The author wannabe in me will never be satisfied as long as I have a thought in my head. I thrive on challenges. When I was in high school and working a graveyard shift for a food service company, a co-worker challenged me to write a song. I asked her what the song should be about, and her next words were, “My uniform is dirty,” as she brushed away a mess on her work smock. I said, “Great, that will be the first line in the song.” The next day I wrote a country and western song titled “Is Our Love Gone.”
I recently wrote a song for Martin Guitar’s “Love of my Lifespan” contest. Hardly got any votes and didn’t win anything other than the satisfaction that I wrote a song. (Want to see the video – it’s here “They Call Me Martin” – not the best video quality, but maybe that’s something I’ll work on next).
The things I am working on – whether short stories entered in writing contests or poetry, or the beginnings of the Great American Novel – can be found on my other blog here It’s About Prose.
so … give me a challenge …
