“When you consider all the writers who never even had a machine. Who would have given an eyeball for a good typewriter. Any typewriter. All the ones who wrote on a matchbook cover. Paper bags. Toilet paper. Who had their writing destroyed by their jailers. Who persisted beyond all odds.”
― Sam Shepard,
Are you your own jailer? Log off in five minutes. Find scrap(s) of paper. Write on them. Use this prompt: I won’t let my writing be destroyed.
Please transcribe what you write and send in for next week’s Breakthrough post. If any of you have sent writing I haven’t posted, please let me know. I plead being a victim of the great contemporary epidemic, the Busyness Virus.
If you live in or near Flagstaff, our next 6-week summer writing circle begins in mid-June. We meet from 6-8 pm on Wednesdays in a private home. The work fits for any writer. Write me at email@example.com if you’d like more information.
