The Sunday Salon - Writing Challenge with LHA - August 2010

Laurie Halse Anderson, author of Speak, Wintergirls, Fever 1793, Chains and other books, is hosting her third Write Fifteen Minutes A Day (WFMAD) Challenge.  Anderson will be sharing daily prompts and/or tips to help get your creative juices flowing and will offer some giveaways, including an ARC of the upcoming FORGE which is the sequel to CHAINS!

Every once in a while I dream of being a writer.  I wish I could make someone forget who they were because they were so immersed in a world that I created.  I want to have the ability to make people in books seem more real than the people around you.  Barring that, maybe I could write short stories or magazine articles.  It would be neat to see people reading, and enjoying, something I created.

But, ultimately, I know that thinking about writing is not the same as writing.  So, I thought I'd test my mettle and write 15 minutes a day for one month and take-up Laurie's challenge.  At the end of the month, I'll decide my next step.  Laurie Halse Anderson has devised some guidelines and is encouraging everyone to go for a walk to get their thoughts in focus. So, I'm off for some brain exercise!

So, what are some dreams/goals you have?  
What can you do for one month, fifteen minutes a day, towards that goal? 
Well, let's get to it!


  1. That's the real test: what are you willing to do everyday to work toward that goal? Things we think we really want, all we have to do is still ourselves and be about it!


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
