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 29th Challenge
Hi, it’s Christina –
It’s Saturday, and
apparently moving day. Not like it was completely unexpected, but a little
notice would have been nice. Now my entire house is in a frenzy and I’m not
feeling all that great. I was moving tables, chairs and stuff yesterday in the
heat and I started feeling really sick. I guess I overheated myself even though
I was only working for an hour or so and I was drinking the whole time. I felt
so rotten, I even had to cancel a girls’ night at a friend’s house, which stunk
because I was looking forward to it.
A pack of boys should be
descending upon my house shortly – “the muscle”, therefore there will be no
peace for several hours, so I thought I should get the blog done now.
Your Last Challenge was:
At last I reach my secret spot. The trek was more grueling
today than usual because of all the rain we’ve had, but it was so worth it. I
pulled my shirt over my head, shimmied out of my shorts, adjusted my bathing
suit, and slowly glided into the heavenly water. I waded out waist deep before I dove into the
deeper pool, swam under the waterfall and climbed onto the ledge at the base of
the falls. This was my favorite place, standing behind the falls. There was
something almost magical being protected and dry in the cave as the rushing
water hid my existence from the world. Cautiously I step out onto a flat rock
and let the smaller fall pour down over me and let the water wash away my
Too many distractions and noise to write! I’ll
start early tomorrow morning before anyone is awake. Have a great day!
Your Next Challenge is:
I’m going to miss…
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.
