I'm the type of person who really doesn't want people to think I'm unhappy. For the most part, I'm the one making sure everybody is laughing and having a good time. I've been accused of being very goofy at times, but hey... if the shoe fits, I'll wear it. Being the class clown is a big responsibility and once you've been dubbed... you better deliver. Nothing drives people crazier than a sad clown!
I dream of the day I will swing my leg over the iron saddle again, but in the meantime... I've been giving some serious consideration to my writing. I enjoyed creative writing in high school, so I decided the way I was going to kick the sad clown to the curb was to get busy!
As I mentioned in a previous post, I started following fellow blogger, Donna over at 2 Taking a 5th. She posted about a fiction writing contest on Indies Unlimited, a blog comprised of independent authors. I entered my first writing competition a couple weeks ago and just posted my second this past Saturday. I would like to invite you to take a look at the entries, as some of them are quite good. We all like a good short story, right? This is a great way to enjoy a good read and show your support to some very talented writers that just want to get their words out there. Like me!
Please follow the link below and vote for who you think has the best story. Poll closes on Thursday at 5:00 PM MST.. Thanks!
Giving up my motorcycle has not been the easiest thing to adjust to, and in spite of remaining committed to my decision not to ride without Harley, it has not been without intermittent episodes of my own remorse. However, I've been looking back on this blog and discovered that I missed telling stories. Stories about places and life on two wheels, with words of passion and poetry.
It took a bit of time, but I realized one thing. The subject material may change, but the joy of writing doesn't have to stop. I have new dreams and new goals and I'm excited about something again.
I'm excited about writing...
it makes me happy.
I'm excited about finding my nitch...
the class clown is back.
