200 words.

Hey everybody! I just started school and a new job this week, so I thought to myself, "Why not add on the task of persuading people to write every week for the WWW blog?" So that's what I'm here to do.

Summer is over. Kind of. Or almost. So it's time to get back into the swing of things. For us here at Writing, Writer Writest, that means... well, writing. Please send me any ideas you might have for upcoming themes. I've tried updating the blog a little bit, but if you'd like to see something else on here, I am very open to suggestions.

Due by the weekend of 9/2: "Television." I feel like this theme is self-explanatory, but if you have any questions, let me know!

Due by the weekend of 9/9: "200 Words." This is more a less similar to our 20-minute stories theme that went over so well. Sit down in front of your computer and write 200 words, no more and no less. Submissions must be exactly 200 words (I will send them back to you if they're not!). After writing your 200 words, send your essays, short stories, poems, etc. into writingwriterwritest@gmail.com.

I hope you guys are still out there and I hope you still have your hands to write/type with. If not, I'm sure there is some type of technology that can help you.

Marsi White - Getting Back on the Horse

Mischief and mayhem,

I heard it has been said,

That friends are bonded,

Through the stunts ahead.

The whispers and planning,

The very next game,

The cocktails, the parties,

Rich, loud and untame.

Fun had by all.

Though its the glorious few,

Who scheme and connive,

Motivate anew.

Out of sorts, out of time,

Personal restrictions.

Friends pulling me back,

To their chaotic missions.

Cherishing every minute,

Holding their hands,

Like leading me to water,

My soul fed, commands.

Through thick and thin,

Girls, saving me,

From myself and the mundane,

From my problems and worries.

Mischief and mayhem,

They most definitely start.

But they do it with love,

They do it with heart.

Marsi lives in San Diego, CA with her husband, two children and dog. A private foundation grants writer by trade, Marsi explores her creative side by contributing to Writing Writer Writest. She is a breast cancer survivor who is fighting a long fight. She keeps a blog of her journey, entitled Nip-It.

Scott Joel Gizicki - Untitled

Scott Joel Gizicki is just another one of those new Los Angeles residents that acts and enjoys writing as well. After being born and raised in Detroit, he finally made it 3,000 miles to the city he's always wanted to live in this past August. He hopes he can stand out from the crowd; at least a little bit.
