Topic: Making Ends Meet (01/16/14)

TITLE: THE PARALLEL ENDS

Making both ends meet in a country where the man on the street earns less than one dollar a day is a big headache, nay a pounding migraine. Your earning end and your spending end are worlds apart. Expenditure gladly swallows up the meagre earnings and yawns for more. It just must be. Domestic family needs of food, shelter and housing are not your only dependants. You also must share in the government's responsibilities of providing potable water, sanitation, electricity etc, with your peanuts if you don't want to learn the maxim 'health is wealth' the hard way. For healthcare delivery costs a fortune in our land. 'All what we're praying for, government has done it for them here,' one of us who left for London phoned in.

That would be a tremendous challenge to balance things out. I hope you can do that. Thanks for sharing your story.

You have a unique and interesting voice. I liked where you were going, but I needed more. I wanted to see the struggles of a family and really understand and feel for the people. You did cover the topic and that first line hooked me. Keep writing and read and comment on as many challenges as possible. Also in the message boards there is a great thread for all levels of writers called Jan's Writing Basics. I've learned so much from Jan and she is great at responding to everyone who posts on her thread.
