I have heard - or read on here - from 6 different writers on how the doldrums have silenced their muse this month. This will not do. I am taking action. She Who Must Be Obeyed doesn't like it, nor do I.

Here is the latest, depression combating challenge, for you to jolt you back into writing. Ms Woodbury wants you to follow this link, and she has ways on checking to see if you do.

Check it out!

Oh! Yes, of course! Yes, she does.

Interesting I thought about not doing it since I'm not depressed. Well, maybe a tiny bit(I really mean that) on a couple of fronts. I have to work through lunch for the next two weeks of work and can't write on my Angel Kin novel, no good news on my writing, and something that is a bit more private.

But a couple of those lines call me... at last count three.

And I had two good opening lines last week ... now if I can remember either of them.

Rats, never got to posting my first line.


As I said before some of those lines sounded verrry interesting.
