hey folks. Today is the day. Well technically Friday is the day the Pre-Writing Challenge starts. Today I plan to raid my old notebooks and search out all of the bits of paper that I can find with any sort of writing idea on it.
I should have enough ideas to fill my challenge list and much more. I was reading through some papers that I had in a box a while ago. Most of them were drafts of projects from high school and different writing projects that I have done. I looked at these and said, “I should rewrite this one”. I have a few stories like that. I am going to rework some of them and maybe they can be published.
I have one set that I have always loved. It is a first person detective comedy that is filled with rampant sarcasm but not very good writing. I have 4 stories in the series that get better and better. I always thought they could be published together as the ZXC Chronicles. I have notes for part 5, I think I am going to rewrite that whole thing.
If that same box there are several little notes with band names, story ideas, snippets of song lyrics and words that sounded good together at one time. Many of these snippets could be blog posts and some could be quite good or quite profound. Maybe just something funny. I think that as part of the Pre Writing Challenge I will try some different styles of posts. Funny, ironic, list, classical hungarian, ok maybe not that one. I am going to use this challenge to not only write more, but to expand the depth of my writing, which is one of the reasons I started blogging in the first place.
Short one today, have to get the munchkin to the hospital for tests. Kidney Transplant doctors are paranoid when fevers top 102 degrees.
