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.

August 6th Challenge
it’s Christina –
y’all. I had a wonderful time at the beach yesterday, but today it’s time to
buckle down and get the nine zillion things done that need to be done before
vacation. But first a few shameless plugs… Look what I got:
wasn’t it worth pulling my hair out to reach 50K words. :PJust kidding, I really did enjoy the writing
camp and I will try to participate in future ones. I usually do well when
did yesterday’s challenge bring back any memories for you? I know it did for
me. Sorry, short and sweet today, but lots to do. Have a wonderful day and
Your Last Challenge was:
This may look innocuous to you, a
simple childhood toy, but for me, it was monumental. It was my first taste of
freedom. On this “toy” I became Mario Andretti winning the Indy 500, Evil Knievel
jumping the Grand Canyon, and a fighter pilot breaking the sound barrier. I was
the crazy lunatic kid flying down the sidewalk at mach speed putting the lives
of anyone who crossed my path in peril.
The first things to disappear were the
flowing tassels, then the seat and pedals cracked, and finally the plastic
tires simply disintegrated. It was a sad day when my Big Wheel was brought out
to the curb for trash pick-up. A part of my childhood was over, because there
was no money to buy a replacement, but the memories of two magical summers will
remain with me for a lifetime.
Next Challenge is:
wish I knew what he/she was thinking…
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.
