Managed to write again today. Writing EVERY day is not happening now because I am just too busy. That said….
Attended a writers’ critique group last night. I very much enjoyed watching the process. To be sure, they were an interesting group. 2 months ago
I had a story published for the first time here
and I started to write again this week
I re wrote a story. it has a better ending but I’m still not happy with it. 2 months ago
This dropped off altogether for me, but I plan to knock out another 500 words today. I am starting to think about writing small “howto” type primers for sale in the Amazon Marketplace and Smashwords…..
Addendum: 535 words written; most of it about using 43 Things to focus my writing! 3 months ago
Was doing this, but somehow it got knocked out of my routine. 1000 words a day proved too much, so 500 seems to work better. But, the big deal seems to be keeping the habit. It is tough sometimes. 4 months ago
not every day but 4 to 5 days a week and the whole three pages for over a month now. Since the end of april anyway.
This will always be a work in progress, but I feel I’ve made a good start.
I’ve worked on some of my longer pieces.
I’ve worked more on the memoir.
I’m happy with this right now. 5 months ago
As soon as I have some spare cash, I’m going to become a patron at 750.words.
It’s really helping me. I’m doing it finally, just doing it. 7 months ago
i started to use this site again. I like the badges. I get a prize for writing, I write more.
i couldn’t keep it up in my Penzu journal alone. I find that once I write my 750 words, cr** words mostly, I then do go to Penzu and write again.
So I recommend 750words.com for those of you who are finding they have a hard time writing consistently.
Now to take my own advice…bye bye 7 months ago
Seriously. Any real suggestions?? thanks! 8 months ago
I am not the best writer. This goal will allow me to use new words and increase the amount I read. 8 months ago
Here are my letters and cubes for today. p,e,a,v,ed..cubes..a dice, a scale, a light bulb, a key, a keyhole, a magnet, a magic wand, a castle, a smiley face
I am peeved ,some people say, pissed off, but I don t use that term cause I never could understand what it meant. I am mad about the fact that this website has thousands of my sentences here and some day someone will use them to fill a book with and will make much money and neither I nor my family will receive any of it.
When on throw a die, there is no scale to measure the outcome of the toss. A light bulb might go off in one s head and a key to the keyhole of some problem might begin to be solved. A lucky person may feel as if he,she had a magic wand to wave over his,her castle and smiles will appear on everyone s face. take care..joe 9 months ago

I had a dilemma while in line to buy some milk today. I was to buy two half gallons for one dollar each but they were out so I bought a full gallon. I knew my wife would not like this an as I predicted, she said..oh god.. when I told her I had the gallon. Each time I spend a nickel I have to hear a sermon about how I could have spent it better.
It would take a magnifying class, a calculator , a fallen star, a sheep, 12 pearls, a parachute, a rainbow , a new house and a shiny apple to keep a woman somewhat happy. 9 months ago
I have 7 dice with letters of the alphabet on each side. I roll them and see what words or sentences I can come up with..today s roll = A bad lad moc k s u,,You,, whenever you try to play chess. I have 9 cubes with pictures upon them.. I roll them and try to write a story with the results. today s story..Lighting stuck my house last night. I was outside and had locked myself out. This made me sad but I hoped for a rainbow in the sky so as to help me find my way in the confusing world of the dark. There were many ways to enter my house without causing too much harm but I had to pick one. My hand gropped along the wall, I found an opened window and let myself in..finish this story readers.. take care..joe 9 months ago
I made another goal of completing “The Artist’s Way”, and I am writing every day because I’m doing the Morning Pages for that goal. It is going very well, but I’ve been off work all last week, so it was easy. Now that I go back to work tomorrow, it will be more of a challenge to drag myself out of bed a little earlier, so I can do my Morning Pages. I am committed though.
Now if I could only get some writing done on my novel! That’s been on the back burner since I’ve been setting up my freelance business. I will get back to it though. Once I complete some of these other writing oriented goals, I will have to make my novel more of a priority. 10 months ago
