DRY SPELL

Hi everyone... I hope you're all doing well and looking forward to the weekend. I've been looking through my book of daily writing exercises, and can't seem to find one of late that interests me. I'll keep trying, though. I may go back and do a re-write of Mary's story. This time, from her point of... Sign in to see full entry.

SORROW

Hi everyone... I hope you all had a great day. We had a blast at the moive. If I may, I need to ask for prayers for Jim's wife, Ann. Her father passed away yesterday. As Ann's parents live in Spain, they'll be leaving early in the morning to spend some time with her Mum after the funeral service.... Sign in to see full entry.

MORE OF MARY'S STORY

I work as an art teacher by night. By day, I’m the proprietor of a bakery called MARY’S LITTLE LAMB. I got the name for the place one night when I was unpacking in my new house. I was riffling through a box of old college mementos when I found her. My favourite toy and best friend from childhood. A... Sign in to see full entry.

A NEW EXERCISE, BUT AN OLD PIECE

SUBWAY MARY Every morning, I park my car in the upper garage and board the subway downtown for work. Every morning, she sits there across from the platform. No one really seems to notice her. Or if they do, they walk on pretending they don’t. She sits there on the pavement with a big empty plastic... Sign in to see full entry.

EPILOGUE

EPILOGUE In the very early hours of a late November morning, Miriam and her parents made it across the boarder into Switzerland. They were headed for the town of Maienfeld. It took them five hours to travel from Leipzig. But they made it. Several times over her life, Miriam wondered how it was that... Sign in to see full entry.

OUR STORY CONCLUDES

Eight o’clock. One hour more, and Miriam will be forced to leave the home she has known since early childhood forever. She’ll have to leave her best friend and her school and her teachers. Life will never be the same. “You should go to your room and have one more look around, Miriam,” Mamichen... Sign in to see full entry.

TIME IS RUNNING OUT

Mamichen looks up, the colour suddenly gone from her face. Miriam holds her mother’s arm tightly. Papa stands up, but doesn’t walk to the door. It’s only six fifteen. The Frielbergs won’t arrive for another fifteen minutes. The door bell sounds again. This time, more urgently. “Who could it be,... Sign in to see full entry.

BOUNCING BUNDLE OF JOY

Well, I'm a great-aunt again... Baby Bently Jameson arrived yesterday afternoon, just after four o'clock. A week late, but Mum and baby are doing well. Sign in to see full entry.

THE STORY CONTINUED

Where is God now? It’s nearly six o’clock. They will leave in half an hour. Miriam’s best friend, Diana, is coming with her parents. Herr and Frau Frielberg have arranged for them to go to Switzerland. The plan is that at six thirty, they will come and help Mamichen and Papa close up the house. No... Sign in to see full entry.

WRITING EXERCISE FROM 30 AUGUST

I'll explain the exercise in more detail later, but for now, here is the beginning of what I've written. Twelve year old Miriam pulls on her thick coat and the navy blue hat with the white trim. She looks down for a moment. If only she didn’t have to leave! But she does have to go. And it’s all... Sign in to see full entry.

TODAY'S WRITING EXERCISE

Well, I gave it my best shot. I didn't write a story so to speak, as the exercise suggested, but I think some of you might still enjoy what I've done here. I'm not sure I'm thrilled with it myself, but at least I gave it a go. Mother Moon and Father Sun have had enough of the human beings. When life... Sign in to see full entry.

SCHOOL DAYS

Happy first of September, my friends! It's a beautiful day here. Much too beautiful to be spending time in a classroom with teachers! Even so, kids here headed back to school today. So, the summer holidays have officially ended for them, even though the season hasn't officially come to an end yet.... Sign in to see full entry.
