As I warm up my fingers to start typing for NaNoWriMo, I have something new for you. Call it procrastination if you will - I'm calling it creativity.
I was reading a few tweets about writing, and I stumbled upon a reference to Hemingway that I had heard before, but never really thought about. After a little more digging, I found a whole blog dedicated to it: Six Word Stories. Here is how it is explained on the site: "In the 1920s, Ernest Hemingway’s colleagues bet him that he couldn’t write a complete story in just six words. They paid up. Hemingway is said to have considered it his best work." So what was his story?
Not willing to stop at one challenge, I've also signed up for NaBloPoMo - National Blog Posting Month. And as it sounds, the goal is to post to my blog once a day every day in November. The two challenges go hand-in-hand, and although November may be the worst month to try all of this (for many reasons, not the least of which is the beginning of the holiday season), I'm going to give it a shot.
Now, off to spend time with Lucie...
