“There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now.”
In case Mom’s weekly writing challenge isn’t challenging enough this month, her writing group named LindaVijiConnieLaurieJenandOtherJen is also having a June Challenge. Everybody in the group is working on a new (or old) story and posting new versions each week for everybody to look at and share about. Ready or not!
Mom had a new story already started with 2 pathetic sentences. Two sentences! It sat there and sat there till the challenge. Now it is getting attention and making progress. It’s pretty lame, but it’s getting better.
Speaking of lame- I sniffed this gigantic, weird mushroom outside this weekend. I checked underneath it to see if any sprites or fairies lived there. They do not. It’s just a big, nasty mushroom – serving no purpose.
Mom thinks my street naps serve no purpose, but I say street naps warm me up.
Ditto my sidewalk naps,
and naps under cars.
I think learning new tricks serves no purpose, but Mom says tricks help my tiny brain stay sharp.
So I bowl,
and ring my bell for cookies.
I guess purpose is relative. In Mom’s stories, her characters have to have purpose. So do their actions. Maybe they should take a street nap…
