Day Four of Writing 101 got a little dark with its prompt (and it’s title — The Serial Killer):
Write about a loss: something (or someone) that was part of your life, and isn’t any more.
This doesn’t need to be a depressing exercise; you can write about that time you lost the three-legged race at a picnic. What’s important is reflecting on this experience and what it meant for you — how it felt, why it happened, and what changed because of it.
Today’s twist: Make today’s post the first in a three-post series.
Which is why I’m going to ignore that whole part about writing about a loss – not that I won’t write about it later – but am going to run with the idea of a serial.
You’ll notice a new page will appear on my blog the same time this posts does with a list of Features. These are recurring topics for blog posts I’m planning to get started with, well, tomorrow. This will provide me some much-needed structure and direction for this blog because without either I’m likely to post about as often as I did on my previous blogs (which averages to once a month over the last 15 years).
See you tomorrow.
