Getting in the Write frame of mind...

Now that the major stress of nursing school is behind me, I'm trying to find my way through the new stress of a new job, a new career, and the sometimes seemingly-impossible challenge of being a new nurse. Most of all, I'm desperate to get back into a routine that allows for both working (and working extra), and still spending time on doing the things I love, like writing and running.

The running part is proving more difficult (spending 13+ hours on my feet doesn't incline me to want to run the next morning), but the writing part I'm hoping to get back on track soon.


A lot of people in the writing/blogging world know DL Hammons. I had the distinct pleasure of having breakfast with him and his lovely wife a couple years ago, when they were in town for a football game. DL has been hosting WRiTE Club for 2 years, this being the third.

WRiTE Club is a fun, simple, head-to-head weekly challenge between anonymous pieces of 500 word fiction, judged by the readers.

And there's an ultimate prize!

I think I'm throwing my hat into the ring this year.

Why not give it a bout?

Best of luck to you...and thank you for helping to spread the word!

PS. I could be heading to Atlanta again in July. Might be time for another breakfast! :)

Woohoo! That is fabs. I am wavering. Considering taking part but I bottled out last year so who knows mmmm.

Woo hoo! I submitted my WRiTE CLUB entry last week. I have no idea if it's good enough to make the cut, but i guess we'll find out!

Your comment on yesterday's Write club bout (about loving fantasy) caught my eye so I followed it here to find that YOU'VE HUNG OUT WITH DL?? He's like a superstar!
Good luck during Write club. I hope I haven't said unforgivable things about your entry!
