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.

July 14th Challenge
it’s Christina –
bright and early this foggy Sunday morning because the girls need to be at the
church by 6:30. Today they are leaving for their Summer Mission Project. For
one week, they will be in a tiny town in southwest Pennsylvania helping the
residents work on their houses or the community center or some other need this
extremely poor town has. They will be sleeping and eating at a convent. There
is no TV, no internet and even phone service is a little iffy at times. This
will be my oldest daughter’s third trip and my youngest daughter’s first. One
whole week of my 18 year old being responsible for my 14 year old – should prove
kinda bummed. I never made it to the party yesterday because I got one of my
lovely headaches again. I think it was brought on this time because my
allergies have been so bad and I may have a sinus infection. A bunch of years
ago my brother-in-law’s brother and his wife and daughter moved out to Kentucky,
and other than on Skype during the holidays, I haven’t seen them. I was really
looking forward to catching up. I’m not sure when they are headed back. Maybe I’ll
get to see them today.
well, I need to get my rugrats up and out, so let’s get to the challenges. Have
a great day!
Your Last Challenge
For me, THIS is the happiest place on Earth
Some say the beach, some say the
mountains, and some do actually say Disney, but for me, this right here,
sitting in front of my computer writing, is my happiest place on Earth. Now
that’s not to say I don’t mind having my computer with me in any of those
places, well maybe not Disney, I think I’d be a little too distracted and busy.
Through my writing I’ve been
transported to the seediest or the most historic parts of London, galloped over
the English countryside, stood on Ireland’s breathtaking rocky coast, and strolled
the spice market in exotic Istanbul. I’ve sailed into the battle of Trafalgar
alongside Lord Nelson and I’ve danced the waltz at glamorous balls.
When writing I can be anywhere during
any time, past, present or future. I can possess skills, talents and abilities
only a handful of people can boast. My only limitation is my imagination, and
so far, mine knows no bounds. How could this not be my happiest place on Earth?
Your Next Challenge is:
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.
