Hi everyone! This post is what I have written for Day 16 of the Writing 101 class.
The title of the assignments is “Mine your own Material.”
“Take a peek in the drafts section . . . Can you see any unpublished copy in any way?”
I took a peek at my writing drafts for this blog.
I see daily prompts, quite a few half finished, half written. Left forgotten.
I see the characters January and February written down. New blog posts? Perhaps a Turn the Page 5 post?
I see my haiku written down on a piece of paper from a post I wrote this past winter titled Somewhere in Time . Why did I write that down? Was I going to expand on the story? Or was it because it was one of my favorites?
As I stroll along on a path with my unfinished drafts, I also touch upon a second writing prompt for this assignment.
“Tell us about a time you’ve left an object, place, person, or even an idea behind and had to move on.”
The answer is sewing on this blog. No more tutorials as I left sewing behind and walked toward a writing blog. A big step for me – no more fabric as my header photo!
So I think back through the years to now, to the sewing projects to new posts with just my writing, I turn to my unfinished drafts. And toward December for blogging!
