Writing 101 Day Five: Be Brief
You discover a letter on a path that affects you deeply. Today, write about this encounter. And your twist? Be as succinct as possible.
I heard a knock at the door and then running feet. Someone had pushed a note under the door. The note was addressed to “Babe.”
My curiosity took over and I couldn’t resist reading the note: “I should have told you this a long time ago. My HIV test results came back and I’m…” The word is unreadable due to smudged ink.
My heart begins to beat fast! Who is this note for? I have two roommates and at one time or another our boyfriends have called us “Babe.”
I quickly dial my boyfriend’s number and receive his voice mail. Oh, I forgot he’s in his big meeting today about his scholarship. I text him – CALL ME ASAP! I text my roommates 911 – COME HOME NOW!
I’m participating in Blogger University on WordPress. Blogger University is a great, free resource providing to WordPress.com bloggers to enhance their skills and expertise in blogging. The course started on April 15th, and I am a few days behind. However, I am determined to complete the course. My first assignment is to introduce myself and discuss why I am blogging.
This year was finally the time my blogging dreams became a reality. I have been saying for years I was going to start a blog. I finally stopped saying it and completed actions to start my blog. I’m blogging publicly because I wanted to share my thoughts, insight and feelings with others. Having a personal journal wouldn’t fulfil my need of wanting to dialogue with others about my blog.
I will be writing about life lessons, my thoughts on various current events, my experience in writing resumes and looking for a job, encouragement and motivation; and just whatever is impressed on me to discuss on any particular day.
I would love to connect with other positive bloggers and people who have an opinion about any and every thing.
