#24 - I would never write...

Sometimes writers find themselves writing what comes easily for them. If we are good at or believe in something we can write tomes. If we are bad at something or we find it difficult we don't bother. So this Sunday, the assignment is to write something that you never thought you would write. Push your boundaries. Test the waters. If you find it easy to write, you haven't pushed hard enough. Perhaps you are a fiction writer and you feel strongly that you will never write a self-help book. Perhaps you are a complete non-fiction person who is afraid of fantasy. Maybe you have decided that you will never ever write about your childhood. Tell us about it. Tell us why. Or write it anyway. What is it that you never ever thought you would write?

PLEASE READ THIS: even if you are sure you are doing it right, please look at this post regarding perma-links. We go on about it every week because if you don't do it we have triple the work to do on the links. Some of you have always done it (thank you!!) Some of you have recently figured it out (thank you!) And some of you are still not doing it right -

Good luck and happy scribbling!!

Hello.....I am a new visitor here. I found your blog to be rather interesting and you have some questions in your entries which got me to thinking. I keep a journal titled Dear Diary at AOL J-Land which is just something which helps me to clear my head. I really do like your blog its very great writing.
