I couldn't really think of anything clever or shocking to call this writing blog.
Sometimes simple clinches it.
I used to run a library writing club called "Write On!"
Yes, I thought of that name.
Don't shoot me.
I submitted quite a few names to the library manager and it seems the cheesiest one was chosen. Little did I know...
My other submissions...
"All the Write Stuff",
"Mightier Than The Sword",
"Moving Write Along",
"Get This Write"
...and a host of other cliché phrases. Who would have thought the one I threw in last for a joke would win?
I suppose the library wanted to appeal to a certain clientele.
I deferred to the manager acknowledging that she had her finger on the pulse of the community more than I did. (Although she had been the manager for 2 months and came from a completely different district and I had been there for a year and a half - but who's splitting hairs?? It's a corporate thing, I get it.)
So what's happening here?
Here's where I share my on-going or previously published, performed and produced works.
Prose, song lyrics, television and play script excerpts, published article excerpts or whatever I'm working on at the time will appear...
(Dang, that's one I didn't think of until now. Ugh..)
...expect the unexpected.
Most of my work has a decided comedic bend.
I do some cathartic writing, too.
Some is dramatic, and typically that depends on resource material, as is the case of my play based on letters from my great-uncles to their sister and mother (my grandmother and great grandmother) during World War II. Some of THAT is funny, too, but most is poignant, sad and rife with loneliness. I found the letters at the bottom of my grandmother's closet after she died. They were tucked away like a dirty secret. Truly the appearance of skeletons in her closet.
The comedy play is based on two dear friend and me in early middle age. Sometimes it's a farce...and sometimes pure melodrama.
So stick around or come back and visit.
It's time to "Turn the Page".
(Damn, there's another one I didn't think of.)
