Write 31 Days


Sometimes when you are looking for encouragement, it comes in the form of a challenge. I enjoy reading about the journeys of other writers and find myself encouraged by both success and failure. You know, as Olympia Dukakis reminds us as Clairee Belcher “That which does not kill us, makes us stronger” (Steel Magnolias, 1989).

I challenged myself to join other writers participating in the “Write 31 Days” challenge for writing fun and also because I hope to encourage others – no matter their journey. The main category for my posts during the challenge is Family Life and by connecting with others one hope is to make new writing friends and be encouraged through their experiences.

Throughout the years, I have hoped to use my words to bring encouragement as we all face trials and challenges of life. Writing this blog has helped me connect with others beyond my immediate circle of influence. I have shared learned life lessons from recent and past experiences.

With the help and encouragement from my daughter Kendall, I have chosen the main theme/topic of my month-long writing challenge to be “Letters to Charley”. If that has not already brought a slight smile to your face, I must not have done a good enough job expressing my overflowing joy in my grandbaby.

Each day during the month of October, there will be a new blog post. You can check back to this page to see all of them, or find them under the category “Letters to Charley”. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
