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 2nd Challenge
Hi, it’s Christina –
Another typical Sunday morning – kids sleeping on
every surface. Light load today, only three extra bodies, but I never got to
the grocery store yesterday so I have no clue what I can make them for
breakfast. Surprisingly my daughter (the one who would sleep until noon if you
let her) and one friend are up already. They decided to heat up some potato,
bacon, cheddar soup I made the other day and are chowing down. Somehow, I think
when the other two get up, they will go for the cold pizza in the fridge as
their breakfast. Teenagers?!?
Since it was well over 90 degrees here yesterday,
my husband and I didn’t get any work done on the garden, but I’m hoping we both
suck it up and get out there today. I’m chomping at the bit to get planting. Corn
will never get “knee high by the 4th of July” if it doesn’t get in
A picture is worth a thousand words, so what did
you think about yesterday’s challenge? Did the photo bring forth a story of a
magical faraway place? Was it present day or long ago? Were you the owner or a
Yesterday’s challenge was:
Write a story about the following photo:
Alaric’s mount crested the hill and there, at last, laid out before him,
was a sight he had not seen in several years … home. Although bone weary, he
was reenergized by its nearness, almost as if an invisible force drew him to
the warmth, the safety, the peace which lay within. Alaric pressed his knee
into his horse’s side and the animal responded instantly, gradually gaining
speed as they descended the mountain. By the time they hit the field, they were
in a full gallop.
All the kids are now up and chattering like magpies, so I cannot
concentrate enough to write. Hope you have a great day!
Your Next Challenge is:
Just five more minutes…
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.
