Famous Writer or Just Another Blogger

There has been some chatter online from different people who want to be writers. Some want to work on some big newspaper or magazines across the country, some want to write a novel, some want to work in businesses writing grants/policies or whatever a business needs written.

Looking through a my old blog posts, I found a couple about writing..so if you missed them, the links are below. Unfortunately I have not really been writing the way I wanted. Yes obviously I still have the blog that you’re reading, but all the ideas I have for any book are still just ideas in my head.



My 5th & 6th grade English teacher used to have a box of little 1″ X 1″ pictures cut out of magazines. We had to pick out a picture and write a 2-page story about the picture. I used to love that assignment and always got a good grade on my stories.

Here try it…




Ok, now pick one of the 3 pictures above and tell a story about them.

  1. #2-. “What are you doing?” asked Jed, “It’s a Yard Sale not a Garden Party.”. “I know.” Shell responded, “But, everything is so cute and you need to make the customers want them. You know, I might just keep the duck.”. ” No! Set it up, and be done.” Jed ordered. “I am going to put up the signs “. Jed took off in his truck. What a horrible idea this was. Shell was a hoarder and their house was overflowing. Everything was priced so high, they’d be taking it all home anyway. They needed the money to fix the tractor or he wouldn’t be able to farm and they would lose it all. They needed a miracle. After putting up the signs, Jed returned. But wait! Was he at the right place? The tables were empty and Shell was standing behind one holding the duck. “What in tarnation!” Jed roared “Did you put all that crap back in the car? You know we needed that money! I just put signs everywhere!”. The tears fell, as Shell listened to her husband rant. Finally, as he took a breath, she took his hand and placed an envelope in it. “It was a miracle.” She stated, “A traveling caravan arrived right after you left and they bought everything!’. Jed was speechless as he counted the money. Five hundred dollars. Exactly enough to fix the tractor. Along with a note that read, ‘We wish you best of luck in your future. Love and blessings from all.’. Jed hugged Shell, as they both reeled from their good fortune. “I am sorry for yelling.” he stated. “Let’s go home, so I can get the tractor fixed and get to work.’. “Uh Jed?” Shell said, tentatively, “Yes, my love?”. “I hope it’s okay but, I kept the duck.”
