I never could resist a challenge…Day 1

…and so I won’t walk away from this one.  You can read all about it by visiting my friend’s blog.  And so, I pick up the gauntlet she has thrown. All I can say is, that it’s a good thing I’ve got several half-finished essays sitting in my queue.

Real gauntlets

You see, I know that it will be good for me.  I have been a writer longer than I have been a musician, and writing, just like music, must be practiced.  And I’m just not that good at practicing.  So maybe a nudge from my community of faith and friendship will get me going. 

So, if you are out there reading this and you have a blog, pick up your keyboard and follow!  And just remember the wise words of Julia Cameron, writer, teacher, and the author of The Artist’s Way and other inspiring works: 

 I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow.

Here’s looking forward to many marvelous things!
