Take Your Best Shot

And no, I am not referring to a gun, but to an old idiom. You know like: Roll up your sleeves and give the old college try. I’m talking about writing. It’s been quite a while since I have been able to pen to paper, so to speak. I won’t bore you with the details or the excuses; suffice it to say –– sometimes curling up under the covers is all you can do.

I’ve thrown off the covers for now, and I’m trying to get back to my routines, responsibilities, and to the business of figuring what the hell I’m going to do with this new reality called my life. I have a feeling it might take me a while to find my footing, but I’m ready to pull up my big girl panties, slap on some lipstick, and get on with living –– on my own terms.

I was finally able to write, and I’m submitting the essay to the Q2 WOW – Women on Writing Essay Contest. What the hell, maybe I’ll send it to more than one contest.

Perhaps you would like to start 2019 with a submission of your own –– Jump in and take your best shot.
