A blog about writing, being a writer, getting inspired to write, etc. For writers, authors, would-be writers and authors. I only have 2 rules. 1, please keep everything PG rated at most, there are some younger folks who read my blog; and 2, please do not criticize what others have written. I would like this to be a safe haven for folks to explore their writing style and to gain some confidence in their story telling abilities. Nasty comments will be deleted.

June 1st Challenge
Hi, it’s Christina –
Happy Saturday morning everyone! It is a beautiful
day in NJ. I am hoping my husband and I will be able to finish my Mother’s Day
garden today. It is getting close, and I would love to be able to spend
tomorrow planting. When it is finished there will be 5 raised beds. In the
largest one, I was planning on planting a raspberry bush, a blueberry bush, and
then some corn. The next one will have lettuce, carrots, and radishes. The
middle one will have peas, beans and cucumbers. The fourth one will have
potatoes, peppers and tomatoes; and the last one will have all my herbs. Can
you tell I’m excited?
Yesterday’s challenge was:
That was weird!
I swear I put my keys right in the middle of the kitchen table. I walked
in, tossed my keys in the bowl in the center of the table, put my bag on the
chair, then went to hang up my coat. I do the same thing every time I come
home. I’m obsessive with that one thing. No one’s been home, so no one could
have moved my keys. OK, maybe I had a momentary lapse and put them in my coat
pocket. Nope, not there. Perhaps I left them in the car. Thankfully not there
either. Think. What did I do after I hung up my coat? Bathroom. UGH, not there
either! I put my hands on my hips and scan the kitchen. They have to be here
somewhere! Then, out of the corner of my eye, I catch a reflection. There, in
the bowl, in the center of the table, are my keys. That was weird!
Your Next Challenge is something really different:
Write a story about the following photo:
You have 10 minutes (be honest). There is no right
or wrong, just write. Spelling and punctuation don’t count and NO ONE is
allowed to criticize what someone else has written. Go.
