Write Yourself Alive: Day 30 – Leaving My Mark

Today’s Prompt: Write a one or two-paragraph extended epitaph, in the third person. Consider there won’t be a lot of space on your tombstone and yet you’re a writer, so every word counts. Try to say as much as possible using the least amount of words. What do you want to be remembered by?

I can’t believe we’re here at the end of this writing journey. Thank you for being a part of it. Here’s to the next chapter. 🙂


Jennifer [insert last name here, whatever that may be]

Daughter. Sister. Wife. Mother. Grandmother. Great Grandmother.

She loved with all her heart, created with her hands, studied with her mind, and traveled with her feet.
She saw the world, embraced it, and made it better. She laughed. A lot. And she hopes she made you laugh, too.
Now, on she goes to her next journey.

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though I oft have passed them by,
A day will come at last when I
Shall take the hidden paths that run
West of the Moon, East of the Sun.
