1. I wrote this entry.
2. I wrote a short story (in my bathtub)
3. I wrote three paragraphs of what may become a new story. Very iffy at this point.
4. I revised said bathtub story by typing it out, printing it out, and then making written corrections.
I wrote an email to a guy telling him I'd be fifteen minutes late for music rehearsal tomorrow.
I wrote half a homework assignment - a description of the moment I learned to read.
And the beginning of another homework assignment that's making me think that my professor is asking questions that are too personal, even if they're supposedly going to get me thinking about writing and the teaching of writing.

I try to write something every day. Right now I'm on a "roll?" you know how sometimes it's almost impossible to write anything? Well, for the last couple of months, I've been doing a whole bunch of poetry. Not sure why, but while the muse is there, might as well take advantage of it. She won't, alas, stay around forever!

- I wrote an essay about a girl who trys to manage her life after her fathers death
- I wrote here at this Book Talk (Art is Life)
- Wrote a petite summary about a novel I had read a while ago
- I edited a whole story for my best friend
- I also edited an essay for my other best friend; again LOL

- Lastly, I wrote a small poem, just a couple of sentences (:
Thankss for listening !
What have I written today...
html code for my website...status updates for myspace/facebook...posts here on LT...a quiz on myspace...and most importantly, my attempt at laid back, no stress writing. It's in a notebook, so I don't have the ease of critiquing it and hating it so much.
Today I wrote a bunch of haiku and from them I made a longer poem. It was fun. I seem to be rediscovering the *fun* of writing lately.
I also wrote a critique of an MFA thesis and a few cryptic e-mails.
Anyway I figured I'd better write down everything I could think of, just to prove that there would be something to say.
I LIKE THIS.
Recently I googled my name and was stunned to find my doctoral dissertation (from 1987!) quoted and footnoted in a monograph from University of Aberdeen. I'm thinking of buying the book, but it costs $200, coming from E. J. Brill press. Still thrilled to find that my work from the past was "relevant" and now finds a little life in a published scholarly work.
The art of life is to know how to enjoy a little and to endure much. -William Hazlitt, essayist (1778-1830)
Had I known of this group, I would have joined long ago. But I joined today. I've been heavily involved in other aspects of my work of late -- and though way back down the track from the rest of you, am running toward your jostling figures on the distant horizon.
Picking up on this group's question: What I wrote today was the fifth entry on my first-ever blog at WordPress.com. Its title "When wonder first starts to dawn upon you . . ." -- which, I hope, is admissible as a possible entry in the category known as writing. If not, please be kind enough to return it and I'll redouble my efforts forthwith. (You'll find it peacefully standing in its proper place, I presume, at www.sensingtheway.com).
I will be sending you a few overdue messages filled with utmost appreciation for your incredibly resourceful postings on a wide variety of issues that truly matter. (We are all indebted to you for your prolific productivity, Naren.)
Looking forward to returning here as well, and thanking you for your constant encouragement that keeps us at our shared task,

This bloated head so boorish.
The above was composed (circa 1952), during a U.S. Navy training class, as the instructor was expounding the virtues of the R2800 aircraft engine. Unfortunately, at the age of 19, I was not aware of the haiku format; this environment would have proven quite productive for haiku composition. Today any literary skills I once may have had no longer exist. But, I do copy and paste lots of Shakespeare. "Brush up your Shakespeare! Start quoting him now. Brush up your Shakespeare and the women you will wow!"
