The second phase of WRiTE CLUB has taken off this week. If you haven’t signed up to vote, it’s still not too late. Bouts started on Monday and are posted every weekday until next Thursday (9 bouts in total). You have until noon on Sunday, Sep 22 to vote on all 9 bouts. Yes, I am included in one of these bouts. No, I won’t say which one. The winners of these bouts (plus the top vote getter of the losers) then have to produce a new set of work in which they will be pitted against each other. Here's the link: http://dlcruisingaltitude.blogspot.com/. You must be on his list to vote. Just follow his instructions.
I enjoy this little competition because it shows me how other people write. I also like seeing the comments (critiques) some people give, showing me different tastes in genres. What one person hates, another loves. It’s really eye-opening, and quite the learning experience.
My writing has been going fairly well. Monday was crap, but over 500 words each day the rest of the week. Hope to do the same today. I think my story has finally cemented itself inside my brain. I’m actually waking up with ideas for scenes. I kind of missed that.
This weekend looks to be a cool one (highs in the sixties instead of the nineties). It figures, too. HS Football is tonight. Looks like I might need to bundle up. I wouldn’t have minded it still be a little bit warmer. Maybe I’ll get me some spiked coffee after the game. You got any suggestions? We’ll most likely go to Applebee’s.
Have a good weekend and don’t walk under any ladders!
