“A Writer’s Playground”–A place to find wordplay, writing, and monthly calendar activities for kids and those young at heart.”

“Just Jot It January #28–Serendipity” by Linda Martin Andersen

I accepted a challenge for January: Just jot a note and submit.  I can’t participate every day this month, but I will join in when I can.

I decided to create a theme to write about:  I chose “celebrate.”

Today, I celebrate serendipity.


Serendipity is one of my favorite words to twirl around in my mouth and feel on my lips.  Zippy do da does the same thing for me.

Have you ever run into someone you hadn’t seen in years, who had special connections that could benefit you, just when you were feeling overwhelmed with a major transition in your life?  Well maybe not that exactly, but things just fell into place in an expected way?  Well, those are my examples of serendipity for today.

Finding the word serendipity…

This morning I read one of my favorite blogs and I found the word “serendipity.”   I hope you find the word too and you find serendipity in your day as well.


Writing Prompts:

  1. When have you experienced serendipity? Please tell us.
  2. What are your thoughts on “luck.” Do you believe in it?  Explain.
  3. Do you believe good things are more likely to come by luck or hard work?  Tell about it.

Thank you for visiting “A Writer’s Playground.”  Come again soon and bring a friend. Please leave a comment.  I’d love to hear what you’re celebrating today.  Remember that children 13 and under need an adult to comment for them.  For more fun, sign up to follow my blog.  Thank you!
