Morton’s Fork? I Prefer The Third Option!

WordPress daily writing prompt: Morton’s Fork – If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?

Morton’s Fork? What is that? I’ve never heard of it.

mortons fork IMG_2098After some googling I found what Morton’s Fork means. It’s a logical dilemma where a person is faced with one of two choices, both of which are bad choices. Makes one wish for a third option. Check the photo on the left – is this a Morton’s Fork? Go left and you go into the desert. Go right and you go into the desert too. So it’s not really a choice. Back to the question asked by today’s prompt…I prefer the third option (sorry Morton) – I want to write my own blog AND I also want to read others’ blogs.

Two is a dilemma.

Three is a choice.

Two leads to non-action.

Three leads to action.

Two expresses limitations.

Three expresses possibilities.

I prefer that.
