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 23rd Challenge
it’s Christina –
morning all. Hope everyone had a great Monday. The girls and I were quite
productive yesterday, but we realized there was no way we were going to get
through all the laundry any time soon with only one washer and dryer, so today
we are going to bag it up and head to the laundry mat. Three hours and it will
all be done!
majority of the things being washed are things they will no longer wear and are
going to be donated, so I didn’t want to waste any extra time on them, when
their time could be spent organizing, or in my older daughter’s case, packing.
There are still a ton of things down there from when my son lost all his
weight, and although my husband is not opposed to hand-me-ups, some of the
stuff is just too young for him to wear.
just realized, many of you don’t know about my son’s amazing weight loss. In a
little over a year, he dropped 173 lbs! To put that into perspective, that is the
equivalent of losing a full grown man! He cut out all soda and sports drinks,
almost all carbs, and started going to the gym. He was determined and focused.
We are all so proud of him! I made him take one of those cheesy pictures you
see in ads that no one ever believes are true.
YES, those really are a pair of his old pants. He went from a
46 to a 32. I’d be happy to drop 20lbs and can’t manage to do it. I am in awe
of my child.
Your Last Challenge was:
Phew, the last three
bails. Dang my back hurts, but I can’t stop. Not with that storm rollin’ in.
Not that I’ complainin’ Lord, we sure could use the rain. These last few weeks
have been mostly dry, but if today’s a good soaker, the crops will be just
fine. From the feel of my back and shoulder, it’s going to be a good soaker.
Ok, hay done. Next mend
the fence, then back to get the horse so I can find where that dang cow’s got
to. I swear this is the third time she has wandered off right when she was
about to deliver. I don’t get it. Is some rocky ravine more appealing to give
birth? Ah, no use complainin’, ain’t gunna change the situation none. I just
gotta go get her.
Wonder if Mike’s
around? Sure could use the help if she’s actually gone into labor. Best pack
some food, just in case we’re out there a while. Lord only knows how it will
take to find the fool creature.
There. Done. That
wasn’t too bad. Thank God for small favors. Alright, back to the house.

Next Challenge is:
Write a story containing the following three items: Beach Ball,
Ice Cream, Life Guard
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.
