Writing Diary #1

It’s lonely writing for the literary contest and it reminds me of doing report cards (gag). Checking on my reader stats for my tea break tonight I was so encouraged by an increase in numbers and some supportive comments that I want to contribute a little update  to the blog world  each day until my binge of writing for said contest runs out. I hope you will continue to check in with me as I go along this journey. I have a month to write something good enough to submit. I think it will drive me bonkers not being able to share it with anyone online. So far today I finished one draft and it is nice and long so I can edit it with glee.It is boring so I need to  deal with that. I’ve added a little gentle humour which is my trademark and downfall. The printer is not working so I can’t get at it with a hard copy which frustrates me as I like to edit my first draft while I’m out and about people watching and wasting time drinking coffee at the local restaurant. I’ve pulled a big wing back chair over to my computer desk and piled on several cushions to alleviate numbness. An extra lamp is angled at my notes which I had the foresight to jot down to use as a basis for this first story for the contest. It’s a dark and stormy night…..
