Why The Blog?

This blog is my attempt at becoming a writer.  I recently bought the Kindle eBook “1,000 Creative Writing Prompts: Ideas for Blogs, Scripts, Stories and More” by Bryan Cohen.  I have committed, for each of the next 30 days, to randomly select three prompts and write on one of those prompts.  If you’re reading the entries, that means I forget to make them private.  So be gentle!

June 25, 2011.  Two things to keep in mind as you read these, but that I especially must keep in mind as I write them:

      1. Purpose.  My reason for writing these exercises is to loosen my creative muscles, to try different genres and enjoy a creative outlet.  To get my creative juices flowing.
      2. Expectations.  I am not Wally Lamb or Stephen King.  I may not ever be.  But I still gain from this expressive experiment.
I will write at least 200 words per exercise.  I do not intend that each exercise lead to a best-selling novel, or a novel of any level.  I’m just getting the creative juices flowing.
UPDATE:  As you may have noticed, I have not kept up on my creative writing exercise.  But I’m grateful that it at least got me started.  So, it’s progress!
