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 26th Challenge
it’s Christina –
Call me a wimp, but I
PGed the scene and kept writing. It works. For some reason, hot and steamy didn’t
fit, but who knows, it may change during rewrites. Still have 8,500 words to go
in the next five days. Then the polishing, editing and rewriting begins, but I
think I’ll give it a rest for a week before I start the process. I still have
to finish editing the other book and get it back to its author.
Today may end up
being a wash though, because again, I have a house full of kids, sleeping on
every available surface. Pretty soon they are going to be waking up, making
noise, wanting food, etc. My one saving grace is going to be, my daughter has a
date with her grandmother at eleven, which means all these kids will be gone
Hopefully, I’ll be
able to write then. I’m having difficulty now writing this blog. I guess it may
have to do with this crazy weather change, but I’m in a lot of pain right now,
and having trouble focusing. My hip feels like it’s been pulled out of its
socket. Now I’m just waiting for the Motrin to kick in and take the edge off.
This whole getting old thing is for the birds!
Your Last Challenge was:
I hadn’t planned on running for President
I hadn’t planned on running for President,
but here I am. It started out innocently enough, just a rant on my blog, over
the idiocy of our local school board. I could not believe how folks with no
common sense what-so-ever could become elected officials. I received more
comments to my blog than any of my other posts had done in the past. One reader
wrote, well if you could change things what would you do, and I responded. This
continued for several weeks, more questions, more responses. My audience grew
from a humble 335 to over 335,000. The questions kept flooding in and I
answered as many as I could with complete unfiltered honesty. The next thing I
knew, there was a reporter at my door asking me questions about the upcoming
election. When I told him I had no idea what he was talking about, he
generously explained, I was a write in on the ballot.
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.
