Exercising Write

All Signed Up!

Written By: Charlene L. Amsden - Oct• 21•11

I have just signed up for NaNoWriMo — National Novel Writing Month.  My goal is to write a complete 50,000 word novel in a month.  To make my goal I will have to write 1666 words per day.  I am going to target 2000 words per day.  I would rather write too many than too few, and this way if there is a power outage or some other technical crisis, I will have some wiggle room.

If you are participating in NaNoWriMo and would like to follow my progress, I am writing as Quilldancer.  If you aren’t participating in NaNoWriMo and would like to follow my progress, just visit this website. I will update my word count daily.

Wish me luck!

For My Trumpet Man

Trumpet man
blows his horn so sweetly
that the sea rolls in to listen
and even the moon yearns to touch him.

55 Flash Fiction ~ Skip It

Written By: Charlene L. Amsden - Oct• 14•11

55fff

After Jack’s family moved from Australia to America, Jack came home within an hour of being left in his first grade classroom. “These yanks are mental,” he said. “I ain’t no sheila and I’m not going back!”

“Whatever happened?” His mum asked.

“Teacher says I gotta skip to the loo!”
