My Mouth is Zipped – prompt from the Daily News (non-fiction)



Tell us about a thing you’ll never write about.


The thing that I will never write about is the details of my experiences with wife-swapping and an open marriage. This is something we withheld from the children and our regular friends and besides it is not the kind of thing that belongs in a public journal type blog.

I did bring this up briefly in the story of the break-up of our marriage, but didn’t go into details except for the one who broke us up. The rest is not necessary to be publicly known.

There were some good and bad parts about the experience and it eventually led to the breakup of our marriage. I do not regret this experience, but I wouldn’t recommend it to others who are trying to mend a broken marriage.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.
