say it's not my accomplishment but my husband's for putting up with me. But I'm claiming our time together as my biggest accomplishment. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.



~till next time. Visit the other authors to see what their consider their biggest accomplishment.
