If I had all the time in the world to do all that I wanted to do in this world, it would come to 2 things – running and writing.
Yeah okay, binge watching Suits comes a close third.
My boss rang me the other day to praise me on an email I had written to a client.
She also mentioned that she had forwarded it on to my colleague who wants to use it as a template for the entire sales team.
“I told her you were a writer, anyway…” she beams. The fatal mistake of telling your boss you blog.
Ha! If a mundane business letter makes me a writer…well, then…
Pulling out a pile of old notebooks, I found one from almost exactly a year ago.
The illustrious writer and published author, Karen Andrews started a Mini Nanowrimo challenge setting up a prompt for each day. Do you remember it?
Here’s one little extract from the journal:
Prompt: The Beach
Precariously, they tiptoed to the edge – the precipice of where the foamy waves reached the shore.
Their little toes tickled as soon as the icy cold water chased and caught them.
“Look Mama! The waves can’t catch me!!!” he squealed in ultimate delight.
She sat back on the sand, soaking in the sun and their handsome smiles.
One day my dear boy, she pondered, it won’t be the waves chasing you.
Of course, the lazy undisciplined writer in me didn’t complete the challenge but reading this and other prompts, did bring back some wonderful memories.
Hope that maybe, one day…I will have all the time in the world. And if I don’t, I’ll somehow make it.
Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year? Are you a Suits fan? Ever had one of your work emails go viral?
