Weekend Writing Prompt — New Life

New LifeIt’s a brand new year and it’s time for new beginnings. I need to change my whole outlook on life. I need to stop being so vulnerable. I have to cease being such a lollygag. I must try a novel approach that will enable me to ascend to new heights in this coming year.

This is my resolution for 2020.

(60 words)

    Lollygag? Must be another of those American words that doesn’t exist here in the UK… 🙂

      It means wasting time, being aimless. Very American! 😉

      It’s really not about me. Just a piece of flash fiction to fit the prompts. But yes, I wish we septuagenarians could all be more healthy.
