This is the first of many evenings or morning is that I will sit down and write for 30 Min. The sessions will be scheduled and done every day in the month of September. I hope to continue the practice well beyond that. 30 min should be a doable goal. I dont’...

My First Short Story

Good evening… This is how I will start my story. The story of an uneventful night where noting really happened and no one did anything… Good evening… That is the end of my story…

Day 11 – The ONE Thing

SO what happened to the time? Where did it go? I don’t have a good answer for that question. Time is fleeting just like sand through and hourglass. These are the “days of our lives” 🙂 A little nostalgic humor for you . Should I write everyday? I...

Day 10 – Write about writing

This should be easy. I have done this for a while and only need to say what I am thinking. Of course a more structured approach would be better, but this will do for now. The concept of just getting words on the page seems to be the best way for me. Get it down and...

Day 9 – Teach Something

But what? I know this is a way to get us to try different styles of writing, but I cant seem to come up with anything. Should I fake it until I make it? Does that even work? There is a fear for me that just came up. What if I get called out on the topic? What if my...
