Serious writing takes so much outta me. I don’t know why that is. I obsess over every word, every cadence, every thought, like it means life or death sometimes. I need a diversion to keep the juices flowing and it occurred to me that since I’ve always wanted to write a book on a serious non-fiction subject that I should try my hand at short story writing. Blogging isn’t sufficient training for some reason and I need something more. For some reason the blogging becomes work and I rarely post without some form of inspiration. The words hafta sing to me. Loudly. Do you have any short story ideas for a contest I’d like to enter in the future. Let me know. Be as general or as detailed as you’d like.
