PAMELA JO BOWMAN – MESA ARIZONA – A group of friends have agreed to write something every day. A thought, a poem, a journal entry. In the agreement, it doesn’t matter what it is as long as we write something. We are not hesitant to let each other know what we think about what we’re producing. We especially love pointing out typos and other errors. I, of course, am the queen of grammatical mistakes. We won’t even discuss my spelling issues.
The other day, I found out my husband has been reading this blog and my other unpublished writings. This was after I offered to let him read something. His comment? “You are letting people read your writing now?” Good thing I am since he had already read them.
Yes, I am letting others read some of my stuff. You for instance. For me, this is tremendous progress.
So, to build our writing muscle, we continue to write every day just as we (should) walk every day. It is our exercise. It is neccesary. And most interesting of all … I really like it.
