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 4th Challenge
Hi, it’s Christina –
What an absolutely
GLORIOUS day! Crystal blue cloudless skies, no humidity, a light breeze and
about seventy-five degrees; as far as I’m concerned, it’s PERFECT! It did get a
little warm while I was working on the garden this morning and I think my
shoulders got a little burnt, but it was worth it. It is so nice to be able to
go outside and enjoy the weather, a definite bonus to being unemployed!
I decided to take a break
from the sun and come inside for a while, write my blog, get a load of laundry
finished, have some lunch then I’ll go out again… maybe.
Yesterday’s challenge was:
My favorite teacher…
My favorite teacher…how could I possibly decide? Would it be Miss Payne
from kindergarten, or Ms. Glaser from third grade, or Mr. Mullen from fifth?
All were great and I remember them well, but would they qualify as my favorite?
Perhaps not, but then again there was Mr. Guido in seventh, Ms. Mogland in
eighth and Mrs. Neudecker in ninth. Of the three, I’d have to say Mrs.
Neudecker was the favorite, but that is because she was the first to actually
treat us like human beings. It also helped that she was an absolute riot. High
school brought Mr. Paulino who gave me a love of history and Mr. Richards who
had me prove to myself that I actually had a brain, and Mr. Wurple who
encouraged me to play an instrument even though I was four years behind the
rest of the band. College had Professor Jim, who believed in my writing so much
he published one of my short stories in a literary journal at another college where
he worked. I guess each one is a favorite, because each, in their own way, left
a lasting impression and help mold me into the person I am today.
Your Next Challenge is … another 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.
