|On your mark, get set ... oh, crap!|
That's because the loverly Suze of Subliminal Coffee is instigating an unusual challenge, and I wanted to give all you writers out there a heads up. Beginning this week, she's initiating something called False Start Fridays. Each week this month, you're invited to trot out a snippet from one of your old, and maybe less than perfectly polished pieces of writing, and share it with the rest of us. That's right; we've all made our share of false starts. You know, that stuff we thought was gonna be great. Until it fizzled. Ideas that shriveled on the vine and went nowhere. Or maybe it's an essay or short story you wrote just for the fun of it. Maybe it isn't fit for publishing, but wouldn't it be kinda fun to pull some of those poor little orphans out of hiding and let them see the light of day again?
Here's your chance.
You can participate any or all Fridays this month. No pressure. Just have fun with it. It'd be nice if you popped over to Suze's blog to let her know you're gonna play. That way, she'll be sure to check out your resurrected orphan, and she can list your website on her blog so others can come visit your masterpiece, too. It'd also be nice if you mentioned the challenge on your blog. After all, the more participants, the merrier.
I'm gonna play this Friday. Who knows? Maybe every Friday. But since I realize not all of my followers are writers or give a good diddle about reading my old drivel, I'll be posting a regular post on Fridays, in addition to the bonus one for the False Start.
Sound good? Well, are you in????
Until next time, take care of yourselves. And each other.
