My 2018 Self Defining Challenge

Find Out More Writing has been one of my passions since I wrote my first poem in second grade. I studied journalism in college, have had an article published in a local town newspaper and written lovely letters to friends. But what I have not done is dedicated any time to writing and challenging myself to see if I can actually write. Not to be published necessarily, bit really tallow my thoughts and feelings and humor to come alive on a blank page.[] So, I picked up a book called A Writers Book of Days – A Spirited Companion & Lively Muse for the Writing Life by Judy Reeves. The book helps a writer get into the practice of writing and offers a daily prompt to write about.
