Day Nineteen: Don’t Stop the Rockin’
Today is a free writing day. Write at least four-hundred words, and once you start typing, don’t stop. No self-editing, no trash-talking, and no second guessing: just go. Bonus points if you tackle an idea you’ve been playing with but think is too silly to post about.
I guess I will start at the beginning. Rumi. He has been coming up in my life a lot recently. I should figure out who the heck he is first, then figure out what he has to say. I do like this quote….
“Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.” ― Rumi
This one is pretty good as well….
“Either give me more wine or leave me alone.” ― Rumi
For someone who lived in the 13th century a lot of his stuff makes sense today. Especially the wine one.
Okay enough of that crap. I am not looking for extra credit by tackling something I have been working on that is “too silly” Everything about me is silly in one way or another. I have been working on a couple of things that I hope to finish one day. I’ve been working so hard on Writing101 that I have been neglecting my Blog. LMAO!!!! or at least what I thought was going to be my blog.
I have a few unfinished master pieces. I think I may have my first installment of an angel series I want to try out. Writing about angels was not part of the plan when I started this blog. Life happens and things change.
Cool 250 words. Almost done LOL
Relationships are not one of my areas of expertise, yet I wicked want to write about them. I have experimented with writing about online relationship a bit, but I want to write about other relationships as well. Mother/daughter and husband and wife come to mind. Relationships with my beagle could be entertaining. But if you have never owned a beagle, you might not understand. Even after I explain it.
83 more words and I am done. I know that because in 4th grade I was taught about reciprocals. I bet they don’t even teach that math method today. I remember every day we would get the same quiz. Get a 100% on the quiz and no more quizzes. You got early recess instead. I had trouble getting that 100%. Did I mention it was timed? I knew my reciprocals I just didn’t them fast enough. Until one day my teacher watched me. I would go down one column, up the next, down again, and up the last. The teacher suggested I go only down. Top to Bottom. Wouldn’t you know it the next time I took the quiz I got 100%. You’d think I would have learned the life lesson of “taking suggestions” back then. NOPE took me another 35 years for that lesson to sink in.
Uh Oh 461 words. I know it said “at least” 400 words. I have no problem with that. I need help knowing when I am done. That 461 which is now 492 can easily morph into 1004. I wicked like the word “Morph” right now. I seem to be getting a lot of use out of it. 516 is a pretty good number too. But now that I said that the count has gone higher. See that it just went up again.
THE END (568)
