Back to Normal

That is, I did not write a lot during the month of October. I can’t say I’m surprised. I know what works and what doesn’t. I know that I meet my writing goals when I write regularly, and since I didn’t write regularly, I’m not happy with how little I wrote. It would be too mortifying to actually tally it. So I won’t.

On the plus side, I’ve proved the converse about writing regularly. Again. Plus, I almost wrote on time this morning, so maybe I’m getting back on track. We’ll see.

  1. I managed to get my entry in for a Halloween-themed writing contest at the last minute. The judging hasn’t happened yet, so we’ll see.

    I went to a storytelling night on Halloween… I thought I was going to be sittin’ in the audience, but they called for volunteers from the peanut gallery. I made one up on the spot. Turns out … prizes were going to be awarded for that! I tied for first, and got a substantial purse. And I owe it all to you. Well, not all. Some, though. Thanks.

  2. Oh, I give you the right amount of credit *chuckles*. Most credit goes to me, some credit goes to the fellow who told the story of his haunted car (I’ve gotten a lot of mileage out of that over the years, retelling it at least a dozen times), and some credit goes to the guy who abandoned his typewriter. Some credit goes to you.

    At college, a graduating senior left his typewriter in a public place in the student housing. During the summer (between my junior and senior years), someone rolled in a sheet of paper and began a collaborative story. Anyone could sit down and type something.

    I sat down. I typed something. Prior to this event, I’d had zero writing ability. I wish I’d gained a writing ability a lot sooner. School would have been much less of a struggle if I had!

    I added on to the story of a handsome young knight, a wicked witch, some curses, and some quests. I wonder whatever happened to those pages. Ah well!

    These days, I have a writing ability, but zero creativity. Life is good but not perfect. In response to questions on Yahoo Answers by Miss Sunshine, I’ve been writing a semi-fictionalized version of my autobiography. Here’s a link to one segment:
