My Little Corner of the World Has Started Righting Itself Again!


Wednesday (Photo credit: teachernz)

In other words:  I am feeling better!  Compared to the feeling of yesterday, the difference in today is truly like night and day.  Ah!  I can breathe again (even if I do cough a lot)!  I can eat again (though I’m being just a little careful, know what I’m sayin’?)!  I can write again; and I have!

Because this is October, I am actually going to try an experiment.  A writing experiment.  I am going to post portion of the story I am working on each Wednesday, beginning with today.  It feels like it  a Halloween story.

This is an experiment as well as an exercise in control.  There are 5 Wednesdays in this month.  In fact, Halloween – October 31st – is on a Wednesday this year.  My goal is to have the story completely told by that Wednesday.

I am a little concerned about this exercise/experiment:  This is going to force me to do more crafting of my work instead of just letting it go where it will.  I need to do this a) as practice for longer pieces; and b) to prove to myself I can do it; and c) tell a darned good story!  This will also give me fodder for the writing group (we need a name guys).    I am concerned because this is going to be a truce challenge for me.  This is going to help me dust off old skills.  Even if this exercise/experiment flops as a story, I will still have learned something valuable from it all.


About Henrietta Handy

I am a Kentucky mountain girl far from home, perhaps far from the girl years. I am an aspiring writer with a wonderful husband who puts up with this writing and reading addiction I have. He also puts up with all of the yarn and knitting. I have four canine children and a ton of friends I love dearly. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 2 1/2 and have still managed to have a good life despite all the pain. So, I invite you to join me in this journey and just possibly have fun along the way.
