Daily Prompt: Three Coins in a Fountain


Have you ever tossed a coin or two into a fountain and made a wish? Did it come true? —http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/03/21/daily-prompt-coins/

I quit throwing coins into fountains, paying attention to 11:11’s on the clock, and wishing on stars about 3 1/2 years ago when my younger brother died. Because the only thing that I could ever truly wish for is to have my brother back, and that’s something that can never be made real for me.

Wishing became pointless, so I save my change, and my time. It just isn’t worth it anymore.

I have an MA in Publishing, Literature & Writing, with special emphasis on digital publishing and web development. I also have a BA in English Language & Literature with a minor in Linguistics. I am interested in the social impact of literature, LGBTQIA+ media, intersectional feminism and sociolinguistic analysis. I host a queer-focused book club, and have a bad habit of buying ten times more books than I will ever be able to read.
