“Writing destroyed…”: Breakthrough challenge for what’s left of the week of May 29

“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, True West

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 bstarr67@gmail.com if you’d like more information.
