Can you believe it? Creative Copy Challenge is up to #86! Give it a try; it’s fun and builds writing muscle.
My own body and mind is telling me that I’ve worked hard this week. I’m feeling a bit stale. I think that’s why the ubiquitous ‘they’ invented weekends. To give us a change to regenerate, to re-create ourselves.
I was tempted to run off and find more word games or other computer based activities to list here when I heard my soul whisper something like “get out doors!”
“Ah ha!” I thought; I’ll create a writing exercise around doing something outside.
Then Mark Silver who has remarkable resources for any writer or other creative tweeted me reminding me of the carousel ride he and I and a couple of friends shared on the wonderful 1910 merry-go-round in Balboa Park in San Diego.
That’s the sort of fun I need, a total break in routine.
This weekend I’m going to take a long stroll on the beach down at Ocean Beach. It will probably be raining and I love the Pacific in the rain. I might even talk a teenage grandkid to come with me, or not.
