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.

September 7th Challenge
Is there anybody out there? Just POST if you can hear me.
Hi, it’s Christina –
over 125 blog posts, I’m still left wondering if anyone is reading these,
taking the challenges, benefiting in any way from these posts. I do get
comments from folks every now and then, but I have no real way of knowing,
really knowing, what you guys think of the blog.
I just writing for a dozen people or are they the only ones brave enough to
post comments? It there something you want more of? Less of? Different prompts?
Certain types of prompts you enjoy more than others? Do you like it? Hate it? In
other words, I am in need of feedback.
started this blog to help YOU get YOUR creativity flowing. To help YOU write,
but without feedback, I feel like all this is a warm-up exercise to get me
writing for the day. Please let me know your thoughts and opinions.
Your Last Challenge was:
What did you say?
Whether it’s just normal aging or way
too many concerts during my youth, I find myself asking “What did you say?”
more and more often. My children were becoming quite exasperated with me until
I started telling them what I thought I heard them say. Now it has become a
source of hysterical laughter as opposed to frustration, because the difference
in what I hear and what was actually said vary so dramatically, it’s quite
comical at times.
As an example, my daughter called
yesterday, and during the conversation she said she was getting used to her
professors. I did not hear “professors” I heard “food processors”. In my defense,
my youngest daughter heard something completely different and at the same time
we both asked “What did you say?” It took several attempts before we understood
what my daughter had said, and when we got it, we all started laughing.
I could have gone on and on with things
I had thought I had heard people say; none of which made sense, making me stop
and ask “What did you say?” or “I have no idea what you just said.” if the
reply is so completely disjointed I cannot make any sense of it. Luckily I know
spotty cell service is a major culprit in the issue and not just my old abused
OK, places to go, things to do. Go out
there and enjoy your Saturday. Hopefully the weather by you is as glorious as
it is by me. I hope you have a wonderful day, and happy writing!
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.
