“Today’s assignment: write the post that was on your mind when you decided to start a blog.”
I think three things were on my mind when I started this. I had this lyric ‘Yellow El Camino’ on my mind and I wanted to use it somewhere. It reminded me of a road trip many years ago, albeit by Greyhound, and I love the song it comes from (Lake Charles by Lucinda Williams).
Secondly, I want to cultivate a writing habit, and learn how to write more fluently, especially for this medium.
I used to write professional reports and cam do that in my sleep. It can mean though that everything I write begins to look like it was written for the board!
Finally, I wanted a challenge myself, not too much but just enough 🙂
