Writing About Writing

I’d said I wouldn’t join the Writers of Kern annual Dan McGuire Blog Challenge this year. I was too busy. But the more I thought about it, the idea came to me that signing up would help me be more accountable to my writing practice. So I’m in.

Practice. That’s what it is. And sometimes what a person practices turns into something good. We’ll see. What I’m going to do is write. No expectations except to get something down on the page. If anything can later be transformed (read “revised, edited and tweaked”) into a piece that makes a point or expresses an idea or demonstrates beauty, I will be happy.

Writing for the sake of writing. That’s contrary to anything I’ve done before. But I’m gonna try it. Wish me luck.
