Today let’s have coffee at the table under the trees! I have a hammock for you and one for me for later if we want to move. I am having black coffee, as usual. What would you like from the cafe section of my kitchen?
Later today we are going to a White Sox game so I am very excited! The weather is supposed to be great.
While we are having coffee I will tell you this past week has been amazing for writing!
I wrote a breathless paragraph led by Kathy Fish in her Skillshare class. I am so glad I am able to learn from her now. If you have time, I would highly recommend the class. Skillshare is pretty easy to navigate. I have my longer class with her in July which I am anticipating happily but this is a good introduction.
I am writing a story a day. I have 5 including today. Today’s prompt is a 100 word story. This is harder than you think. I had 106 first and then I pared it down to 93. I worked it back up to 100!
I am writing 10 minutes a day with Sarah Selecky’s prompts which is stretching me in surprising ways.
I started on a specific writing manifesto.
While we are having coffee, I will tell you about some of the great reads from this past week’s Bradbury Trio.
Sarah Selecky’s short story: Go Manchura
While we are having coffee I will tell you I have had many creative sparks this week.
Three is the NEW Moon.
Do you need a refill on your coffee? I am going to get another.
While we are having coffee I will tell you I am loving the Superstars community through storyaday.org. Getting involved with this group has been a great thing for my writing life! You can get involved in the challenge by commenting on each day’s prompt at the site.
