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 9th Challenge
it’s Christina –
sun’s not quite up yet, but I am. Needed a little time to write before I had to
make all the sandwiches and get everything packed for our day at the beach. My
daughters, their cousin, and one other friend of theirs will be joining me.
Four teenage girls; is that going to be a noisy car ride or what? It should be
fun. We have a beautiful day. The only thing I’m wondering about is what our
favorite beach is going to look like. This will be our first trip down since
hurricane Sandy. I guess we’ll find out soon.
pressed for time this morning, so I’m going to get right to it. Have a great
Your Last Challenge
Well, why’d it do
There I was, just clicking away on my
computer, when it started acting very strange. I was typing a document, then
all of a sudden I was looking at a photo of my kids from last Christmas. Well, why’d it do that? I asked myself. I didn’t hit anything. I click out of
the photo and back to my document. Now
where was I? Oh yeah, I remember. A few minutes later, the same thing
happens, but this time it’s my FaceBook page that pops up. What the heck?? I pick up my laptop and turn it all around, looking
to see if something is hitting the mouse without me knowing. Nothing seems
unusual. Ok, just close out of everything
except Word and you should be fine. I follow my own advice, and close
everything except the document I’m writing. Click, click, click, then pop, I’m
looking at me email. Now why’d it do
THAT? That’sit, I give up! I guess this is a sign I shouldn’t be writing and
should be doing something else. I power the computer off.
A little lame today, but it’s early, I
haven’t had my coffee, and I’m thinking about the zillion things I need to do
before we have to leave in an hour and a half. Sorry.
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.
