So it’s been a busy year, what with a wedding and school and…hmm, what else?  I forget.  But the end result is not a lot of writing. New Year’s resolutions are made to be broken, but I’m a sucker for failure so I’m trying it anyway: every morning, get up early, get the blood flowing, and write something, dammit!

So far, I’m 1 for 1…364 rounds left in this fight!

This morning it was a Writer’s Digest contest entry, with participants asked to write a 25-word or less opening sentence to a story based upon this photo:


I did, and we’ll know in a few months whether my 21 words were worth a damn.  Not only do the editors of WD have a go at it, but then they select a few, post them online, and regular people like you and me vote for it.  So maybe I’ll be asking for a favor sometime soon.  I know you’re good for it.

Feel free to write your own 25-Or-Less below!
